Curbchek is the story of a damaged cop, Zach Fortier. Fortier worked in the police department for the city where he grew up. One foot in the world of the cops, courts and legal system. The other in the world of gangs, drugs, thugs and street violence. Where the laws and rules are made by the strongest, the schemers and most brutal. Read about the transformation of Fortier from a green rookie to a damaged paranoid veteran seeing danger in every situation. Follow along as he walks this tight rope. Trying to make difference, breaking the laws he promised to enforce. This is a story of law and order uncensored.
My Review: I gave this 4 stars. I loved the cover. This is a book for any reader who loves to read about the police. A great look into police work, that is a true in your face detail. Not for those who are easily the faint of heart. Its a up close look at the true feelings of every day in the life of a police officer. It isn’t all happy ride. This book is the true whistles and bells. I received this as a audio book for a review.
About the Author: ZACH FORTIER was a Police officer for over 30 years specializing in K-9, SWAT, gang, domestic violence, and sex crimes as an investigator. He has written three books about police work. The first book, CurbChek, is a case-by-case account of the streets as he worked them from the start of his career. The second book, Street Creds, details the time he spent in a gang task force and the cases that occurred. The third book, Curbchek-Reload, is by far the most gritty. The author is danger- ously damaged, suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD) and the day-to-day violence of working the street. Hero To Zero, his fourth book, details the incredibly talented cops that he worked with but ended up going down in flames. Some ended up in prison and one on the FBI’s ten most wanted list. If you are looking for gritty, true crime stories, be sure to check out all of Zach Fortier’s novels.

Laurel Beacham grew up in wealth and society—until her grandfather died and her father gambled away the family fortune. Now with more pedigree than trust fund, she is the premier art recovery expert for museums that need to stay one step ahead of international thieves. Her latest assignment pits her against a mystery man, Jack Hawkes, who is not only her equal with blue bloods, but also seems to know where all the bodies are buried. Suddenly Laurel is racing against time to find a priceless art object before the enemy does, locate a missing art world compatriot with crucial information, and decide whether or not she wants to disentangle herself from this new male nemesis, Jack, who seems to know too much about her and her business.
My Book Review: 5stars! Counterfeit Conspiracies, has so much fun and adventure, you won’t be able to sit still. Laurel Beacham, has Jack Hawkes, for a surprise partner, that you didn’t see coming. Laurel, takes you on a wonderful journey into art that she wants to love and protect from the evil. Laurel is a character who I believe could give Batman a run for his money. Laurel’s Prada bag of goodies, will make you wish you could stuff just one more thing into your own bag. This is a fast paced book, to save the day,Laurel takes you with her every step of the way on subways, planes, fast cars, and motorcycles all while being in danger. This book is truly a keeper, jump in a go for a ride!!!

MY REVIEW:Great details in the writing. This isn’t my normal genre. It was a short read with hopes of the rest of the story to follow.I felt i got to know to know Jason, Abby, and May. Total eclipse of the heart, that even I painfully felt. I do feel it was a very short read and wanted more. Very content and happy with the story line. Excellent expression on the authors behalf. all in all it was a good read.
