    Can you keep your promise

    Sergeant Roman Stefan of Detroit is a dirty cop. Roman promises his ailing father that he will clean up his life. He is assigned to a 4 month old homicide investigation of a prostitute named Ebony Warner that no one seems interested in. News anchor Hallie Warner is the sister of the dead prostitute. Hallie is putting pressure on the mayor's office to provide answers to her sister's death.

    As Roman and Hallie work together find clues of her sister Ebony Warner's murder, they soon become targets of killers who don't want the truth to be uncoverered. Roman is trying hard not play dirty and keep his promise to his father. As Roman investigates the murder and get deeper into it, things are just not adding up to Ebony's death. What Roman uncovers is unbelieveable and you will never see it coming.

    This story is very well written and has an unbelievable ending. It will catch you off guard. The plot and twists in this story are so well written. This book will keep your interest until the end.

    Can a Leopard Change Its Spots?

    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.
