Homicide Detective Ned Danes discovers that an ambitious Deputy D.A. has concealed evidence of an accused murderer’s innocence in order to secure a headline-grabbing conviction. Danes torpedoes the corrupt Deputy D.A.’s case, and for his honesty, Danes is exiled to the tiny, basement office of the Cold Case Squad.
Working in his forgotten outpost Danes becomes obsessed with finding the real killer whom the Deputy D.A.’s scheme has allowed to run free. But, just as he seems to be closing in, Danes receives a plea for help from an old friend.
FBI agent Phillip Abbott has been put on leave for his last sixty days before his forced retirement. He has that long to catch a drug-cartel hit man whose specialty is murdering entire families. Completely alone, Abbott needs a courageous cop like Ned Danes to back him up.
While Danes knows that Abbott has a seventeen-year-old adopted daughter, it is only after Danes agrees to help Abbott catch the killer that he discovers that the hit man murdered the girl’s entire family. Abbott promised her that he would get the monster no matter what it took and Danes soon learns that Abbott is willing to do anything, including breaking the law and possibly going to prison, to keep that promise.
And after Danes and Abbot do all that, Ned still has a killer of his own to catch.
Concrete Kiss is a brilliantly written crime novel by David Grace which has seriously put this talented writer on my radar. David’s writing held my attention from start to surprising end and left me wanting more. It’s plot and characters were very well crafted and thought out, down to the very last detail.
Concrete Kiss is definitely one of those novels that I had difficulty putting down. I couldn’t wait to turn the page to find out what would happen next and didn’t mind losing sleep to continue ‘living’ in this novel. David is very descriptive and you can’t help visualizing each character and every situation. I’ve said this before about a few other novels I’ve read lately and in the past but I can really see this novel as a movie on the silver screen or as a made-for-tv film. It’s seriously THAT good!
I’m not one of those reviewers that likes to give away what happens in the book. The best way to verify what I’m saying is to read the book yourself. David Grace has graciously aloud me to share a free coupon code with you guys which will expire December 31st.
