UNDER A RAGING MOON (Police
Proc-River City, Wash-Cont) - VG
Zafiro, Frank - 1st book
Wolfmont, 2006- Trade paperback
The police officers of River City are determined to stop a gunman who has been holding up convenience stores, becoming more violent with each one.
Reminiscent of McBain's 87th Precinct, Zafiro presents an ensemble cast with the biggest difference being that these are uniformed officers, not homicide detectives and with that comes a realistic view of the challenges and frustrations they face, both professional and personal. Each character, including the villain, has a distinct personality that comes to life in this engrossing, fast-paced, suspenseful story. Written with sharp dialogue and escalating suspense, this was an absolutely non-stop read. Highly recommended.
