CURBCHEK RELOAD by Zach Fortier – Review

CURBCHEK RELOAD by Zach Fortier – Review
Posted 2 September, 2012 by Tammy in Reviews / 0 Comments

This is the third book I’ve read by Zach Fortier, and I have to say it’s probably going to be the last. Fortier’s books are “fictionalized” incidents from his past life as a police officer. CurbChek Reload is described by the author as “CurbChek’s darker, meaner cousin” and he’s not wrong. This book was mean, […]

In an attempt to really organize my reading and reviewing schedule, I put before you the books I have lined up for September. The review list is a bit longer than I want it to be. I was hoping to squeeze in some “me” books, but that might have to wait for October. For review: […]

STREET CREDS by Zach Fortier – Review

STREET CREDS by Zach Fortier – Review
Posted 7 April, 2012 by Tammy in Reviews / 0 Comments

Although my review of Zach Fortier’s Curbchek was less than favorable, the author asked me to read and review Street Creds, which follows much the same format but focuses on Fortier’s time working on the Gang Task Force.  I expected Curbchek to be a novel, which it claims to be. But it was a rather […]
