JOFFE BOOKS – 1st in series Blog Event #15 #TeamJoffeBooks #BookReview #crimebook #bookstagram @JOFFEBOOKS @breartonTJ

Today my 1st in series is the Tom Lange series by the great T.J. Brearton. There are 2 books currently available but I am hoping there will be many more as this has the makings of a brilliant series and I am looking forward to reading more in this series.

DEAD GONE a gripping crime thriller full of twists by [BREARTON, T.J.]Dead Gone (Tom Lange #1) by T.J. Brearton

Available from Amazon

A GRIPPING THRILLER WITH AN EXPLOSIVE ENDING BY BEST-SELLING AUTHOR T.J. BREARTON.

A woman’s body is found floating in a sultry Florida mangrove. She has no ID and there is no indication of cause of death.

Who is she?

Who killed her?

Everyone has dark secrets that will be revealed.

Rookie detective Tom Lange couldn’t have landed a more difficult first case. The only thing he has to go on is the woman’s butterfly tattoo. His boss, Lauren Blythe, piles the pressure on, and the medical examiner won’t tell him what he needs to know.

Meanwhile Tom’s neighbour Alicia has an abusive boyfriend who Tom clashes with in a way that will have far-reaching consequences.

The body leads Tom on a trail of seedy clubs, narcotics, and danger which is close to home. The book builds up detail by detail, mirroring the painstaking work of a real police murder investigation. In a tumultuous ending, Tom’s world is turned upside down.

You’ll be gripped from start to heart-stopping finish in this detailed and authentic detective mystery from T.J. Brearton.

THE DETECTIVE
Tom Lange is a brand new agent with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. That agency is a state bureau investigating violent crimes, police corruption, with a governor protection unit and top-notch forensic laboratories. The only family Tom has left is his brother Nick.

THE SETTING
Southwest Florida in April. The dry season ending, the heat and humidity building. In Naples, many people are leaving the region for cooler climes. The landscapers are out daily, cutting back the surging vegetation and a steady breeze comes from the gulf coast. Rookery Bay, a nature reserve of a hundred thousand acres teems with wildlife, threaded with brackish creeks. The Everglades stretch all the way across the state to Miami, choked with alligators. Tampa Bay pulses with the nightlife. Naples is one of the wealthiest cities in the U.S., but despite its concentration of millionaires, the region knows poverty, homelessness, drugs, and crime.

TOM LANGE SERIES
Book 1: Dead Gone
Book 2: Truth or Dead


What the readers are saying:

You’ll find a lot between the pages … sleazy gentlemens’ clubs, narcotics, sex workers … and everyone seems to be hiding something… even the dead woman. Tom will have to weed out the untruths and face more danger than he ever thought possible.  Linda Strong Book Reviews

 

I enjoyed Dead Gone which has a good plot and an easy to read style. The plot has plenty of twists and turns as suspects are investigated and discarded and is very good on procedure, to which Tom has a bit of a hit and miss attitude depending on his needs and is why Lauren gets on at him.  Elaine Tomasso’s Reviews

 

I really, really enjoyed this book. So much so, in fact, that I’m happy to know it’s the first book in a new crime series that takes place in south Florida. For sure I’ll be in line when the next one comes out.  Monnie’s Reviews

 

A most excellent 5 star read! read this almost straight through and cried at the end. Would love to see Tom again…  Annie’s Reviews
