CrimeFictionLovers.com review of Deadly Enterprise

Here’s the link to the review on the CrimeFictionLovers.com website!

. . . I like the slightly old school feel of Deadly Enterprise. The title is decidedly pulp and gives a good hint as to the kind of story contained within – fast-paced, thrilling and heavy on action. The detectives may be rough around the edges but for the most part are committed and loyal, and succeed despite the cynicism of their bosses.

. . . The scenes of cops going about their daily business, whether it be how they relate to one another, or talking through the next stages of their investigation, are amongst the strongest in the book. In particular, the meeting at roll call where the mayor’s deputy calls for a black investigator to be assigned the Rosario case feels especially authentic.

The finale, featuring gunplay in a deserted hotel between the three detectives and an unknown number of criminals, finishes the book off with a bang and would make a great scene if they ever make a Stoneman movie.
