Produktbeschreibungen

<b>#1 <i>New York Times</i> Bestselling Author</b><br /><br />Major Crimes Unit detective Tom Wade secretly worked with the Feds to nail seven of his fellow cops for corruption...turning him into a pariah in the police department. So he&apos;s exiled to patrol a beat in King City&apos;s deadliest neighborhood... with no back-up, no resources, and no hope of survival. <br /><br />Now Wade fights to tame the lawless, poverty-stricken wasteland...while investigating a string of brutal murders of young women. It&apos;s a case that takes him from the squalor of the inner-city to the manicured enclaves of the privileged, revealing the sordid and deadly ways the two worlds are intertwined...making his enemies even more determined to crush him.<br />But for Tom Wade, backing down is never an option...even if it will cost him his life. It&apos;s one reason why bestselling author Janet Evanovich calls Wade "an unforgettable and deeply compelling character in the most original crime novel to come along in years."

Eigentlich hatte ich mir das Buch (als Deal des Tages) nur so zum Spaß und gelegentlichem Reinlesen als Sommerzeitvertreib auf den Kindle gezogen. Dann machte ich den Fehler, anzufangen zu lesen . . . . . das war's dann für den Rest des Tages und der darauf folgenden Nacht!

Einmal angefangen, gab's keine Chance wieder aufzuhören - zu fein der sprachliche Ausdruck, zu spannend die Story, zu gut gegliedert um den Faden verlieren zu wollen.

Was mich mit am meisten erstaunte und begeisterte, ist die offen dargestellte, ungeschminkte und unumwundene Sozialkritik, die die eigentlich Krimistory begleitet 8und oft auch trägt).

Dies wird ganz sicher nicht mein letzter Tom Wade Tag-/Nachtvertreib gewesen sein.

HASH(0x92710d14) von 5 Sternen Ignore the Vine shills this is a darned good read 11. Juli 2012
Von The Doctor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I first noticed what I call the Vine effect some time ago as I noticed that a product I was researching had nothing but five star reviews all from reviewers in the Vine program. My interest was piqued as I noticed more and more that favorable reviews of books and other products at which I was looking had a preponderance of higher-rated reviews from members of the Vine program than other regular purchasers.

So here is a book By Lee Goldberg which exhibits some of the same tendency. Approximately 50% of the 5 star and 75% of the 4 star reviews are from Viners. Then you have the review bot folk as I like to think of them that appear to read dozens of books a week and have time to write reviews as well. I actually bought this book because I wanted a distracting read and one that was going to be fast-paced with witty dialogue and snappy characters. I was not disappointed. THe one downside, mentioned by others, is that the work does read a bit at times like directions for stage or screen but this disappears after the stage was set for King and the city.

The reason I gave it 4 stars is due to this scene-setting which appeared a little contrived. Are some of the scenes plausible? Well not really but I do not expect all my fiction to be an exact replica of what goes on in the real world so the idea of a lone police officer facing down a gang of thugs in the projects does not bother me that much especially if it goes towards establishing the character and approach of the main proponent as it does in the book. However some of the situations in the book have been borrowed from real-life. The moving of street people and mentally-ill people has been documented before and the scenarios are used to good effect in highlighting the differences between the good and bad parts of the city and setting the stage for the morality to be discussed.

I am a fan of Mr Goldberg and have discovered and avoided authors based on his own reviews. I have to say I do enjoy Mr Goldberg's work and I like the more realistic approach towards sex and language employed. I am not bothered by "bad" language or graphic sex in a novel - not that there is much of this in the book anyway. I enjoy the quirky nature of his characters and he makes them real to me in a way that many authors cannot. As for the humor there is plenty of it which adds to the readability of the book.

Definitely recommended

HASH(0x9271c108) von 5 Sternen There's a new sheriff in town... 2. Mai 2012
Von QueenKatieMae - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts ( Was ist das? )
Detective Tom Wade is ostracized by the King City Police Department after helping the Justice Department bust the entire MCU for corruption. Now, his old partner won't take his calls, his wife filed for divorce and the police chief reassigns Wade as a uniformed officer working a substation in the most crime-ridden section of town, Darwin Gardens. Aptly named for it's survival of the fittest mentality. Not a demotion, per se, a "lateral move"; one that the chief knows will either break Wade or kill him.

But the chief underestimates the man who lives by the badge, who lives to serve and protect the people, even if they do remodel his Mustang with tire irons the first day.

Working out of a run-down station that used to be a porn shop, Wade valiantly attempts community policing in an area inhabited by drunks, addicts, hookers, gangsters, murderers, rotting buildings and guys who urinate on Mrs. Copeland's garden. His only co-workers are two rookies: Billy, who barely graduated from the academy and Charlotte, a black woman blatently relegated to this assignment because of her gender. Wade realizes even three experienced officers can't man the Gardens alone, but he is determined.

