~ CLOSED ~ "Confessions of a Suicidal Policewoman" ~ Review and Giveaway ~

OVERVIEW -
"Police officers Michael Beckett and Destiny Jones are two of the most compelling characters ever created by novelist Thomas Fitzsimmons. Now the author, who has been called “a worthy successor to Ed McBain” by New York Times bestselling author Steven Coonts, returns with a new tale about the wisecracking, deadly duo. Roving the streets and bars of the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Beckett and Destiny are starting to come to terms with their true feelings for one another when their world suddenly shifts gears. An ex-cop recruits Beckett into his gang of “rockers”-a secret society of vigilante cops who protect businesses from shakedowns for a price. A violent drug ring has taken control of an Upper East Side boutique hotel. The gang needs to be cleaned out and an old girlfriend of Beckett’s, an amoral tart who happens to co-own the place, needs saving. This leads Beckett and Destiny into one of the deadliest, most tangled operations of their lives as he pursues the drug kingpin who killed his baby sister, and Destiny is forced to confront life as an invalid or a death with dignity by her own hand."    Barnes & Noble
REVIEW - 
This is the second book in the Michael Beckett series, I also reviewed the first book,  Confessions of a Catholic Cop.  Like his first, this story pulled me in from the very beginning.  The author once again creates compelling characters, as well, he revisits those who already exist and leads readers deep into a story of love, greed and revenge.   I found, Confessions of a Suicidal Policewoman, to be just as white-knuckled and gritty as the first but with a deep emotional tug.  The book is a multi-dimensional page-turner that offers something for everyone. Like the first, this book does contain strong language and violence; however, it is necessary to relay an authentic story.  In general, this book was a fascinating read and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a compelling mystery.

I like Ed McBaine, so I think I'd like him too. I thought I'd seen him before...I have read him!
And I have seen him on TV.
