Posted on June 15, 2015 by Nadene @ Totally Addicted to Reading in 4 stars, Beck Valley Books, John W. Mefford, mystery, Review, thriller / 3 Comments


After a life filled with destruction of others and himself, and his body ravaged by disease, there’s only one thing left for Javier Calero to do. Leave a legacy that will finally bring meaning to his life—and to the death of an American president more than fifty years ago.

The CEO of a green energy company is murdered behind his million-dollar estate, his neck nearly severed in two. Recruited to aid the widow and find a savage killer, Booker finds himself in the middle of a family train wreck.

Days later, thrust into the crossfire of a deadly sniper, Booker eludes sure death with the uncanny arrival of a young woman who only wants to save her father from harm. But she can’t do it without Booker’s help.

Joining forces with a Latin spitfire, Booker and his new sidekick, Maggie, embark on a twenty-four-hour quest to hunt down a killer determined to make an indelible mark on history—just like the one that struck down John F. Kennedy a half-century earlier, which launched a cascade of assassination investigations and theories.

BOOKER – Hate City weaves a historic tale of thrills and suspense, examining the justifications of the unjustifiable.

Booker Hate City is the third book in the Booker series and
can be read as a standalone.  I must
admit I was a bit wary about continuing the series as I did not enjoy the
second book as I was hoping I would. However, I am glad I overcame my scepticism
as after completion of this installment my faith in the series as been renewed.
Booker was working on a case that involved the theft of JFK
assassination memorabilia when he was presented with another case.  This case involved the murder of the CEO of  Evergreen Energy company.  Now when a second
murder was committed, Booker is forced to utilize all his resources to
determine if the murders are somehow connected. 
In trying to solve the case he joined forces with Maggie Calero, a former DEA agent turned private investigator.  They met
when she prevented him from shooting a sniper.  Her reasons for being involved in the investigation was more of a personal nature than a professional one. What followed is a story of explosive proportions.
As usual the characters were well developed and easy to relate
to. The story was action filled and very suspenseful. The story was filled with so many twists and turns your head would spin. It kept me on the edge of
my seat from start to finish. They were some humorous events that had me laughing out quite a few times .  There are
several cases taking place at once, however, as you get deeper into the story
you realise the significance of this.  It
appears that the cases are connected but to find out how, you will need to get
a copy of Booker Hate City.
This was a fascinating and exciting read. Fans of mystery,
suspense and thrillers would enjoy this tale. I am looking forward to the next
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 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.
