Book Review: The Sons of Jude


A new series of gritty, fast-paced thrillers The body of a young woman is found in a dumpster in Chicago and detectives Andy Polanski and Frank Campello are charged with finding the killer. The two are polar opposites. Polanski is the son of a disgraced Chicago police officer and is fastidious about his reputation. He has also recently been transferred from another district having blown the whistle on some corrupt cops. Campello, however, takes a live-and-let-live approach to his life and job.

It soon becomes clear, as another young woman--a potential witness--is murdered, that a sex-trafficking operation in Chicago is preying on illegal aliens. As the ill-matched pair dig deeper, an influential alderman and his son are implicated. Then Polanski is framed for a narcotics offense, devastating the cases against the corrupt officers and the alderman. Only when Campello is challenged by a local minister, whom he meets when visiting Polanski, does he find the motivation to seek justice.

I always love a good thriller and The Sons of Jude hit the spot!  This is sure to be an excellent series full of action packed adventure that will keep you on your toes and looking over your shoulder.  This book is real, it is gritty, suspenseful and yet fits right into the Christian book genre.

I enjoyed the characters as well as the plot.
