Kind of Blue Review


Almost a year ago Ash Levine suddenly retired from the police force following his suspension during a case where he also felt he had failed to protect a witness to a homicide. Latisha Patton was murdered on his watch and he could not shake the belief that he could have done more to protect her. Now, a legendary ex-cop has been murdered and Levine’s former Lieutenant, Frank Duffy, wants to bring him back.

After spending a year in limbo consumed by the feeling he had somehow failed, Ash Levine reluctantly returned to the force believing this would give him the means to find Latisha’s killer. In the meantime, he also charged head first into finding out who killed retired cop Pete Relovich in his San Pedro home. With top brass breathing down his neck wanting the murder quickly solved, he brings in a suspect. While everyone is congratulating him and wanting to close the case of the murdered cop, Levine doesn’t think they yet have the right person.

His obsessive nature comes to the forefront as he dives into both cases bringing him deep into dangerous territory with those higher up in the force. As he follows clues others have overlooked or hidden, he finds himself in the worst sections of Los Angeles dealing with a criminal element that few others have ever experienced. While battling to solve both cases, he not only has the criminal element to contend with, but a number of his fellow police officers as well as he finds his own life in danger.

Kind of Blue is realistic police procedural that takes a keen look at the inside of a crack unit called Felony Special where the cops do whatever it takes to close their cases. The gritty novel also takes a look at the men in blue and their lives as they work the streets of South Central LA.

Author Miles Corwin is not only a native of Los Angeles, but he is a former crime reporter at the Los Angeles Times. Kind of Blue is not only fast-paced, but it is realistic to the point it could only have been written by an insider.

Some may find the content harsh, but that is also what makes the story realistic. Kind of Blue will keep readers turning pages with its fast-past action, taut dialect, and compelling scenes. Readers who are fans of this genre will certainly look forward to more novels from this award-wining writer.

A special thank you goes to Oceanview Publishing for providing a complimentary copy of Kind of Blue for review. If you are interested in purchasing a copy, the book is available at Amazon.com.
