Good Cop

Good CopGood Cop by Jim Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A well-crafted dark and gritty police procedural set on the streets of Glasgow...

Maintaining the pace of excitement, drama, and thrills author Jim Alexander artfully continues the general storyline from the first book. Good Cop (A sequel to GoodCopBadCop) intricately layers its plot with precision and has the forethought to humanize it's characters as much as possible, leaving you completely engrossed in the outcome throughout. The author has created an intriguing storyline that demands the reader keep up with each twist and insertion of new information in order to comprehend fully what the main protagonist is up against.

There’s no doubt that Good Cop is an exceptionally well-written book. However, it must be said that this story is not for the faint-hearted or easily offended. The author’s script at times is razor-sharp. There are scenes of graphic violence with language that may not be suitable for the linguistically sensitive. Nevertheless, the themes and outcome are just as affecting in the arresting contemporary landscape.

This for me was a phenomenal read. It’s one of those stories that stayed with me long after I finished reading it. The vivid descriptions of the settings, situations, and the people were stunning and the author’s use of genuine dialogue further added to the overall atmosphere of authenticity.

The contrast between tone and content is a characteristic talent of only a few authors. Alexander pays as much attention to his sentences as he does to his plots, shifting or consolidating meaning with the use of a single word. His writing is impeccably honed, full of juxtapositions and qualifications that help to create a genuine and realistic atmosphere throughout.

Highly recommended and a well-deserved five stars from me. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
