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.

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.

Under a Raging Moon by Frank Zafiro was my first experience with this author. I enjoyed this book thoroughly and looking forward to reading his other River City books !

Good read in the spirit of Dennis Lahane. Very good kickoff to this series of the River City PD. I immediately wanted to get the series of 2 or 3 more books, with hopefully the surviving officers. (There wee a few deaths in No. 1.) But now I'm troubled by the very articulate review of the second book, apparently lots of gratuitous deaths. And at $4.99 I'll take a pass and look at book #3.

Not too bad, but not the best either. The characters were good and believable, but the book kind of stumbled in a few places. Also there was a fair amount of missed editing.

Goos story, Sort of a mindless read. Not in a bad way but a book you can pick up and go back to easily.

Not quite as good as Waumbaugh, but worth reading.

My niece lives in Spokane so I found this book really interesting. I was involved in every page and would recommend it to those who want to read a lot of what police officers go through. I found it truthful and in the wake of Ferguson, Missouri, I think it is enlightening and helps us to be more sympathetic with the police officers and their responsibilities. A little too much sex in the book, it would have been just as good without that.

It IS more like a 'ride along' but nonetheless it is interesting and well written and gives a good idea of what our police officers deal with on a daily basis.

This story would better if the language were cleaned up and most of the sex talk eleminated

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.

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

2 1/2 to 3 stars I found the book to be interesting, a little slow paced and the characters relateable but not invested in. One reviewer said it best the book read like a ride a long. Unfortunately the author keeps the characters very shallow, no real depth as to who they are, what made them become cops, the characters felt one dimensional, you weren't routing for anyone specifically. To many questions left unanswered as to why did the character do that or act that way such as why did one of then commit suicide. It left you wondering and no real explanation plus the characters are one dimnensional you didn't feel a loss or real concern that the character that died I think this writet has great potential but needs a real good editor to help him work on fillling out the characters so that you care about them, want to feel attachment and commitment to the main characters. To make the characters multi dimensional. The book is the type you enjoy reading for its fast no commitment to the characters, you can put down and pick it up again, not very suspenceful or page turner. A book to fill in some down time. I won't be purchasing any of his other books but will check them out of the library to see if this author improves his writing skills and if he does then I will become a regular reader, if not no loss on my part. I will be deleting this book from my library for it was free and have no desire to re-read it I cannot recommend nor recommend this book. its just a so so book, if you like reading about cops and want to read a ride a long story with out commitment to the characters then try it, if you want a fast pace cop suspense book dont pick up this book

Very well written in getting into the Nitty-Gritty" of police work. This can only come across by someone who has "been there" as the Author no doubt witnessed while being a cop himself. I would recommend it as very suitable for Book Club Reading.
