Beachside PD: The Gypsy Hunter
on Dec. 21, 2011
In reading “Beachside PD: The Reluctant Knight” – book one of the Beachside PD series, I was pleasantly surprised by its unique approach to crime and corruption. The characters were not stereotypes and the plots were fresh and exciting. By the end of the book, I felt as though Danny Philips and Anna Perez were my close friends and I couldn’t wait to hear more about them.
“Beachside PD: The Gypsy Hunter” does not disappoint. Danny and Anna continue to develop in their work and relationship, now also seen through the eyes of their teenage daughter and an old friend who works in the media. The authors skillfully weave the fabric of reality into the couple’s heart-warming romance, creating unforgettable scenes. On the job and back from FBI training, they spearhead the investigation to find a missing Seminole Indian Nation coed, adding more unforgettable characters to the Beachside series.
The detective stories now are focused on their colleague, Robert Zaragossa – a character I have come to like. He has no striking physical features, unlike Danny. What he has are extraordinary skills and an iron will; both of which are thoroughly tested by the high profile and complicated cases—from simple scams to murder—that are all the more exciting against the backdrop of the colorful Gypsy culture. The cases are real as they’re based on a real police officer known to his fellow officers as the Gypsy Hunter. The authors present this exotic aspect of the story exceptionally well. For me, the novel has served as a textbook about this fascinating group of people: their language, their beliefs, their heritage, and their customs.
Without a doubt, “Beachside PD: The Gypsy Hunter” is yet another masterpiece by authors Neil Yuzuk and David Yuzuk. It has a one-of-a-kind crimes and detective stories that weave romanticism with realism and action adventure with everyday life’s drama. I love the behind-the-scene police operation details as I did in the first book, “The Reluctant Knight.” And I love the fun side scenes about the media, the politics, the people, and even the Clintons, who make an appearance at the Super Bowl in this book. Overall it is a riveting and unforgettable read!
I know that “Beachside PD: Undercover,” the sequel to “The Gypsy Hunter” and “Cities of Sand and Stone,” a prequel, are both in the works. I look forward to reading them.
