Deadly Colors by Benjamin Ryan T., which I received for free through Goodreads First Reads, is a very great book that deals with the everyday battles of gang activity. This book goes through the numerous unfortunate events of a gang member, who ends up in a twisted life, when he realizes what he thought were truths ended up being lives. It also goes through a very intelligent police officer who tries to solve most of the unfortunate events that surrounds the gang member. The author uses a great ...more

Thoroughly enjoyed Deadly Colors and it kept me hooked right to the end. I will confess I have a bad habit of skipping paragraphs (pages) when I feel the story needs to move along, but I did not do that with this book. The author has done an excellent job of crafting a compelling story and characters and while it is contemporary in every way, the writing style is reminiscent of the classic crime thrillers that caused me to fall in love with this genre years ago. Very happy to recommend this ...more

I received this book as a Goodreads First Reads giveaway. This tells the story of a guy who's life is controlled by gang activity and the tragic events that this lifestyle can cause. There is also a detective that has secrets all of his own that add to the mix. I really enjoyed this book, even though gang and drugs are two things I typically do not enjoy reading about. I found myself caring for the characters despite their flaws. I highly recommend this book to anyone who likes crime fiction.

I recently read Benjamin Ryan T.'s Deadly Colors and found it dramatic and emotionally absorbing from the start. I could feel myself seeing and feeling the world through the author's characters unlike any other book I've ever read. This is a look into the rough and tumble world of gangs unmasked, the pains of life and death and the very human detectives that look in from the other side. An amazing story I would highly recommend.

Good read I guess.

Good read I guess.

Story is ok, just not for me. If you're like crime drama and suspense this is the story for you. The author takes his time and really gives the reader detail. I felt like been overly detailed made it boring and hard to finish. I won't be reading the second book in the series.

A Good Read. I felt this book was well written, thought out, and presented. It was also edited well. Virtually no mistakes in the Kindle edition I read. Something I've not seen in many e-books I've read lately. Well.done.

I don't beat around the bush when it comes to stroytelling. I strive to find ways of expressing my own thoughts, beliefs, and unique way of looking at the world through my characters' words and actions.

My books contain foul language, unethical behavior, addiction, greed, etc. If that offends you, there's a great chance you'll never appreciate my work. If you can look past the rough surface, you'l
