Every once in a while, I’ll come across a book in one of my blogging groups that really catches my attention. There are different reasons for that – perhaps the cover art is particularly eye-catching, perhaps it’s a different genre than the plethora of paranormal romances currently out there. Anyway, I saw the cover art for The Crosstown Kid, and I was intrigued by a story of a kid trying to rise about corruption and gang life, even when the forces of society are arrayed against him.
Some technical difficulties meant I haven’t had a chance to finish reading the book; when I do, I will post a review. But so far, I’ve been sucked into the narrative and am enjoying the story. I’m enjoying it enough so far to recommend picking up a copy, which you can do, as it’s been released today. Thanks to Sapphyria’s Book Promotions for allowing me an advance copy, and I’m hoping that others will pick up a copy today at the following locations:

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.
