Cop Town is set in Atlanta in the 70's and is full of everything that era was racism, homophobia, and sexism. The story is told through the eyes of the newest female officer Kate Murphy, her female partner Maggie Lawson, and the shooter. Maggie's uncle - Terry, and brother - Jimmy, are also cops. Terry is abusive of both alcohol and women and is racist as are most of his cop friends.
This was a real page turner, that I got hooked on from the first page. Kept me guessing until the very end on who the shooter was. Although there is some language that some may not like it is a great suspense-filled thrilling mystery that I highly recommend.
I received an ARC of this book from Random House Publishing in exchange for my honest review rather it be good or bad. Thank you.
