The Brotherhood (Precinct 11 Series #1) by Jerry B. Jenkins

Boone Drake has it made. He’s a young cop rising rapidly through the ranks of the Chicago Police Department. He has a beautiful wife and a young son, a nice starter house, a great partner, and a career plan that should land him in the Organized Crime Division within five years. Everything is going right. Until everything goes horribly, terribly wrong. His personal life destroyed and his career and future in jeopardy, Boone buries himself in guilt and bitterness as his life spirals out of control. But when he comes face-to-face with the most vicious gang leader Chicago has seen in decades, he begins to realize that God is a God of second chances and can change the hardest heart . . . and forgive the worst of crimes. A thought-provoking police thriller from New York Times best-selling author Jerry B. Jenkins.

Very interesting book! Got my attention from page one and couldn't wait to keep going. This went into a territory I know nothing about such as cops and gangs. I learned a lot and enjoyed it. It was a great story of how God brings you through the hard times and will be by your side no matter what. I do hope there is another book that will tell whats next for Boone.

Absolutely delicious!I have read all the 11th precinct novels and loved them. It has mystery, deception,love and of course religion. Must read!

To me it was a Bible study masquerading as a police procedural. I was disappointed, and glad it was a free book.

Boone Drake is a police officer in the Chicago Police Department. Having all that he could ever ask for, he is married to the woman of his dreams and together, they have an adorable toddling son. Boone also has an on-track career plan that will see him rise up the police job ranks. Just when life is as good as it could ever be, tragedy strikes and Boone's world is turned upside down. Stripped of everything he had worked hard to achieve, Boone has to learn to depend solely on God even when it is hard to comprehend why some things we hate happen in life. The Brotherhood wasn't a very intense read due to the lapses in it. There were parts in the book where the action wasn't as much as I had hope it would be. The beginning and end of the book was predictable. But what made the book different and interesting to read was the tragedy. It was twist that was both unique and unexpected. One would have expected it to be something that would merely rock the main character's world but no, it is a twist that literally tears apart and removes everything from the character. The book also teaches us that life is not always smooth-sailing and things we work for our whole lives to achieve can be taken away from us in just a moment. Important life lessons about dealing with tragedy and how God never leaves us even though we sometimes go astray from Him are also dealt with in the book. Overall, The Brotherhood has a remarkably well plot that makes the book a pretty riveting read despite a few uninteresting parts. There will be two sequels to The Brotherhood and I am looking forward to reading them.

I have read many of Jerry B.Jenkins' books and I am a fan but this book was by far the best yet for me. I was drawn in within the first few pages and I shiver to recall the events that led to Boone's darkest hours. Boone's struggle with his faith is something you can relate to if you have ever had a loss in your life and remembering that God is always there can help with that struggle. I received a complimentary copy of The Brotherhood via Tyndale House Publishers for purposes of this review, however all opinions are my own.

The Brotherhood is a police thriller, complete with gangs, organized crime, guns, drugs and the cops who put their lives on the line every day. It's also a book that doesn't shy away from a true-to-life crisis of faith. Jenkins explores the hard questions. Why does God allow tragedy? How much control do we have over our lives? Why aren't good people rewarded for doing good while bad people seem to be rewarded for evil? Can God forgive those who have committed the most heinous crimes? And why would He bother? I appreciated the way Jenkins answers these tough questions. They aren't answered with neat, tidy platitudes. They are wrestled with by characters grasping at faith when life has thrown them to the ground. These characters-and their faith or lack thereof-are real. The plot follows Boone Drake as he deals with his own personal trauma while planning a dangerous operation that could cripple organized crime in Chicago. The tension and suspense escalate to a satisfying conclusion - with plenty of room to continue the story into book two of the series.

This is the first book that I have read by Jerry Jenkins and I may read the next book in this series to give him another try. I felt as if I was being preached to throughout the majority of the book. It is a story about Boones struggles with his faith with some police work as filler.

Jerry Jenkins has another winner in his new 'Precinct 11' series debut. The main character, Boone Drake, is a young cop with a family, and faces some challenges and questions in life that any one of us could be facing: How real is my faith? What does God expect of me? What is forgiveness all about? As Drake works through life's trials, and gets put into tests as a cop, he begins to question himself, his partners, and God. He must finally find the ultimate answer to: Does God really give us new beginnings and second (third, fourth.) chances? This was a book I reviewed for Tyndale House Publishers; it is one I highly recommend for those who enjoy suspense and thought-provoking reading.
