The Car Bomb (The detroit im dyin Trilogy, Book 1) by T. V. LoCicero

"a brilliantly composed and complex thriller… fast moving and gripping"

--Christoph Fischer, author of The Luck of the Weissensteiners

Detroit Nielson king Frank DeFauw hunts down the story of a judge who may be corrupt—and is one of his best friends. Booze, drugs, womanizing and a passion for the news are all part of what makes this brilliant, erratic TV anchor a major player in this deeply troubled city. Finally, Frank decides if digging out the truth about his pal the judge is worth risking his own career, family and life.

"A compelling and wonderfully written piece of urban crime fiction, The Car Bomb is a pleasure from start to finish. With its economical and supple prose, brilliant dialogue, sharply-drawn characters and plot that keeps the pages turning, LoCicero has produced a gripping tale of corruption and redemption in Detroit. A classy and fast-paced read."

--Victoria Best, Tales from the Reading Room

"TV anchor Frank Defauw is a wonderful mixture of cynicism, vanity, self-doubt, weariness and wit. A kind of local princeling, his boozy, womanizing path illuminates everyone he encounters in this tight and vibrant thriller, as well as the dark city in which it is set. With The Car Bomb, a promising trilogy begins."

--Patrick, Amazon Reviewer

T.V. LoCicero on The detroit im dyin Trilogy: "This series is filled with the heartbreaking tales I was steeped in two decades ago when I was making documentaries on crime and dysfunction in America's most infamous urban disaster. They are ripped-from-the-headlines stories from a time when Detroit still had a chance, if only its auto execs had been shrewd and innovative and it's political leaders competent and honest."
