    Good Read.

    This is the first in a series. I have read both and enjoyed them. This is well written, with a few grammatical errors. The plot and characters were well developed and easy to follow.

    A great read, you must check it out!!

    Ex-con Ray Rhodes' claim he was framed on weapons and drug charges is only the beggining when former cop Lucky Lucas is reluctantly dragged into an investagion as a family favor. Lucas quickly finds himself mixing with crooked cops, Chinese assassins, a broken family with a disturbing and dangerous history that leads to blackmail and murder.

    When I first started this book I thought it was going to be a murder mystery and started out pretty slow, not so slow that your not interested but as I got a few pages in and the story (which did say is excellent) started unfolding I just could not put the book down.

    Lucas' daughter-in-law Kathleen convinces Lucas to help out a old friend from there he finds two cops that have major problems that include drug use, porn and prostitution. As he starts looking further to help Rhodes, he stirs up trouble for himself. Still trying to convience himself that he should be the doting grandfather to his two grandchildren but finding that he just can't walk away.

    You need to read this book it is well written and will keep you on your toes. I really enjoyed it and I think you will too!

    more from this reviewer

    Well told strory of a retired cop being asked by a family member

    Well told strory of a retired cop being asked by a family member to look into charges against her friend which may be trumped up.
    Reluctantly Lucky Lucas accepts not for the benefit of the accused, but for his daughter in law and this startts the story to spin.
    The author does a great job of setting detail for San Francisco. Having been there many times over the years, I can picture where Lucky is going as the story progresses. Lucky doesn't do anything beyond his abilities unlike the super hero type. this makes it believable.
    The characters are clearly drawn, interesting and easy to picture. The story is a good read and the ending has an unusual finish to it that mirrors life rather than popular fiction. You have to read the book to get to the ending!

    Too much corruption

    Author writes well, but lost interest when all characters were lacking in morals
