Kindle Fire HD Giveaway-The Son's of Jude Book Review-2/15/2013

Monday, November 19, 2012

This is a book about good cops and bad cops in Chicago, where politicians and “the family” make strange bedfellows and where a newspaper reporter and a cop actually join forces in a city riff with corruption. To say I enjoyed this read is an understatement—and the ending is a cliffhanger!! First in a series of gritty, fast-paced crime thrillers with an ethical twist,
I will be definitely be purchasing the sequel!


From the back cover:

Saint Jude is the patron saint of lost causes – and police officers.
When Chicago detectives Frank Campello and Andy Polanski are assigned to investigate the murder of Trina Martinez it seems like an ordinary homicide. An unfortunate young girl in the wrong place at the wrong time has been brutally murdered. But their investigation is halted by a wall of silence, a wall formed by powerful interests that will render their inquiry a lost cause.
Then they enlist the support of reporter Christy Lee- and come under immediate fire. Polanski is arrested. Campello threatened. Christy is attacked.
It’s the case that every cop gets. The one that changes his life. The one where justice is elusive and the hunter becomes the hunted.
Frank Campello and Andy Polanski are The Sons of Jude.

I like crime thrillers because there can be so many twists in the plot that make them interesting.

I have always liked crime thrillers. You usually know who the bad guy is and it's all action leading up to the arrest.

I like crime mysteries as long as they aren't too graphic. I really like John Grisham.

I have SO been wanting a Kindle Fire HD !! I am an AVID reader and my original Kindle is wearing down. I have it in a cover with a light on it and it drains the battery pretty fast at night. I LOVE thrillers, mysteries and scary books. The funny thing is I CAN NOT watch a scary movie. Makes no sense, right?

Laura Maurer Storms said...

I always get so scared when I read thrillers - I end up putting my book in the freezer!

Only joking - thanks for the entry!

I love books like this because they have such intrigue to them and always leave me wondering what will happen next. Mystery books tend to be ones that always leave me wanting to read more and more, even when I have other things I need to do. lol
