(Tales of the 23rd Precinct #2)
To-be Published on: July 21st 2o15
Synopsis (provided by author):
Many often think that they know the characters and as well as motives behind Brooklyn’s own 23rd precinct. Well the fact of the matter is that they don’t as detectives find that scratching your head may be the key to figuring out where exactly it could have all went wrong. Moreover, this just so happens to be the dilemma of Parkside avenue’s finest as they now find themselves entangled within a twisted end at every single corner. However, what they haven’t realized is that someone amongst their own ranks has been leading them astray and is the cause of them backtracking as a result.

Note: I received an ARC copy of this book from the author, which doesn’t affect opinion of the book. I was not compensated for this review.
After enjoying Tales of the 23rd Precinct, I was interested in finding how I would enjoy this one. I’m happy to say I found Frankly TWISTED just as enjoyable as its predecessor.
Readers delve deeper into the world of the 23rd Precinct, and follow different detectives as they pursue the guilty. Little did they know the guilty was among them… and right under their noses.
The plot for Frankly TWISTED is a bit similar to Tales of the 23rd Precinct in theory, however in reading the whole story itself, the novel is assuredly different from the first. The same cliffhangers are there, along with different character POV that kept the novel diverse and interesting. There were several chilling, ‘dark’ moments in the novel, which were interesting and had me continuing the story as well.
The characters remained mostly the same since the previous novel, in that they were well-written and had several different layers to them that were interesting to read into throughout the novel. Each character had a distinct voice to them, and so it wasn’t hard to distinguish between the POV’s, which I appreciated. I was also able to keep better track of the characters this time, and was familiar with them as well, a plus to reading Tales of the 23rd Precinct.
As for the writing style, there were no dramatic changes in comparison to the style in Tales of the 23rd Precinct, so there’s really nothing new to say. Like the previous novel, the writing style suited the story and gave a good look into what was happening in the story in a clear and effective manner.
If you have read Tales of the 23rd Precinct and enjoyed it, Frankly TWISTED wraps up things nicely (which is why I’m intrigued as to what could happen in the next book), and is an interesting novel. Overall, this books is a solid 3.5 stars. If you’re more of a contemporary, paranormal, dystopia and fantasy kind of person, I can’t guarantee you’ll enjoy this, but if you’re interested, there’s no harm in trying it out when it’s released.
