Sons of Jude

About The Book:  Saint Jude is the patron saint of lost causes and police officers.  When Chicago detectives Frank Campello and Andy Polanski are assigned to investigate the murder of Trina Martinez it seems like an ordinary homicide.  An unfortunate young girl in the wrong place a the wrong time has been brutally murdered.  But their investigation is halted by a wall of silence, a wall formed by powerful interests that will render their inquiry a lost cause.  Then they enlist the support of reporter Christy Lee - and come under immediate fire.  Polanski is arrested, Campello is threatened, and Christy is attacked. It's the case that every cop ets.  The one that changes his life.  The one where justice is elusive and the hunter becomes the hunted.  Frank Campello and Andy Polanski are The Sons of Jude.

About The Author:  Brandt Dodson comes from a long line of police officers, and was employed by the Indianapolis office of the FBI.  he has lived in Chicago and travels to the city regularly.  He is the creator of the Colton Parker series and author of several stand-alone thrillers.  You can find him at:

My Thoughts On The Book:   This book is all that and more.  I am not a huge cop book kind of reader but this one was gritty, real, amazing, and addicting.  I have had friends and family in law enforcement and know better than to base my reaction on the television cop stories.   The whole book just felt amazingly real.  I began reading this book early in the evening during primetime television and could not put it down. I read the whole book in one night and sat there disturbed during the reading when sounds came from outside my house.  I am glad it was a Friday night and I did not have to go to work the next day. This book is a must read and I hope to read more by Brandt Dodson in the future.
