Beat cop JD Macklin is old school, he walks a dangerous beat amidst warring gangs.
When he is killed his tough son decides to take the law into his own hands!
Revenge is a dish best served cold but Macklin junior plates it up piping hot, enough to burn those
Who get too close.
Revenge is nothing new in stories but these stories remind me of the old Mack Bolan vigilante novels.
Full of witty one liners and tough bulls#%!
Retro machismo of the kind I used to read years ago.
Loved it

I loved this book. I'm really more into romance and comedy. This is neither. This book is full of suspense. I was hooked at the prologue. It was a little morbid. It was filled with lots of twist that I didn't expect. I do recommend this book, and it's an easy read. On to the second book in this series. Enjoy!

Gripping tale with lots of action.

This book was hard to put down. I loved the main character who was like Charles Bronson's vigilante character. I'm looking forward to the next book in this series. Lee Goldberg has an amazing ability to develop characters and plots.

Brett's father, a police officer, was killed on the job. He didn't take a bullet, he was killed by a group of gang members. When those punks get off because of a misrepresentation by a slick lawyer, something inside Brett snaps. His belief in the justice system is totally destroyed. His best friend, Ron Shaw, is also a police officer. Ron sees a light go out of Brett as he realizes that the people responsible for his fathers death are going to get away with it.

This was a good story. I think it w

I've gotten used to the humor and unpredictability of Lee Goldberg's books. This one didn't have any of that, and wasn't special to boot. Did't turn me off trying some of his other books, though.

Dated and superficial. A comic book without the pictures.

Fun read. Murder mystery with some great characters. Not a book that will go down as one to remember forever, but an entertaining beach read.

Whoa, baby! The prologue alone makes this book worth buying!
I am a self-admitted sucker for vigilant justice, so meeting Brett Macklin makes my day. Big warning: MAJOR violence here, but an action read for those of us who enjoy rooting for the guy in the white hat...even if he has to break several hundred laws to get even.

Just another shoot em up / beat em up type story. Can see this being made into a movie, a lot of guys would go see it. Not my type of book. The main character was indestructible, I don't think to many people could've withstood what he did and still be able to think clearly and walk upright like he did.

Fun book. Enjoyable. But damn, that dude should have been laid up for a week after the first fight, let alone the sixth he got into inside of, what 4 or 5 days? He's indestructible, baby. That said, it was still fun and I'm looking forward to the next one in the series.
