The First Shot: Book One in The Lieutenant Kane Dedicated to Death Series

For Tampa homicide lieutenant Carl Kane, death is his life. If a single award existed for sinking himself into his work, he’d have two.

But the latest crime scene he’s called to, an old abandoned factory, leaves him with more bodies than leads. Three drug dealers are found shot to death—not an uncommon sight in the least. The problem lies with the pair of middle-aged women—bound, gagged, and executed—found at the same location.

Before he can sink his teeth into the initial investigation, Kane is called out to another multiple homicide. He comes up with only more questions when the second group of murders appears connected to the first.

As the lieutenant tracks down the few leads, he begins to get a clearer picture of those he seeks. That picture quickly turns crystal clear when Kane finds himself face-to-face with someone that “armed and dangerous” doesn’t even begin to describe.

    A very dark story with lots of killing Executions very descriptive! I liked the story, but if you don’t like reading graphic killings and mutilations, don’t read this book.

    I enjoyed this read a lot, found it sad, exciting and sometimes funny. That’s what a good read should be. I’m really happy that the detectives didn’t try to find a reason for evil, I hate that with a real criminal don’t want it in a book. Looking forward to reading more book by this author, thanks for a good book.

    Very well written. Great movement and outstanding job of building the story and all the characters. Fast paced, no downturn in the movement of the plot as characters blend into one another quite smoothly. Will look forward to reading other books within this series.

    What a plot! Murder after murder by an evil convict and his band of merry men all while baffling the police in trying to figure out Who what and why. My favorite character was the attack cat. Wanted more of that. I would likely read more of the series but not all at once.

    An easy read. Lots of description, some pretty graphic. Predictable characters with more of a story than a plot.
  • Good plot line

    Clunky descriptions...
  • Reads like a bad TV Script

    By LeBecca
    Linear dialog - poorly written. Vague character development. Poor language skills. Painful reading.
