Kane Kulpa learned which laws could be bent and which broken after a short stint in prison courtesy of Detective Vincent Bayonne. Bound by time, integrity, and the reality of life in Central City, Bayonne and Kane made peace with the past. Now, gang tension spirals from corrupt to deadly, and a series of murders stresses Kane and Bayonne’s uneasy alliance. Kane balances on a razor’s edge to protect his bar, power, life, and family, and Bayonne hustles to keep another lonely man from being strangled.
Central City is a city struggling for identity. The cops protect the rackets, and the criminals shelter the injured. Innocence is only an appearance, and rage finds a voice.

This is my first time joining Blackthorn Book Tours and the book is called Central City.
The moment I started this book I was hooked, the first chapter [prologue] is so damn good and you’re diving right into the story and just want to keep on reading it.
The prologue is set in 1977 and the rest of the book is set in 1992 and it’s about a detective named Bayonne and a criminal named Kane. you read from both their perspectives and that’s what I really enjoy in a book and that’s also here the chase.
Like I said you follow detective Bayonne and he has a new partner named Adam, but the moment we meet Adam I don’t trust him, or at least I think there’s more to the guy because of how he acts during the chase they are working.
I also had the feeling that he or Kane had something to do with what we read in the prologue pretty quick in the story but further on in the story, there is a chase they are working and Detective Bayonne uses his CI (Kane) and I had no clue who could’ve done it, I always try to guess but I was way off! Which is definitely a plus!
I give this book a 3,5 out of 5 stars, why 3,5? Like I said I really enjoyed the story but the world-building was sometimes just too much information which wasn’t necessary for me and sometimes the story was told in an overall perspective which made it confusing from which pov I was really reading.
