Not all cops are angels. But a few go bad, real bad. Mike Romano is just a beat officer, but now he finds himself facing police corruption and worse. He joined the force to stop a child molester from preying on his neighborhood, but to make the collar stick he has to follow procedure. Now he's about to find out that there is no set procedure for staying alive. Michael J. Mcelhone reviewed Angel With a Gun (Five Star First Edition Mystery) 0 of 1 people found the following helpful Angel with a Gun April 2, 2007 Fantastic book I am originally from the NY area and it captured the essence of the city. Highly recommended. gritty neighborhood police procedural February 4, 2006 Four years ago Brian Wilkey raped a preadolescent, but was freed by an activist liberal judge on a technicality. This case motivated Mike Romano to become a New York cop because he wants to put away the animals. He becomes upset to learn that a child molester raped a little girl in his neighborhood in Queens, but got away with the odious crime. Mike also learns that a beat cop rarely works predatory sex crime cases though this particular one haunts him as it reminds him of why he became a cop. Though he knows he should not investigate, he begins to notice the department is loaded with corruption starting near the top with deputy inspector Bryan who is too busy to seek out a predator. Thus Mike begins to search for clues to identify the pedophile before this animal harms other children. Fans of gritty neighborhood police procedurals will appreciate this tense cat, cat, and mouse thriller though it is biased against activist liberal judges but ignores conservatives (i.e., the severely burned woman in Maryland) and Judge Breyer's writing that judges actively judge or else allow a computer to rule. Brian is a heroic Blue Knight who wants to keep the streets cleaned of the predators that at times seem to lock away the law abiding citizens in their "prison" homes. His courage and obstinate determination to stop the child rapist turns him into an avenging ANGEL WITH A GUN and makes for an exhilarating action-packed tale as he tries to follow official procedure, which is frustrating and not often easy.
