My reviews seldom do justice to any of the best mystery/thrillers I've read. When I'm shopping for a book, reader reviews have a huge impact on my purchases. I get frustrated trying to scroll through others' reviews to find the "can't misses." So following this review are a few of my best bets and can't misses!
Rizzo is an honest, grizzled veteran teaching his newly promoted partner how things get done in New York. The performance by reader Bobby Cannavale is outstanding, bringing every character to life as I'm sure the author intended.The characters are fantastic, each with extraordinary depth. This is no trite story.
But the mystery itself is where the story falls short of 5 stars. I found the politics, maze of inner-department workings, and relationships engrossing. I enjoyed the whole experience and will probably listen again based on the reader alone.
Here are a few of my can't misses in the thriller category. You can look up reviews on each one, but don't miss any of these! Gutshot Straight, Dawn Patrol, Winter of Frankie Machine, Paranoia, Power Play, all 5 of Nesbo's Harry Hole books, Rain Gods, Crusader's Cross. I've listened to each of these more than once. Better still, my wife who shies away from this category, loved these as well.

Lou Manfredo's debut is an honest look at police station politics and officer experiences. I look forward to Manfredo's next novel. Bobby Cannevale's talent as a narrator is amazing. His ability to modify his voice for each character along with his east coast accent makes this an excellent listen.
