Confessions of a Catholic Cop by Thomas Fitzsimmons
Confessions of a Catholic Cop is a gripping thrill ride and a first-rate mystery. Author, and ex-New York City cop Thomas Fitzsimmons takes the reader on a journey through the gritty Bronx underbelly, a journey which includes characters from the highest class of Fifth Avenue executives, corrupt cops, shady bar owners, and honest beat cops. The story follows an honest Bronx cop (who also moonlights as a supporting character on 'Law and Order') and his troubled partner as they try to uncover a string of mysterious arsons surrounding a Bronx city block that has been ear-marked for demolition by a Manhattan real estate tycoon. As clue after clue brings them deeper and deeper into a massive potential cover-up, they try, perhaps in vain, to hold on to their jobs as police officers. Confessions of a Catholic Cop starts out strong and never lets up. The action is non-stop and the mystery is involving. A perfect summer read. A breathless page-turner.
This book is a well written, fast reading thriller that you will not want to put down, I know I didn't want to put it down.The story is very believable and will draw you in right away. I think if you are into this kind of books you will most likely like this book.
I give this 5 out of 5
