If you love a good suspense thriller you will love James Magee's To Serve and Protect. It has all the ingredients... twists and turns througout and a surprise ending...what more could you ask for?
'To Serve and Protect' is what police chief Tom Martin promised his community, and himself. When he discovers a link between the murder of a US Senator and killings in his own town, Martin acts above and beyond his oath to solve both cases. From rural Goshen, NY to Washington D.C., his own life endangered, Martin refuses to quit. This book, with unexpected plot twists until the very end,is far from the formulaic mystery that readers figure out halfway through. Magee sustains suspense without resorting to any oft-used gimmicks of other writers. He provides a well-written, believable story, that keeps the pages turning. With unusual detail, Magee provides a clear image of his small town setting, giving added depth to already human characters. It's impossible to read this story and not feel personally invested in the outcome. Overall, this is a fast-paced, highly enjoyable book.
