BOOK REVIEW: BOOGIE DOWN BY DANIEL SERRANO
I know this is wrong. I know I am weak, I know it cannot lead to anywhere good, but things will be different this time because this is me, and I am special. ----Cassandra Maldonado
By Daniel Serrano
Grand Central Publishing
“Cassandra was a NYPD detective, an undercover assigned to stop a monster.” Daniel Serrano opens with this gripping sentence and keeps the reader entranced until the last page. This story is full of action, mystery and suspense. It’s about life and death, truth and justice, winning and dying. Serrano’s cast of characters is so real, so vivid that this reader hopes to “meet” them all again soon in future books. (Daniel—this could be a series!)
SUMMARY: Detective Cassandra Maldonado – a single mother of an autistic child – will do anything to provide for her son, whether that means putting herself in the path of a monster or blackmailing the Mayor into promoting her to the elite high profile homicide squad. Her first day on the job, has Cassandra investigating the brutal murder of FYSHBone, a rap superstar. There are plenty of suspects, including the supermodel girlfriend, a greedy loan shark, a brutal music tycoon and a hot, sexy lawyer. But Cassandra has no time for romance, as her career and her life are on the line.
