Trigger by David Swinson – Blog Tour and Giveaway

Synopsis:

Frank Marr was a good cop, until his burgeoning addictions to alcohol and cocaine forced him into retirement from the D.C. Metro police. Now, he’s barely eking out a living as a private investigator for a defense attorney–also Frank’s ex-girlfriend.

Ostracized by his family after a botched case that led to the death of his baby cousin, Jeffrey, Frank was on a collision course with rock bottom. Now clean and clinging hard to sobriety, Frank passes the time–and tests himself–by robbing the houses of local dealers, taking their cash and flushing their drugs down the toilet. When an old friend from his police days needs Frank’s help to prove he didn’t shoot an unarmed civilian, Frank is drawn back into the world of dirty cops and suspicious drug busts, running in the same circles that enabled his addiction those years ago.

Never one to play by the rules, Frank recruits a young man he nearly executed years before. Together–a good man trying not to go bad and a bad man trying to do good–detective and criminal charge headfirst into the D.C. drug wars. Neither may make it out.

 

Trigger is a good, gritty detective novel featuring a man seeking redemption for himself as much as proof that his old friend did not shoot an unarmed civilian.  This book has a dark tone and less-than-perfect characters that you can’t help but root for anyway. Fast-paced and tense, this book ended up being a quick read for me. Fans of police procedurals and old noir novels should love this series.

Trigger is book #3 in the Frank Marr series, but you can definitely read this as a standalone. I didn’t feel that I was missing anything by not having read the first 2 books first, though I will probably go seek them out after reading this one.
