-- Peter Giuliano, Producer of Law and Order, Collateral, Disclosure, Sleepers

MICHAEL TABMAN spent three years as a Police Officer, and 27 years as an FBI Agent. MIDNIGHT SIN is his first Police Procedural novel and I suspect it is based on many events he experienced as a Rookie Police Officer, and some investigative techniques learned as a Special Agent with the FBI.
MICHAEL TABMAN has penned a NO HOLDS BARRED novel, taught, exciting and in part depressing. As a former Police Officer I, at that time, held the FBI Agents in awe, as they were so far superior to a State, County or Municipal Detective or uniformed police officer. I learned fast that the FBI wanted ALL the evidence gathered by the "locals", but would never share their knowledge of crimes. In my novel, based on a true story, I learned the murder of a close friend and one-time mentor, a reverred Robbery & Homicide unit Detective Sergeant COULD have been prevented had the FBI Agents just made a call and told him they knew the killers he and his team had been scouring the city for the eight months prior to his murder. After learning that disgusting fact, my respect for the FBI dropped like a bomb.
MICHAEL TABMAN's MIDNIGHT SIN is so blatantly honest, it will have many readers, unfamiliar with police work, thinking corruption in police departments is rampant. For every "BAD COP", there are 1,000 who are honest and dedicated to doing the best job possible in serving and protecting their communities with honor and pride. The "good" cops know who the "bad" cops are, and most turn a blind eye to them and continue doing the best job they can.Read more ›
Tabman's writing style about crime and the police work it takes to solve, is detailed and full of powerful imagery.
After finishing this intelligent, dramatic and electrofying book with its surprise ending, I wanted more! I hope there is a sequel AND a movie!
The path that the lead character Hollings takes, is winding and real and very human. He is no white-hatted cowboy riding in to clean up the corrupt town but rather a real, flawed human being who is in a situation that constantly changes and who must make decisions to do what is easy or do what is right.
This book has something for everyone, action, suspense, and a love story. Read it and be ready to enjoy!
When we first meet Gary, he's a rookie working with his training officer, Thompson. To Gary's eyes, Thompson appears to be a self-possessed, experienced officer. Hollings begins to see his flaws, realizing that Thompson is also an arrogant jerk who enjoys belittling other offers. He particularly likes to bully officer Jim Burkett.
Burkett makes an easy target. Older, heavy and slow, he's unmarried and lives with his mother. Though he claims to have an active social life, Hollings suspects he's actually quite lonely.
Things turn dangerous when Hollings and Thompson join Burkett on a call of suspicious activity at a convenience store. They discover that they've walked into an armed robbery in progress. Thompson and Hollings are shot, but not seriously wounded.
During his hospital stay, Gary Hollings meets Janie, whom he eventually dates. Janie has a great distrust of cops, having dated a few. Gary has a tough time trying to allay her fears. Unfortunately, he manages to reinforce as many as he alleviates. Theirs is a bumpy relationship, made more difficult when he gets assigned to the serial rapist task force.
Gary Hollings is young, enthusiastic and somewhat naïve. Even after being on the force a couple years, he doesn't entirely lose his naivete. He's kind and compassionate, illustrated by his interactions with the rape victims and his fellow officers.
Sargent Hughes, the head of the Third Precinct, is a quiet man. He keeps to himself, rarely going on patrol with his men.Read more ›
