Book Review: Crosstown Kid


The Crosstown Kid
Richard Weir

About The Crosstown Kid:

In the low-income part of a Florida town, kids get flushed into the gangland sewer every day. So when beat cop Rob spots a kid training on a track—trying, in other words, to actually be something—he’s intrigued.

Against the advice of his partner, he investigates the Kid and his family. What he uncovers unnerves him: the Kid’s father was a cop himself, gunned down by friendly fire. Before he knows it, Rob has uncovered a tale of police corruption and clandestine gang activity that may cost even more officers their lives.

Will helping the Kid mean exposing his own family to the corrupt cops?

Sometimes, extending your hand in help will only drag you down.

I thought the story had a good premise and good plot points. The descriptions were good and had strong dialogue. It was a quick and easy read, and by quick I mean I devoured the book in an hour long train ride. That in itself is the biggest pro and con of the book. Having something that can be a quick read is good because you don't spend too long trying to read a book. However, you also lose a lot with having a shorter story. I felt the character development could have been a little better and the story could have been a bit more in depth.
This book was given in exchange for an honest unbiased review.
