Beginning what I assume to be a series of Precinct 11 novels, Jenkins unveils, The Brotherhood - a police drama that is surrounded by gangs, incredible tragedy and betrayal.
Boone Drake is the kid who could stop junior high bullies in their tracks. He has taken his firm character into the ranks of the Chicago Police Department where he hopes to become detective in the Organized Crime Division.
His wife and son dote on him and they appear to be a perfect, church-going family. Until a horrible accident takes it all away.
With Drake in an emotional free-fall, his career may be in the garbage. How could anyone recover from the ultimate loss?
Jenkins really pulls at the heart strings right off the bat. I thought he would go too far and have this become schmaltzy, but I was sucked into his character development. From the Left Behind books, to this novel, Jenkins creates real-life characters that are instantly relateable.
With a twisty ending, (someone may have become a turncoat) Jenkins sets the foundation for a character-driven police thriller. Don't miss out!
Jerry Jenkins' novels have sold more than 70 million copies; 20 have reached the New York Times Best Sellers List.
