Author Peter de Jonge's Buried on Avenue B, book 2 of the O’Hara & Krekorian series, is a fast-paced thriller that will capture most readers. Peter de Jonge has created an amazing thriller containing a wide array of interesting and well created characters with his writing of Buried on Avenue B. Although not the typical character Hercules is one I grew to care for. Hercules is introduced through other characters and their stories/memories of him. Buried on Avenue B centers around NYPD Homicide Division Detective Darlene O'Hara who works out of what is known as "Homicide Soft" because little comes their way. One morning everything changes when a woman named Paulette Williamson comes in to report a murder told to her by Gus Henderson, an elderly, ex-drug addict patient she is caring for. According to Gus he kill an African-American adult male then buried him under a Willow Tree in the community gardens 17 years ago. Skeptical at first, but deciding to take a quick look anyway Detective O'Hara soon realizes this could be the real deal, now all she has to do is convince her Lieutenant with minimal evidence to allow her to try and find a body. Once given the go ahead Detective O'Hara is surprised when she hears the victim is not the intended, but that of a Caucasian, male child with an odd array of items found buried around him. Follow Detective O'Hara as this case takes her on a cross country hunt for answers. I was completely caught up in the hunt and cheered Detective O'Hara the whole way. Buried on Avenue B has twists and turns throughout and will leave readers stunned when all the pieces fall into place. I hope Peter de Jonge has intentions to further capture readers with future books in the O’Hara & Krekorian series.

Good plot Good plot. Foul language ruined it.

This is a book that I would normally enjoy reading. However the abundance use of the f-bomb and foul language ruins it for me. I would not reommend this author to any of my family or friends.

    good story/bit confusing.

    I liked the story line but good lord it was hard to follow. he was all over the place. I had to keep rereading chapters to figure out who was who. maybe it just didn't hold my attention strong enough. if I was on vacation and could read straight through it would have been great. I liked a few of the characters. they were interesting. I'll check out his other books.
