Review: Detroit Combat

Detroit Combat Detroit Combat by Carl Ramm
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This early effort from “Doc Ford” writer Randy Wayne White transcends the action/adventure genre with solid prose and a crisp, interesting plot. Hawker, a former cop and now vigilante, is discreetly engaged by the Detroit Police to investigate a kidnapping ring that has been plaguing the city. Hawker teams up with an beautiful and apprehensive female police detective to set a trap for a the ring using a fake pornography studio sting, and predictably a relationship sparks between them. The exciting climax takes place in a replica of H. H. Holmes’ “Murder Castle” which I thought was an imaginative touch. I bought the complete 11 book series at a rummage sale and was thinking of selling them. Now I think I’ll read them first.
