Overview

Meet Donald "Lucky" Gibson, an African American detective. He was considered one of the best, until he joined his last unit. He quickly became corrupted. Instead of catching criminals, these cops were acting like one. They were labeled legal thugs with guns. After years of abusing his badge, which led to an out of control cocaine habit, losing his family, and falling in love with a young runaway prostitute. Lucky had enough. One night after an innocent black man was killed by his white partners, he testified in court. He used the media to expose his dirty team including his Captain and the Commissioner. After that, he became a marked man. Even the Mayor wanted him dead, welcome to Corrupt City.

This crime filled drama places you in the belly of the beast. Grab hold of your seat because this action packed, page-turner will have you falling off the edge with anticipation. Every twist is unexpected and every character is a suspect.

    Who Doesn't Need a Little Luck in Their Life?

    No less than a 5 star read!!!! "Corrupt City" gave a raw and uncut look at corruption from the point of view of those called to serve and protect. From page one to the jaw dropping ending this novel was jam packed with action! As a reader I found myself cheering for the main character Lucky who was an unlikely protagonist throughout this tale of corruption and scandal. The author's character and plot development illustrated great research as I felt he was actually in law enforcement or headed a seat at the mayor's desk! There were no stones left unturned from Lucky's relationship inside the beat to those on the street. I was highly impressed with the marvelous picture this author painted. I was on the edge of my seat unwilling to put this one down and could not rest until I got my hands on part 2! Pick this one up it won't disappoint!

    Highly Recommended

    Corrupt City 1 keeps you on edge wanting more. Ounce you start it you have to finish to see what's next for Donald "Lucky" Gibson. I am a new fan of Tra Verdejo and now addicted to his style. This book has alot of twist and turns with a surprising plot. I just started Corrupt City2 and it's not disappointing! Stay tuned to see what Tra does next.
