Book Review "Collateral Crimes" by Freeper Jeff Chandler
self | 11/17/2018 | LS

Posted on 11/17/2018 4:05:39 PM PST by LS

Freeper Jeff Chandler (Jeffrey Yochim---I guess I can give out his real name since it's on the cover of his book) has written a thriller about a hitman, Valdo Esposito, performing an errand for the ATF and sending him on a manhunt for Jonathan Starker, a graphic novelist heading for a nerd convention, and internet journalist Jesse Contrad.

Fast paced, and relatively believable, the first thing you'll notice is that despite yourself you like ol' Valdo. Even though Jeff doesn't describe him this way, I nevertheless kept picturing him as a Johnny Trejo type. Because he really needs the money, Valdo puts up with more than his share of crap from his employer.

The chase ensues across Arizona and several locals all to familiar to me here in the Valley of the Sun.

Give it a whirl. Jeff has done a good job in a crime drama.

Collateral Crimes is the best crime thriller I’ve read in years.
