Kindle White GA-WW-Booker: Hate City-John Mefford Ends 6/21

Monday, May 25, 2015


I lived through when all the background history in this novel was taking place--The Bay of Pigs, the assassination of John F Kennedy and many others I might add. What I didn't know was that Dallas, Texas (where that fatal shot hit President Kennedy) was known as the Hate City for a while. Obviously it is not anymore. This was the period in time when Castro over threw the prior Cuban government and that country was in total chaos. People were being imprisoned for no apparent reason other then they did not like Castro or his regime-children were sent (without their parents on occasion) to the US for safety-usually Miami. This is the possible story of one such child and how his life devolved. And all to avenge the shooting of our President JFK.

Booker is asked to try and find out who is stealing artifacts from a Dallas Museum by the curator. This takes a back seat to the murder of a rich CEO--then a librarian? It does get kind of complicated but comes together smoothly in the end. Someone even tries to kill a mob boss-----Meanwhile his assistant is really getting her game on--and his "landlord" who he does not have to pay rent--is branching out with Dax--that guy who pilfered money from wealthy widowers!!

I really am enjoying this series--definite laughter in between some deadly games-add in some psychological mayhem and sit back and enjoy!!



NEW RELEASE....

After a life filled with destruction of others and himself, and his body ravaged by disease, there's only one thing left for Javier Calero to do. Leave a legacy that will finally bring meaning to his life—and to the death of an American president more than fifty years ago.

The CEO of a green energy company is murdered behind his million-dollar estate, his neck nearly severed in two. Recruited to aid the widow and find a savage killer, Booker finds himself in the middle of a family train wreck.

Days later, thrust into the crossfire of a deadly sniper, Booker eludes sure death with the uncanny arrival of a young woman who only wants to save her father from harm. But she can't do it without Booker's help.

Joining forces with a Latin spitfire, Booker and his new sidekick, Maggie, embark on a twenty-four-hour quest to hunt down a killer determined to make an indelible mark on history—just like the one that struck down John F. Kennedy a half-century earlier, which launched a cascade of assassination investigations and theories.

BOOKER - Hate City weaves a historic tale of thrills and suspense, examining the justifications of the unjustifiable.

Booker: Streets of Mayhem (Booker #1)

On a cool October afternoon, the majestic blue sky above Dallas is polluted with swells of gray smoke, carrying shattered memories of fifteen people, mostly children, who've just been killed by an explosion on a bus.

A white supremacist group claims responsibility, opening old wounds, turning neighbor against neighbor--fracturing the community.

A Southeast Dallas native, Booker T. Adams couldn't be more invested in the city…in the people he'd served for the last seven years as a beat cop for the Dallas Police Department. Without warning, it becomes personal for Booker on so many levels. And as panic grips the city, he must decide how much he's willing to sacrifice to end the chaos.

With his career called into question and his family in the crosshairs of one terrorist act after another, Booker invests every fiber of his being to protect a broken community, and to stop the brutal, senseless slayings.

If he fails, terrorism will reign in the city of Dallas.

Booker: Tap That (Booker #2)
A performance for the ages.

Courtney Johnson brings the house down in the heart of the vibrant Dallas Arts District. Later, shrills pierce the hallways of Wyle Theater when Courtney, a budding Broadway musical star, is found dead, a single bullet to the head.

Driven to find the killer before panic tears apart the arts community and all those who support it, private investigator Booker T. Adams discovers evidence of a professional hit, then uncovers a lovers ' triangle that takes him all the way to the mean streets of Boston.

And then it happens again. Another performer killed, someone Booker had met. Rocked by the shocking murders, performers and patrons alike fear that a serial killer is on the loose, and no one knows when and or where another dead body will show up.

But professional obligations quickly morph into personal vendettas. Running against an unforgiving clock, Booker is forced to solicit the help of a crime boss, The Shark.

With his life threatened at almost every turn, and his heart being put through a meat grinder, Booker taps into every resource at his disposal to stop more than just a killer.

But at what price?

Full of unforgettable characters, bone-chilling suspense and stunning thrills, BOOKER - Tap That is a wild ride that will test even the most fervent reader's quest for a luminous reading experience.

Sounds like a great book. I like mysteries. My mother was 2 years old when JFK was shot. I sometimes wonder how differently things would play out if he was allowed to finish his Presidency. One thing can change history for lots of things it seems.
