5.0 su 5 stelle Fiction and Reality merge 30 novembre 2009
Di Leonard Wright - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
After the first few pages of this book I was awakened to how the investigation of this murder mirrored too many memories of the shoddy investigative tactics used by the City Police and school police in the school district I retired from a few years ago. Mr. Jones does a credible job of explaining how corruption in large school districts a lack of ethics lead to this murder.The "steamy" sex encounters were beyond my my comprehension but did indeed seem exciting and enjoyable.I eagerly await the next installment of this author.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Real Page Turner! 1 gennaio 2010

"Apparently Gang Related" is a real page turner! The book grabs and holds your attention from the first page, you won't be able to put it down, a quick read!
Long enough to fully develop the plot, short enough to have the reader wanting more. Cannot wait to see what situation Dr. Brown will deal with next.

In his novel Apparently Gang Related, Grady Jones does a great job of putting together a well constructed murder mystery as well as giving the reader a lot of insight into life in Detroit and how it is to actually be a teacher or school administrator in a very challenging urban environment.

The story moves ahead with very few, if any, clues about who murdered a supposedly innocent student, Roderick Davis, who was unexplainably in the school in the middle of the night. In the end, the situation becomes very complicated and a whole criminal empire is exposed.

Apparently Gang Related never slows down the moment the horses are out of their gates. Its characters are well developed and by the end you get the feeling that you have know them sometime, somewhere in your life.

For me, a retired teacher who put in sixteen years in Detroit Public Schools, it was refreshing to read a crime novel set in the system and created by somebody who was a veteran career employee. The book is more than just a crime novel. If you spend just a little time reading between the lines, you can understand how very demanding it is to work in a large, urban high school that has to serve all students regardless of their IQ, race, or criminal record. A good example of this is how Assistant Principal Jamison Brown often arrives as school and is immediately confronted with angry parents coming in to challenge him, lay blame on the school for the problems their children are having, or even provoke fights between students. Another example of the author's knowledge of the inner workings of the machine is his example of how a top-level downtown administrator is using a building principal as a pawn in a game to advance herself up the administrative ladder. An observant reader essentially gets two crime novels for the price of one: the murder of Roderick Davis and who did it and the web of crime and corruption that, at the time, was plaguing an essentially good school system that over previous decades had done an excellent job.

As for the author, I can assure you that he too has a lot of his life exposed in his story. Grady Jones writing a crime novel set in Detroit Public Schools is like reading a non-fiction book about the war in Afghanistan written by a diligent, smart, battle-hardened marine who knew how to fight on, stay alive, and be loyal to his unit.

Di Fannie Pearl - Pubblicato su

Apparently Gang Related is a page turner. I can visualize Denzel Washington as Dr. Jamison Brown. Dr. Brown could become as popular as James Patterson's Alex Cross. I anxiously await the release of Runaway.

Interesting narrative concerning the corruption that runs sometimes uncheck on our school system. We see how often an innocent person is viewed in an incorrect light. However when one steps out and makes a difference, believing against the odds, justice comes forth.
