Lethal Rage - Brent Pilkey


Synopsis:
Lethal Rage follows the journey of Jack Warren, a young Toronto police officer, as he enters the dangerous streets of downtown’s 51 Division. Accustomed to the white-bread policing of his previous division, Jack is staggered when he first arrives at his new job. No TV show or movie prepared him for the reality of 51, where the officers wade through the filth of humanity on a daily – hourly – basis.
Warren is immediately thrown into a war between the cops of 51 and a new crack cocaine dealer intent on taking over the downtown drug trade. No one is safe from the dealer’s quest for domination and soon the war becomes horrifically personal for Jack.
Working with the boss of the division’s elite Major Crime Unit, Jack learns there is an imperceptible yet enormous difference between the law and justice, and being a police officer and surviving as a 51 street cop.

My Opinion:
By looking at the cover, I figured this book to be an on-the-edge-of-your-seat kind of story. It wasn't that, but what I did get, I liked.
The story follows the life of a city police officer, and though the author changed the story and calls it fiction, I live close to the city and believe most of the stories are closer to truth. I love the setting in which the author wrote it too. He writes it like a journal entry. That adds a good effect to the story.
Not the most amazing book I ever read, but one I will pass around.
(3/5)

  1. It sounds like an interesting story and I can understand why he probably went with fiction.

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
