Booker: Tap That Book Review


NEW RELEASE....
A performance for the ages.

Courtney Johnson brings the house down in the heart of the vibrant Dallas Arts District. Later, shrills pierce the hallways of Wyle Theater when Courtney, a budding Broadway musical star, is found dead, a single bullet to the head.

Driven to find the killer before panic tears apart the arts community and all those who support it, private investigator Booker T. Adams discovers evidence of a professional hit, then uncovers a lovers ' triangle that takes him all the way to the mean streets of Boston.

And then it happens again. Another performer killed, someone Booker had met. Rocked by the shocking murders, performers and patrons alike fear that a serial killer is on the loose, and no one knows when and or where another dead body will show up.

But professional obligations quickly morph into personal vendettas. Running against an unforgiving clock, Booker is forced to solicit the help of a crime boss, The Shark.

With his life threatened at almost every turn, and his heart being put through a meat grinder, Booker taps into every resource at his disposal to stop more than just a killer.

But at what price?

Full of unforgettable characters, bone-chilling suspense and stunning thrills, BOOKER - Tap That is a wild ride that will test even the most fervent reader's quest for a luminous reading experience.

Booker: Streets of Mayhem (Booker #1)
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:

I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.

Booker T. Adams is a former Dallas Police Officer turned Private Investigator.  He met his gorgeous girlfriend at the scene of the horrific murder of her fiance on their wedding day a few months prior.  When a ballerina is found murdered at an event they are attending, Booker is hired to investigate the crime.  Added to that, Scianti, the mob boss, is at it again; trying to show the Double Ds that he owns them.  Meanwhile, at the same time, Booker is determined to take down the dirty cops that forced him into early retirement.

This is a suspenseful murder mystery that draws you in from the very beginning.  I was at the edge of my seat and could not wait to see what happened next. There's also lots of humor, as Cindy throws herself at Booker repeatedly. Mr. Mefford has a great imagination and his series is one every mystery lover will absolutely love.  Be sure to check out my review next month of Booker Hate City, the next book in the series!
