Midnight Alley Review


Ash Levine, top detective in the Los Angeles Police Departmentís (LAPD) elite Felony Special Squad was called away from a romantic weekend with his wife after a long separation when two young men were found murdered in an alley in Venice, California.

The case became of utmost priority when it was revealed one of the men, Raymond Pinckney, was the son of a high profile city councilman and leading critic of the LAPD. The other victim was Teshay Winfield, a childhood friend of Raymondís.

By all accounts the victims were good boys, but during the investigation Asher discovered Teshay was in possession of an ancient mask covered with many jewels. He had told others he found the mask at a routine checkpoint near Baghdad when he was serving in Iraq.

Recognizing that it must be extremely valuable, Teshay smuggled the mask into the United States with the hopes of selling it for a large amount of money.

The case took an interesting turn when Ash found the two men had been shot elsewhere and their bodies moved to the alley. When he realized the reason why the bodies were moved, he became more determined than ever to catch the murderers.

The complex case took a personal turn when Ash became a target. Apparently someone had put out a hit on him Ė someone who believed he was coming too close to solving the case. The deeper he dug into the killings, the more he realized this was much bigger than he first anticipated, and included the Russian mafia, hit men, and uncooperative cops within his own department.

Midnight Alley is the second novel written by Miles Corwin following the highly esteemed Kind of Blue. A former crime reporter for the Los Angeles Times, Corwin published three previous nonfiction bestsellers prior to turning to writing fiction.

Corwinís intensive knowledge regarding the Los Angeles crime scene has given him an insiderís knowledge of police procedural, homicide investigations, and life on the streets of L.A. His novels are gritty and hard hitting with a rich texture that will keep readers involved in the story. The swift pace and detailed scenes build excitement and keep readers turning pages to the unexpected end.

Fans of police procedurals will enjoy Corwinís writing. He keeps things moving, throws in a red herring or two, and his detailed knowledge of criminals and investigations keeps his stories realistic.

A special thank you goes to Oceanview Publishing for providing a complimentary copy of Midnight Alley. If you are interested in any of Miles Corwinís books, they are available on Amazon.com.
