I found his book while searching for good thriller. Although, I was a little skeptical at first because I have never heard of the author, I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised. The story is very well written and has kept me captivated from the first few pages. This is my first book review so I am a little hesitant about going into the plot for fear of ruining a great book. All I can tell you is that this is a good read you will not be disappointed.

Grabbed this book in my local library. This is better than the majority of the stuff I read. I highly recommend it.

I was highly entertained by this book. It is a very fast read, and I didnt want it to end. This book can be very violent, but it takes place in a very violent world. The author knows what he is talking about, and tells things like it is. If you are a politically correct person, steer clear of this book. If you like good action and want a peek into a world as foreign as the moon, read this book. The characters are great, especially Marquez, his story is heroic and heartbreaking. The back and forth story telling was great, and explained the backstories perfectly. Read this book, it is one entertaining read. I cant wait for the movie.

A number of crime novels set on the mean streets of South Central L.A. have been written, however few stun with the authenticity of Will Beall's debut L.A. Rex. An officer in the 77th division of the Los Angeles Police Department, this author has seen and felt it all. His firsthand impressions and visceral reactions sear throughout the pages. Adding to the authenticity is, of course, the narration by film/television/stage actor Dan Oreskes. His voice is deep, husky, commanding. It is rich in timbre, a voice that one could imagine playing the part of a patrician, but here what comes through is toughness, strength. He brings a heard-it-all, seen-it-all tone to this not for the weak of heart story. There's a roll call room at the LAPD's 77th division that houses a plaque reading 'Abandon all hope ye who enter here.' Rookie cop Ben Halloran doesn't seem to take note of the warning nor do other officers take note of him. Apparently, he's just clean, scrubbed and brand new with shiny shoes and pressed shirt ready to right the wrongs of the world. However, looks can be deceiving and there's more to Ben than meets the eye. He's partnered with an experienced officer Miguel Marquez to do battle with the city's bloody and burgeoning gang war. Every sort of sleazy character is on the streets of South Central from relentless killers to rapists to unethical lawyers to drug dealers to cops on the pay. Before long Ben is faced with some tough decisions - the most important one being how to stay alive. - Gail Cooke
