Goodreads synopsis

When a teenage girl witnesses a carjacking gone bad, she is marked for death by a crime boss with no apparent motive. A black lawyer and a white enforcer with an unlikely history forge an uneasy alliance to protect the girl from a hit man with an agenda of his own.

After they find out that the crime boss is the father of the black teenage carjacker, Paul Elliott – lawyer and close friend of the witness’s family – begins counseling them.

As the long-simmering feud between Rico and John D’Angelo reaches boiling point, bodies start to pile up in rapid succession… and old scores will be settled.

My review4.5/5 stars ** I received this book in exchange for an honest review from Kelsey Butts of Book Publicity Services.

Side note: I did make sure you ARE able to read this book before the first one. The author does provide enough background of some previous events so that you aren’t left confused, but not enough so that you are still able to read the first book (which I plan on doing)

This was one of the first “mystery/crime novels” that I have chosen to read. And I am so glad I did! This book was seemed to be a regular fiction book but caught my attention like a young adult novel. And this IS a good thing. For me, I am trying to branch out to read regular fiction but it seems to take me so long to read them. This book only took me three days to read, which was so exciting since I believe it to be a regular fiction book.

The author is very detailed in his writing and paints a clear picture of what is going on. I liked the fact that this was written in various perspectives, but in third person point of view.

You were never left out on what the characters were doing or what they were thinking, but there was still some mystery behind what was going on throughout the novel.

The characters were very well written,each with their distinct personalities and backgrounds.

This book was also interesting for me because there weren’t any quotes that jumped out at me, but that just means that there was a large focus on the storytelling of the book, which I really enjoyed.

I would HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who enjoys mysteries, crime novels or even trying out a new genre!
