And now we're back to the states- New York that is!
And Book 2 in A Small Town series
(book one was In A Small Town).
The small town of Hutchville, New York is turned upside down. No longer is it the quaint, sleepy, suburb of New York City. Detective Matt Longo is back on the job and embroiled in his latest nightmare. Further complicating matters is the revelation of his partner’s corruption and organized crime ties; Donny Mello has left a bitter trail of lies and deceit. With his kid brother and newly promoted Detective Franny Longo by his side, will Matt be able to put his past behind him? Special Agent Cynthia Shyler, (F.B.I.) has been reassigned due to her meeting with Matt Longo. Will this move complicate their relationship? Or will a new stranger in town spin a web that entangles the entire Hutchville Police Department, especially our most seasoned detective, Matt Longo?
This book picks up where the first book left off, with the characters still trying to figure out some of the mystery form book one. Marc gives you enough backstory, that new readers to the series will not feel left out. But I would definitely read book one first, to get the feel for the characters. The story is not for the squeamish, but it has the realism of law enforcement, that we expect from Marc! The book may be slim, but it holds you enthrall and is a story that will surprise you, as much as it does Matt and Franny! You'll find yourself finishing the book and waiting for the next book!
