Streets of Mayhem by John W. Mefford and GIVEAWAY

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.

My Thoughts…

Streets of Mayhem played out as I read it like a 50’s/60’s TV drama.   I could see them men in blue racing to the scene of each crime with the red and blue lights twirling on top of the old time police cars.    I do realize the gadgets and technology is from the current timeframe, but I guess I just over looked that when picturing the different scenes.   I love a good police drama and this was a fun read for me. 

Booker is a great character.  He is diverse.  Being a multi cultural police officer working up the ranks of the Dallas Police Department made him very interesting to me.   He was able to relate to the many sides affected by the bombings.   I enjoyed how he was able to figure out more clues and the reasoning behind the crimes than the officers assigned to work the cases.     I would like to know more about his PI business.  I felt like this was sometimes a distraction from the bombings and could almost have done without it.    The two cases did not go together as smooth as I had hoped they would have.

There were many typos and corrections in the grammar that could be made, but overall I enjoyed this story and look forward to more from John Mefford .
