Chicago detectives Frank Campello and Andy Polanski are sent to investigate the murder of Trina Martinez.  It seemed like an ordinary homicide until their investigation was halted by a wall of silence.  It was a wall that stopped their inquiry from continuing on.

This is the case that changes their lives.

Excerpt from the book!

About the Author-

Brandt Dobson lives in Chicago and comes from a long line of police officers.  He is also the writer of the Colton Parker series.

Writing is something he has wanted to do since he was in fifth grade.  He had no time when he had many different jobs.  He began reading Dean Koontz and then started writing and submitting.  After twelve years he was able to get the contract he wanted.

My thoughts-

Wow!  This book was action packed.  I could imagine everything that was happening and I could easily see that this book could be turned into a movie.

One of the best moments for me was when I learned of Andy Polanski’s faith.  It was subtle throughout the book, but I could see the calming effect that Andy had over his family and the others in the department, especially over Frank Campello.  The addition of St. Jude was great.  I didn’t know he was the patron saint of lost causes and I could see the lost causes in the story and how they had become both better and worse. 

If you like detective stories then this book is for you.  There are plenty of plots and you will never guess who is on the side of the bad guys!
