Detroit Detective Roman Stefan doesn't really see anything wrong with his unconventional methods. So what he steals from criminals. They're criminals, right? So what he's pinned crimes on some that they didn't commit. They're criminals so they did something wrong, even if it's not the crime for which they were accused, right? Roman Stefan is as crooked as crooked can get. With IA always breathing down his neck, he somehow manages to stay one step ahead. Crime does pay. But Roman soon finds his life turned upside down when, on his deathbed, his father asks one thing of Roman - to be a good man and an honest cop. He promised but the timing could not be worst as a case designed to break him lands in his lap. Can Roman stay on the straight and narrow and solve the case, saving his career?
"The Promise" is a solid read. There's a good enough balance of drama and the unknown to keep readers flipping pages and guessing what will happen next. Author DK Gaston fluidly connects the past with the present to give readers a better and deeper understanding of his characters, particularly the flawed Roman Stefan. I wouldn't mind seeing Roman or Shango (loved him) in another complete, separate novel (no sequels please!). The editing could have been better. That said, I could easily see myself checking for DK Gaston in the future.
