Overview

Ash Levine, the top detective in the LAPD's elite Felony Special Squad, is called out to solve the murder of two young black men found shot to death in a Venice alley. The case is a high priority because one of the victims is the son of City Councilman Isaac Pinkney, a frequent critic of the LAPD. Searching for the killer throws Levine into the world of Los Angeles's Russian Mafia, Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans, and Middle Eastern archeologists. Ash's history as a child of a Holocaust survivor gives him a unique perspective on murder, redemption, and justice. His background as a paratrooper in the Israel Defense Forces, and his relentless, single-minded focus on his investigations make him a thoroughly absorbing character. As Ash closes in on the killer, the investigation becomes increasingly complex - and personal. Ash soon discovers that he is not just an investigator, but a target.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Corwin’s second police thriller featuring LAPD Det. Ash Levine doesn’t live up to the promise of its predecessor, 2010’s Kind of Blue. Levine is trying to reconnect with his wife, Robin, after a painful separation, but their planned weekend getaway to Santa Barbara falls through after Levine’s boss asks him to handle a major case. Raymond Pinkney, the son of a councilman who’s a vehement critic of the police, has been gunned down in an alley, and the brass would like to rely on Levine’s role as a lead member of the Felony Special Unit to demonstrate that they’re sparing no efforts to close the case. The chapters dealing with the homicide inquiry alternate with those concerning a vicious ex-con named Mullin, who accepts an offer for ,000 to take out a cop. Smooth prose compensates in part for some unlikely behavior, such as a defense lawyer claiming he can succeed at a trial by never using the word shooting. Author tour. (Apr.)

    Review:Midnight Alley by Miles Corwin
    4 STARS
    This is a police detective story with lots of twists and turns in it. Police detective Ash Levine is on his way out of town with his almost ex-wife for a romantic weekend when he is called back into work.
    Two Black young men shot and one of them is son of city councilman who distrusts police vocally.
    After investigating for a short time realizes that the reason for the murder is the other blackman Teshay Winfield. He realizes that Teshay smuggled something home from Iraq.
    Ash is Jewish and served it Jewish army. He does not listen to others telling him what to do. Instead of working the case he is called in to meet with councilman and milatary officers.
    He has a lot of suspects and follows the different trails. Their are more deaths and Ash gets into trouble on many fronts.
    I did not see the twists coming and guessed wrong who the guilty party was.
    It kept my attention in the story. Would not mind reading more books with Ash in them.
    I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Netgalley.
