Imagine Joseph Wambaugh with a bit more wit and a better understanding of grammar and story development, and you have T. Jefferson Parker. The New York Times bestselling author is a fun diversion if not the most profoundly creative writer around. In his newest novel, he places tough and honest Charlie Hood in the middle of gunrunners, bad guys, corruption and drugs as the law enforcement official attempts to stop the flow of guns from the U.S. into the hands of the drug lords.

Deputy Sheriff Hood is assigned to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms task force. As part of Operation Blowdown, he is on a stakeout when everything turns upside down and our story unfolds. The son of a powerful Mexican cartel heavyweight is accidentally shot down and his revenge is to go after Hood and his partners.

There are twists and turns and seemingly honorable characters who are in reality not nice guys. Hood falls in and out of love and tries to keep himself from being shot up. Suspense and twists will keep the reader enthralled.

Originally published on Curled Up With A Good Book at Steven Rosen, 2010
