A new breed of killer has hit Dallas. The victims? They bleed blue. And the brotherhood is calling in the cavalry: one Booker T. Adams, PI.
Excommunicated from the Dallas Police Department for refusing to overlook conduct unbefitting an officer, Booker has every reason to slam the door shut when the chief pleads for his assistance. But Booker can’t turn his back on the community he’s always felt drawn to protect, even if it means getting in bed with someone who tried to ruin his life.
As pandemonium floods the city from the inside out, Booker chases an invisible plague. He can’t stop what he can’t see. And then the unthinkable happens. Another killing…and this one guts him.
Driven by an eternal camaraderie he’d once shared with his long-time partner, Booker shifts into overdrive to end this sinister game, some sort of sick vigilante justice.
A vengeful fury of his own takes hold. And the damned can hear him coming.
Booker Dead Heat is the latest and 6th, book in the P.I. Series by John. W. Mefford. A great mystery, suspenseful crime read that still leaves you guessing nearly to the last page, such a page turner! You can read each book alone, but they just get better with each new book so I highly recommend picking the first few up and enjoying them! There’s intense depth within the books, characters are so well written you get a great feel of them each. Mefford does an amazing job setting the scene and it can be chilling at times. If you enjoy great crime books, this is a really great series you need to keep a look out for !
