The Thin Blue Line – Brian Cook
My initial thought when beginning to read this is that it read more like an anthology or collection of short stories. Because it flowed differently than the traditional novel, I struggled a bit to identify key characters in various parts of the stories or chapters, but I eventually found my stride. Still not my preferred style though, but that’s me, and has nothing to do with the context of he book.
Definitely real life, right down to the verbiage, perceptions of female officers and the ‘inside’ politics of law enforcement. This authors storytelling is very colorful, and I’d love to see a suspense novel from him at some point. .
Recommend for law enforcement and those wishing to join law enforcement!
Hi there! I am Mel and I love to read!! My favorite genres are typically mystery/thriller, adventure/suspense and occasionally chick lit/romance stories (when the mystery/thrillers get to be too much, which isn't too often!) I have just started to write reviews for Amazon, Goodreads and this blog, although I am a novice to blogging, so THIS is a work in progress - as you can see the reviews are numerous and the true blogs are few - I'll hopefully be improving on that as time goes on!!
I'm looking to network, give some newer authors some exposure and to perhaps explore myself a bit in this whole process!!
I am a critical care turned CDI nurse, recently transplanted to coastal Florida, from New England. (Would love to assist with medical/hospital verbiage/scenes for authors!) I love a great cup (or pot) of coffee, day trips, visiting state parks and other nature made places, and exploring/photographing wildlife. And birds...I am a HUGE bird/nature nerd!!
Thanks for stopping by! :)
