Dark Precinct follows the day to day and night to night life of Vanessa Braden, a black female detective who was just assigned to cover an abnormal beat. A very enjoyable read. The author presents a detailed and complex world in an appealing manner. The characters are well constructed and the plot line is solid. It feels like a good episode of Castle with hints of MIB, Angel, Buffy and Forever Night mixed in.
This is a book by my brother in law, Robert A. Taylor. I have know Robbie since he was 12. Robbie is well read, thoughtful and creative. So I must confess a bit of bias and connection in this review. I love this guy like a little brother!
