Confessions of a Catholic Cop
By Thomas Fitzsimmons
Officers Michael Beckett and Vinnie D’Amato were partners in the roughest district of New York, “The Bronx”. While investigating a string of arson fires and the death of a homeless teen mom and young baby they slowly begin to uncover corruption and a plot that involves everyone from Beckett’s crush from his TV acting career on Law & Order to a dirty cop in the same precinct all the way up to a very powerful billionaire that happened to be an old friend of Beckett and D’Amato. The two struggle over jealously, drinking, and out of control behavior to work together on solving the case.
This book is filled with a lot of excitement and plot twists. I love that the Author uses third person point of view and switches between character points of view through the book. It helps understand the different characters and the constantly twisting plot. There are a few very gruesome scenes in the book that is filled with emotion but overall the book is a page turner that keeps you wanting just one more chapter before putting the book down for the night. With the addition of the love interest who happens to be tied into the overall plot she brings a softer side to the book where Officer Beckett is able to leave his bad cop routine at the door and show a softer side with a little romance and vulnerability.
This was an amazing read. I thoroughly enjoy murder/mystery genre of books so this was a great addition to my bookshelf. I highly recommend this book as it is sure to keep you very entertained and wrapped up in a good book. The Author is very descriptive and his great use of descriptive words leads the reader to be able to picture the story play out.
Written by Thomas Fitzsimmons a former New York Police Officer, United States Navy Veteran and current Head of Security for many Hollywood stars. With his background the story is filled with great detail and a sense of accuracy to police procedure and protocol.
