Booker Streets of Mayhem & a 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 Review:

Being that this is the first book of the series, I would hate to give too much away. That being said, John W. Mefford has done an amazing job at creating not only a storyline that will keep you reading for hours on end, but a truly relatable character named Booker. 

With the city of Dallas on complete edge from numerous bombs, Booker, a mixed race  & unfairly suspended cop, makes it his personal mission to save the city. All the while, it's like you're right there with him, seeing everything play out right in front of your eyes. 

I really loved the fast pace of this book, as well as the "mystery man" point of view. I feel like it gave that extra bit of depth that really submersed me. I was completely captivated by the ending & couldn't wait to get started on the next book in the series! 

About the Author
A veteran of the corporate wars, former journalist, and true studier of human and social behavior, best-selling author John W. Mefford has been writing novels since he first entered the work force twenty-five years ago, although he never put words on paper until late 2009.

John writes novels full of intrigue, suspense, and thrills, but they also evoke an emotional connection with the characters.

When he’s not writing, he chases three kids around, slaves away in the yard, reads, takes in as many sports as time allows, watches all sorts of movies, and continues to make mental notes of people and societies across the land.

John lives in Frisco, Texas with his beautiful wife, three opinionated kids, and a feisty fat cat who rules the world.
