My kind of story! “THE CAR BOMB,The detroit im dyin Trilogy-Book 1” by T.V. LoCicero



Detroit’s top TV newsman Frank DeFauw hunts down the story of a judge who may be corrupt—and is one of his best friends. Booze, drugs, womanizing and a passion for the news are all part of what makes brilliant, erratic Frank a major player in this deeply troubled city.

Plagued by his own dark pleasures and followed by a deadly assassin, Frank is finally forced to decide if digging out the truth about a bribe to his pal the judge is worth risking his career, his family and his life.

With supple prose, brilliant dialogue, complex characters and a twisting plot, this opening salvo of The detroit im dyin Trilogy is a fast-paced urban crime thriller, a classic noir story of corruption, betrayal and murder.


This is my kind of story!!! Within the first three pages, this Author manages to make you connect with the characters and explosively pull you into the story.

This is my favorite kind of writing. I really enjoy when an Author briefly introduces me to the characters, and then takes off with the story.

The main character, Frank, is likeable and unlikable in that making the character more relatable kind of way. You cheer for Frank, but sometimes he makes you shake your head, which really makes him feel more real.

This book was fast paced in my opinion. Well rounded plot and characters.

The only reason it took four sittings for me to get through, is because my real world life kept interrupting. Had I had the proper amount of free time, I would have easily read this from cover to cover.

I will continue to stick with this series, and look forward to reading them.

This is currently available for $3.99 on Amazon and would make a great weekend read!
