BOOK TOUR – BOOKER: Streets of Mayhem Campaign

Posted on March 13, 2015 by Nadene @ Totally Addicted to Reading in 4 stars, BeckValley Books, Blog Tour, John W. Mefford / 4 Comments

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 cityin 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.

Before I begin my review I must admit that I am a big
mystery fan.  Yeah, I know I  have not read much of this genre lately, but I
do intend to rectify that.  It was with
this in mind that led to my decision to read and review this title.
This is my first time reading John W. Mefford’s work so I
had no idea what I would be getting myself into.  However, based on the blurb I figured this
was going to be an exciting and riveting read. 
From the moment I began reading I knew I was right in my
assumptions.  I was hooked and could not
wait to uncover the mystery of the bombings.
Booker T. Adams is a bi-racial police officer who does not
take kindly to fellow officers who feel that they are above the law.  He is a by the book cop and will not lie to
protect his colleagues.  It was this
belief that led to him facing a four week suspension with the likelihood of him
losing his job.  Suspension however, does
not mean he stops acting like a cop. He was not about to let his not having a
badge or gun prevent him from doing what he knows best.   He was further motivated when a bomb
explosion hit too close to home.   He is
determined to find out who is responsible for this act of terrorism.

The story is told from the POV of Booker and the person who
is responsible for the bombings.  This
allows readers to get a feel of what they are feeling and what motivates
them.  I enjoyed reading about each of
the characters.  The way in which they
were portrayed made it easy to relate to them.

Streets of Mayhem is an exciting, fast paced,  explosive and suspenseful read that will keep
you on your toes.  It will keep you
guessing at every turn.  It has all the
ingredients that make for a good mystery.   If you enjoy spine
tingling mysteries and you are looking for a story that will keep you guessing
from one minute to the next then this one is for you.
