Gritty and Intense... Tough to Put Down

MIXED BLOOD, by Roger Smith, was a gritty thrill ride from start to finish. I must preface this review by saying this book may not be for the faint of heart because the book is riddled with drug, prostitution, rape, and gang references; to name a few. If that doesn't bother you, this book is a fantastic read from start to finish.

The story follows many unique characters from significantly different backgrounds. We have a gang officer trying to make a better life for himself; a husband trying to stay away from his past with a family, a corrupt cop with no moral alignment other than his devout relationship with God; and several other people who have no way out of their life other than drugs, selling sex, and killing people. All these people are thrust toward each other after a random incident. With all the trouble that is brewing, it is difficult to put down this story because the reader knows that something major is always just around the corner.

Some of the characters are simply disgusting. Some are compassionate, even for the wrong reasons. MIXED BLOOD is a wonderful tale with unique character development, through a city so corrupt that it is hard to believe. I have never read a book like this, and was very impressed with every chapter and every viewpoint.

If you are looking for something dark and gritty this is certainly the book for you.

Good reading,
