Confessions of a Catholic Cop {book} Review and Giveaway {5 winners!}

I was contacted to review "Confessions of a Catholic Cop" and was a little nervous about doing an "adult" book review. I've always loved to read, but it's just not something I keep up with now that I've got Bug here with me alone.


About the author:
Thomas Fitzsimmons worked 10-years as a New York City Police Officer in the precinct dramatized in Paul Newman's "Fort Apache-The Bronx." His is a Vietnam era Navy veteran, film/soap opera/TV commercial actor and the former co-host of the NBC-TV magazine-format talk show, "Now". A private investigator and recognized security expert, he has appeared on shows such as "Good Morning America," "Geraldo Rivera" and "Montel Williams." 

About the book:
Ten-year police veteran Michael Beckett has policing in his blood and knows no other life. Until by chance he lands a small role on Law & Order, and decides he can start a new life in front of the camera. But when the neighborhood of a young, hot Law & Order scriptwriter Solana Ortiz becomes the target of a string of arsons, Beckett uncovers a scheme that reaches into the deepest pockets of power and greed in New York City, and into the path of an old friend that Beckett will do almost anything to forget . . .. 

My Review:
I hate feeling like I'm giving away parts of a book when someone hasn't read it, so I'm not including much else then what is provided by looking it up. All I'm going to say is, this book really was a great read. Not only did it catch my attention right from the beginning, but it held my attention down to the last sentence. It's action-packed, like "reading a movie" if you will... but be for-warned about adult language if that kind of thing turns you off.
Before I was contacted for this review I had not heard of "Confessions of a Catholic Cop" but saw it everywhere soon after. J even told me he's seen it at most truck-stops while he's been on the road. Don't feel bad if you haven't heard of it yet either, because 5 (yes, five!) of you will have the opportunity to read it yourself!
