Publisher's Summary

On a sweltering September night, Long Beach Homicide Detective Danny Beckett is called to a grisly crime scene at the mouth of the Los Angeles River. A defenseless homeless man has been burned to death by three teenagers with gang ties. The suspects are already in custody, and the evidence is overwhelming - but when one suspect’s brother is targeted for murder, Danny starts to think there may be more to this seemingly clear-cut case. Obsessed with discovering the true identity of the victim, a gentle vagrant who may have been hiding a tortured past, Danny and his team start to uncover a high-reaching conspiracy that puts them all at risk - and threatens to open new wounds that could cut even deeper than Danny’s old ones.

A Dull and Boring Hallelujah

I wanted to like this book but I just couldn't. The performance was stilted and the story just couldn't hold my interest. I kept going hoping it would get better. It didn't. The descriptions of Long Beach were pretty good. To be honest, I was about halfway through the book when I realized I didn't even know the name of the main character. The sad thing was, I didn't care.

Too slow and drawn out. Never build a strong case

as they wanted and then jump to going after the head boss behind crime. Narrator was very good.
