To be honest, I wasn’t sure if I would enjoy this book, but as I wanted to try something out of my comfort zone, I tried it out and kept an open mind as I was reading the book. I’m happy to say I had an enjoyable reading experience! It was definitely nothing like I expected, and I have to admit, this is one of the most unusual books I’ve ever read, but overall it was an interesting read.

Very Brief Summary:

Book One.

This is a Goodreads First Read book that I recently received in the mail. Gotta love free books.

Kevin 11 (aka Kevin Anglade) has given us tales of the 23rd Precinct in Brooklyn. He focuses primarily on Detectives Deborah Lane, Luke Fisher, and Frank Matthews, although we meet other cops in the precinct as well. I think Detective Alvin Alvin has to be one of the more unusual character names. They are slowly intertwined and the end may be a surprise to some readers. I don't want to go int

“Tales of 23rd precinct” is a very interesting type of story. It takes us through the life of three detectives related to each other. All the stories start from where the previous one has ended. So that gives a continuation but in a different way. The story starts with Deborah Lane, a police detective. First story leaves at a decisive point and the next story takes up the thread from there with the story of Lane’s partner, Luke

I got this book as goodreads giveaway. It was great to receive this in a very short time, even though it was sent from abroad. The books is a novel full of surprises and suspense, which is indeed great for a detective one. The story rotates around the crime and efforts to curb it in the city of New York. The book ends with killings, destroyed relationships and in the wait for the next part. Will love to read other parts soon too.

An interesting venture from an independent publisher, this gritty collection of short stories reads like a graphic novel. The stories are written straight from the streets of Brooklyn, and filled with hard-boiled detectives and dirty street thugs, and are compelling to read. From start to finish, it arrested my attention!

I liked the idea of this book. I even liked how the stories built on one another and the end tied all the stories together. I had trouble with some of the writing. Some of the characterizations could have been a little more detailed so that the reader can know the characters more and thus care what happens to them. Also, dialog often came off as a bit stiff and didn't have a natural flow to it.

I think the author is still new and finding his voice. I would definitely give him another try in a fe