The author, Lee Goldberg, has borrowed from the stories where the lone, unwanted sheriff rides into a lawless town to dispense some much needed justice, and dropped it in a contemporary setting. And he has done it with a strong, likeable, central character and a great sense of humor. All the elements are there, but the town saloon is a pancake house, the owner smokes while wearing his oxygen tank, the deputy used to work at Best Buy, the bad guy wears $2500 silk track suits and his horse, well it was the Mustang, but that's in the shop now. There is even a stand-off in front of the saloon, I mean pancake house, where the sheriff faces down five Indians with guns and crow bars without his Kevlar vest. It's a great scene.

It's an absolutely fabulous book. It's characters are compelling, the dialogue clever and sharp, the writing fast and furious and infused with a wonderful sense of humor. The story may be gritty and it would be so depressing if it weren't for Goldberg's way of taking an outrageous situation and slyly making the reader laugh. He created the wonderful Tom Wade, a straight-shooting modern day cowboy hero with a heart of gold and a badge that shines even in the darkest moments. And, he makes me want to read more about Wade's future adventures in Darwin Gardens, the town everyone forgot.

Highly recommended. It was a lot of fun to read.

HASH(0x9270e7ec) von 5 Sternen exhilarating taut police procedural 15. Mai 2012
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The FBI arrested the entire King City Major Crimes Unit on corruption charges. The only exception is thirty-five years old Detective Tom Wade who worked undercover with the Justice Department for two years. Seven cops are convicted while Tom testified against them and has been kept on administrative leave by Police Chief Reardon.

Everyone associated with KCPD including family members loathe Tom for destroying the lives of his peers and their dependents. Reardon assigns him to work the deadliest and most impoverished slum in the city Darwin Gardens where survival of the fittest is tested every moment. Tom says nothing in spite of knowing he has been given a death sentence. However, being an honest cop is who he is and with little help, Tom and his team of two unwanted rookies investigate a serial killer viciously murdering young women.

Paying homage to Frank Serpico, this is an exhilarating taut police procedural as one honest cop brings down a corrupt department but pays the price in his personal life and on the job where he wears the "Scarlet Letter" of traitor. Fast-paced from the moment Tom enters a hostage situation involving one of the cops he turned in and never slows down as he works a deadly beat with two tyros; one barely graduated the academy and the other a black female who the brass wants to force out as racially and sexually undesirable. Diogenes would have found his honest man in Tom, but even the Greek mythical traveler would wonder whether honesty is the best policy.

HASH(0x9270e8d0) von 5 Sternen Ridiculous 3. Juni 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Tom Wade is just too cool for school. He always has the snappiest comments & makes a dramatic scene & even more dramatic exit everywhere he goes. He's so cool that he doesn't even have to report each round he fires like a regular cop does. That allows him the freedom to shoot the bad guys' tires and even his fellow officer. By the way, if someone really got shot in the chest from a few feet away, the vest wouldn't protect him so well that he would get up & talk about how awesome it was. He'd be out cold & wake up in the hospital with a bruise over his entire chest. It would hurt to breathe or move & he most certainly wouldn't be thinking how awesome his cool new boss is. The book is full of ridiculous scenes & dialogue that is supposed to sound clever but is just corny. When I got to the end, it all made sense - the author is a TV writer.

HASH(0x9270ec24) von 5 Sternen Pure Entertainment 27. Mai 2012
Von James Reasoner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Tom Wade, the hero of Lee Goldberg's new novel KING CITY, is an honest cop, and that's what causes him huge problems and may cost him his life. It's already cost him his marriage and caused him to be transferred to an isolated substation in the very worst part of King City, the fictional town in Washington that's the setting of this book. You see, Wade testified against the other members of the Major Crimes Unit, all of whom are crooked and corrupt, and now the rest of the department, from the chief on down, hates him and wants to see him dead. Putting him in charge of the Darwin Gardens substation and giving him just two rookie cops to help him is the department's way of accomplishing that end.

Wade has other ideas, though, which include standing up to the thugs and the drug kingpin who rule the neighborhood and winning over the honest citizens of the neighborhood. And if he solves several murders and uncovers a serial killer along the way, so much the better.

As usual, Goldberg gives the reader a fast-moving story, some fine characters, great action scenes, and nice touches of humor, all conveyed in some of the smoothest prose you're going to encounter. The setting is very well realized, and I love the fact that Goldberg named several of the neighborhoods in King City after various TV writers, most of whom are probably pretty obscure by now.

KING CITY is the first book in an ongoing series, and I'm glad. I'm ready to read the next one right now. This one gets a high recommendation. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
