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 Tap That is the second book in the Booker
series.  After completing Booker: Streets
of Mayhem I was looking forward to the second installment as there were
questions that were left unanswered.  I
had great expectations for this installment based on the following
My previous experience with the author’s work.
  The reviews posted by other readers.

Based on the above, I was looking forward to a fast paced,
action packed and an exciting read.  Unfortunately,
that was not the case.  This is not to
say that the story was not good it was just not what I was hoping for.
The story picked up from where Booker, Streets of Mayhem
left off.  Due to the overlap in stories
it would be best to read the first book before proceeding to volume 2.  It started out pretty slow and it kept that
pace for almost 70% of the book.  It was
at this stage that things began heating up. The action was minimal.  It was not enough to provide me with that
edge of your seat read.
What I like about this installment was
The way the author incorporated events from the
previous installment in the story.
     That all my questions from the previous
installment were finally answered.

The mystery which was not easy to figure out. I
would never have guessed who the killer was. When it was revealed I was
   I was given more insight into Booker’s past.
Although there was more than one case being solved, the
story flowed seamlessly. The characters were likeable and sufficient back story
was provided making it easy to understand what motivates them.
Although it took me some time to get into the story due to
its slow pace I found it to be an ok read. Personally for me it was not as good
as the first book in the series, but it’s good enough for me to recommend it to
mystery fans. 

Check out the first book in the series

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 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.
