Booker Dead Heat Book Review and Giveaway

A new breed of killer has hit Dallas. The victims? They bleed blue. And the brotherhood is calling in the cavalry: one Booker T. Adams, PI.

Excommunicated from the Dallas Police Department for refusing to overlook conduct unbefitting an officer, Booker has every reason to slam the door shut when the chief pleads for his assistance. But Booker can’t turn his back on the community he’s always felt drawn to protect, even if it means getting in bed with someone who tried to ruin his life.

As pandemonium floods the city from the inside out, Booker chases an invisible plague. He can’t stop what he can’t see. And then the unthinkable happens. Another killing…and this one guts him.

Driven by an eternal camaraderie he’d once shared with his long-time partner, Booker shifts into overdrive to end this sinister game, some sort of sick vigilante justice.

A vengeful fury of his own takes hold. And the damned can hear him coming.

My thoughts:

Booker is my favorite P.I., and his current story definitely doesn't disappoint! After someone starts murdering police, the chief approaches Booker to put an end to the killings. Are they being murdered because of a specific case? Or is someone out to kill cops in general?

Will Booker be able to find the killer before the city dissolves into terror? Can he survive the horrors that he'll experience? With Alisa by his side at work and in his personal life and Bolt learning to live within the law, you never know what's going to happen!

As always, Mr. Mefford has told a story so rich in detail that you can smell the urine and the trash (even if you don't want to), and with a cast of characters whose lives you get immersed in and you can't help but cheer for them and mourn their losses. 

This is book 6 in the Booker series, but it can definitely be read as a stand alone story. However, I definitely recommend reading them all! You'll thank me for it.

A veteran of the corporate wars, former journalist, and true studier of human and social behavior, best-selling author John W. Mefford has been writing novels since he first entered the work force twenty-five years ago, although he never put words on paper until late 2009.

John writes novels full of intrigue, suspense, and thrills, but they also evoke an emotional connection with the characters.

When he’s not writing, he chases three kids around, slaves away in the yard, reads, takes in as many sports as time allows, watches all sorts of movies, and continues to make mental notes of people and societies across the land.

John lives in Frisco, Texas with his beautiful wife, three opinionated kids, and a feisty fat cat who rules the world.
