Sex and the Russian Mafia

Sorry, gang, wrote this review a few weeks ago and forgot to post it here.

A worthy read.

Stephen Jay Schwartz's sequel to “Boulevard” is an exciting crime thriller that follows sex-addict Detective Hayden Glass into the twisted underbelly of porn, police corruption, and the Russian mafia in search of a prostitute he has fallen in love with. Diving head-first into the “shark-infested” waters, Glass soon finds himself much more invested in rescuing his love than he could have ever imagined.

But the action-packed plot alone isn't the only reason this is a exceptional read, Schwartz's abilities as a writer naturally come to the surface with amazing phrasing and pacing. He can write gritty scenes as well as tender ones, while crafting characters that are not only believable, but sympathetic as well.

I predict that Schwartz will continue to write great crime novels, but will eventually expand into other areas of fiction as well. His talent with all aspects of the craft of writing promises that this author will continue to bless us with wonderfully fun stories for many years to come.
