Sunset Blues: The Shadow - Book 1 - Justice is Relative.
By Renée Topper.
Rick Cruz, an ex undercover cop, is accused of murdering his uncle who also happens to be the District Attorney. Not the best Monday in Rick's life, huh?
This is a relatively short story, hence it is a quick read.
The story is in the blurb of the book, I don't want to give away what happens, so we will avoid details for now.
So, Rick is an ex cop.
He is quite likeable even though troubled at times.
His personal and professional lives run in parallels, they often collide and at some point Rick finds himself being accused of a murder... To add more trouble to the situation, the victim is his uncle.
Add to the mix a woman and you have a lot more than Rick bargained for.
The book is set at fast pace, although the manner in which it is narrated was not my style. It is quite dynamic, and keeps the story going, yet it seemed to me that it lacked some depth and at times it felt like an adapted shortened version of itself, skipping details and descriptions that would add to the pace more content.
I would much like some more details added to this story, more insightful glimpse. After all, Rick is a cop. And cop's life is never boring!
