Overview

A violent robber is loose in River City. Meet the cops that must take him down. Stefan Kopriva, a young hotshot. Katie MacLeod, a woman in what is still mostly a man's world. Karl Winter, about to retire but with one more good bust left in him. And Thomas Chisolm, a former Green Beret who knows how dangerous a man like the Scarface Robber can be. These are the patrol officers of River City - that mythical thin blue line between society and anarchy. They must stop the robber, all the while juggling divorces, love affairs, internal politics, a hostile media, vengeful gang members and a civilian population that isn't always understanding or even grateful.

Written by a real cop with real experience, Under a Raging Moon is like a paperback ride-along. Enjoy the ride.

    Very good book and well worth reading.  This is the second book

    Very good book and well worth reading.  This is the second book I have read by this author and was not disappointed.  Yes, there is some 
    foul language, but I feel it was not overbearing.
    There are 646 pages in this book.

    Unexpected, but good!

    This book read more like a week of what police officers go through. If you are looking for a typical crime novel, this is not it. The author is an officer for the Spokane PD and the books are based in Spokane, which is my hometown. Therefore, I may be a little bias. A previous reviewer says this book is like a ride-along. I can't think of a better way to describe it.

    Outstanding Crime Novel!

    Under a Raging Moon will more than satisfy those readers who enjoy lots of action, engaging characters, pulsating suspense, and honest straightforward writing. Zafiro knows how to grab a reader's attention as evident in the beginning of the story. His real-life work in law enforcement is evident in terms of making the characters real and the action believable. River City is a place that many of us can identify with regardless of where we live. I really enjoyed this novel and am looking forward to reading the second one in the series, Heroes Often Fail. If you are looking for a well written, engaging crime novel, I can highly recommend it.

    A reviewer

    The men and women who make up the River City police department are human--are combatants--have lives, loves and concerns. They put their lives on the line every minute of every shift and then some. We are taken into those lives and minds. We feel what they feel and experience the relief of having got the bad guys, and being able to talk about it. Simple traffic stops that aren't so simple. Domestic violence calls that put terror in the unprepared. Thieves with guns that like to use them. Even the routine work of reports and row call take on an air of expectation. Some live. Some die. And of course don't forget the inevitable push and pull struggle of climbing the ladder to the top rung in the Department, deserved or not. In this first book of the River City Series, Frank Zafiro has written a gripping story of the men and women in blue who live by and for the law. You will find yourself lost in the lives of his characters. Review by Wanda C. Keesey
