Book Review: Good Lookin’


From the gang-ravaged streets of inner-city Oakland to the rolling hills of Berkeley, California, attorney Joe Turner defends the most hardened criminals.

Confronted with an unlikely murderer in a modern-day whodunnit, Turner’s latest case seems impossible to unravel. At its heart is a decade-old murder and a tangled web of family, loyalty, and devotion that has the trial hanging in the balance. Viewed through the prism of the unique bond of twins, Good Lookin’ asks how far each of us will go to protect the ones we love.


Unfortunately I did not finish this book.

It started off as a fairly average crime novel, that wasn’t particularly well-written, but had a mildly interesting opening scene.

However, after the author sexualised cocktail making (why?), I just found it laughable and actually felt nauseated.

I read on for a few more chapters but found the prose clumsy, characters irritating and the plot pretty dull. There was too much description for mundane items like furniture, which added nothing and detracted from the loose plot.

Disappointing and dreary.

Rating: 1 out of 5.

I was provided with an ebook by The Book Network. All opinions my own.
