The first in Broadmeadow’s Josh Williams series, Collision Course is not for those who wince at raw and graphic language. That being said, this debut legal thriller has very defined and strong characters, a solid story and leaves you with a desire to learn more about Josh and his friends. The message I took from reading this book is that there are self-serving crooked politicians at every level of government who will stop at nothing to further their personal ambitions. Of course, the good guys prevail here, but getting there was a challenge that kept me awake to the wee hours of the morning just so I could read the last page. I also admire the author’s ability to add a cop’s cynicism and rather dark humor. There were a couple of places that I laughed until the tears flowed. A great read for the guys on your shopping list.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 149732145X, Paperback)

Ambition, Politics. Murder
Elements in the tragic collision of two lives.
Anthony 'JoJo' Machado decorated Marine combat veteran and  Detective Sergeant Josh Williams, East Providence, Rhode Island Police Department
Two men inextricably linked by circumstances beyond their control. One will die. One will face the loss of everything he holds dear.
Collision Course is the riveting story of blind political ambition trampling truth. US Attorney Robert Collucci, candidate for the US Senate, will stop at nothing to succeed, using the rage of racial inequality to fuel his quest for power.
Williams and Machado are pawns in this game of politics. 
One person stands for the truth against the power of the government. A sarcastic, misogynistic, former Green Beret, defense lawyer named Harrison "Hawk" Bennett, risking his career to set things right. 
Collision Course is Joseph Wambaugh meets Mayberry RFD. Big city drama intermixed with small city politics.
