    "The Permit" is an amazing read and is very relevant to what is going on in the world in recent times. It is based on the true events surrounding the death of the author's son, Erik, who was tragically killed by the Las Vegas Police. Although this book is a work of fiction, it is hard to not get caught up with the fact that we have recently had some high profile cases just like this in the news. William B. Scott sheds light on the misuse of power and the corruption that is happening within our police force and government It is quite scary to think about the fact that his son was just going to Costco with his girlfriend and was legally carrying a registered firearm when a power hungry, butt hurt rent-a-cop alerts the cops that they had a green beret with a loaded weapon and poor Erik gets shot and killed for no reason.
    This is a must read and I honestly could not put the book down. It is engaging from the very first page and you will get so engrossed in the story that you will not realized how much time has passed. I applaud Mr. Scott for writing such an eye opening heartbreaking story and I will definitely be suggesting it to friends. I recommend this book for anyone that loves thrillers, corruption, dirty cops, conspiracy, and good books!!! I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    The Permit is a novel about the corruption in police forces, and follows the death and repercussions of an innocent man killed by the police. When Erik Scott is killed by an inept cop who thinks he is a danger, many people within the precinct work to cover up the death. With little regard for the truth or justice, the corrupt cops look for any way to cover their error and protect themselves. But it turns out that Scott had connections to a black ops team, who now are working against the corrupt cops and those who help them. I think that the cover up itself was really chilling in how plausible it seemed, and the revenge that follows was very gripping and intense.

    This is one of the most engaging, intense novels I had the pleasure of reading. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. The story is completely original and from start to finish it keeps you guessing. This is a book you will NOT want to put down. "The Permit" is a story based off of an actual event involving the authors son. We all known there is corruption within the police force, but this novel shows how far police go to keep secrets between the force. The retaliation for what happened to the main character, Erik Scott blew my mind away with creativity. Towards the end of the novel, the cops that were involved in the death of Scott start to get murdered one by one. The manner that they are murdered makes you wonder if the government is actually capable of such acts. Don't let the size of this book discourage you, it's definitely worth taking the time to read and you won't be disappointed. I would recommend this book to anyone that loves suspense, corruption, and thrill seekers.
    I can't wait to read the second book of this series, I have no doubt it will be as good as the first.
