My Impressions: Hard boiled action, vigilante justice.
Tate Drawdy – Savannah Ga. Detective
Jimmy Patterson - Detective
John Robert Griffin – psychopath.
Tate Drawdy, the tough, handsome new detective in town is soon engaged in working three separate cases. He didn't count on help from a 'friendly' psychopathic killer who also has Tate in his sights. The psychopath, a demented nun, and a sexual predator priest add color and interest to this rough and tumble tale.
Sometimes Tate's worst enemy is himself as he plays lone wolf and gets deeper in trouble than he can handle.
Tate's no-nonsense approach to solving problems draws the wrath of a group of rogue officers who have their own vision of police work. To those officer's dismay, Tate is quickly 'adopted' by an experienced and honest Detective.
Toward the end, Tate meets a group of retired out-of-town officers who enjoy thwarting the bad guys by 'assisting' active officers. Their off the books actions get the job done in exciting and imaginative style.
The editing and sentence structure of Tate Drawdy is excellent.
The author has interspersed short, choppy fragments and done it well. It gives a fresh cadence to the story.
The plot is excellent, involved and thrilling.
The descriptions of Savannah and its old mansions added to the feeling of being in the old south.
Character development is thorough for the two main characters and more than adequate for sub-characters.
I highly recommend Tate Drawdy for crime story fans. Try it. You won't be disappointed.
