The Hands of Love

Book Details


Lorenzo Love, or Ren as he’s known on the streets, is not your typical veteran detective. He’s a smooth-talking, streetwise brother who is quite cunning. He cleverly juggles his home life, which includes his young son and loving wife, a needy mistress, and a narcotics unit of dirty cops that have been taking money under the table from dangerous drug-dealers. Ren has always been crafty at maneuvering his way out of difficult situations. But now his “bad-boy” ways are finally catching up with him. His relationship with his mistress is unraveling, Internal Affairs is investigating his crew for an illegal shooting, and a string of young ladies are brutally murdered one by one with the evidence pointing directly at Ren. The race is on to cover his tracks, clear his crew, and find a serial killer before it’s too late. Can Ren slip out of another tight squeeze, or will he finally go down? The Hands of Love is a fast paced well-crafted novel weaving its way through the crime infested streets of East Dallas. This intense thriller will have your eyes glued to every page right up to the unbelievable ending.
