    Spicy Mexicantown Detroit Thriller

    I really enjoyed reading this crime mystery/thriller set in Detroit. August Octavio Snow grew up in a home full of love in the Mexicantown neighborhood, his father black, his mother Mexican. He followed his father's footsteps and became a cop, but then he outed the corrupt and was wrongfully fired, and ended up winning a $12 million lawsuit against the city. The next year he spent traveling the glove and experiencing life. Well.He's come back now. A cruel, rich old woman summons him upon his return and asks him to look into her company. He refuses. Two days later she is dead, and he is left feeling guilty as hell, so begins to investigate... I felt like I personally knew several of the characters by the time I was done reading this book. I had a special soft spot for "Skittles" and Frank. Many important scenes in the book occurred at restaurants or mentioned a meal, many times mouthwateringly spicy and delicious Mexican dishes. There was a LOT of action w/fists and guns and tactical thinking. I did pinpoint who had killed the rich old lady, but not her main reason for doing so; that was a "nice" surprise... in the sense that I enjoy twists I don't expect, not the actual reason being nice. The writing was solid... nothing flowery, not too many metaphors, much Spanish sprinkling the characters' discussions and thoughts. August seemed pretty well rounded for a main character and one can tell he was raised to be a truly good man, even if he doesn't talk or act great all the time. Give this one a read if you enjoy a mystery/thriller with a more unique main character, in that he isn't some hot white dude, but more of a (from the book) "Dwayne Rocky" looking guy! I look forward to reading book #2 and other future installments in this series.
