My Review
 Despite being professionally published the book could have done with some professional editing and proof reading.  There are the odd few spelling mistakes within the text which did undermine the novel.

I couldn't really get to grips with the main detective of the story.  On the one hand Preuss does have a human element and a very touching relationship with his disabled son but can also be a hard detective who is tough with criminals and suspects.  It was two jarring aspects of his character.

But otherwise it had a very good plot that seemed that has a good background with the issues Detroit is facing and takes us into the world of Detroit and its drug gangs and potentially even a terrorist plot.  The book was well put together apart from aforementioned issues.
