'Leaner and meaner with every book, Gridlock is as cool and sharp as a knife' - Meg Gardiner, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Nightmare Thief

I am a retired LEO from a very large city. Cops are not as inept as portrayed in this book. At least not in my fly over state. However, this is an excellent read with unexpected, but interesting, twists and turns 55

The crossover of language, spelling and sentence structure at times is poor. Very poor. The plot and characters are interesting but it falls flat in basic writing skills. 35
