No less than a 5 star read!!!! "Corrupt City" gave a raw and uncut look at corruption from the point of view of those called to serve and protect. From page one to the jaw dropping ending this novel was jam packed with action! As a reader I found myself cheering for the main character Lucky who was an unlikely protagonist throughout this tale of corruption and scandal. The author's character and plot development illustrated great research as I felt he was actually in law enforcement or headed a seat at the mayor's desk! There were no stones left unturned from Lucky's relationship inside the beat to those on the street. I was highly impressed with the marvelous picture this author painted. I was on the edge of my seat unwilling to put this one down and could not rest until I got my hands on part 2! Pick this one up it won't disappoint!

Corrupt City 1 keeps you on edge wanting more. Ounce you start it you have to finish to see what's next for Donald "Lucky" Gibson. I am a new fan of Tra Verdejo and now addicted to his style. This book has alot of twist and turns with a surprising plot. I just started Corrupt City2 and it's not disappointing! Stay tuned to see what Tra does next.
