She developed her love for reading and writing early in life through the encouragement of teachers in her elementary school where her first short story, The Little Read Shoes won her, her first award after participating in a literary contest. A few years later suffering from circumstances out of her control, she found herself spiraling into darkness trapped in a life consumed by drugs and living in the streets as a way to escape her home life. The world had counted her out, however God has a plan for her life! After struggling with and conquering a battle with a ten year drug addiction and another ten year war to maintain her sobriety. She went on to work in the field of Dentistry as an assistant. She worked in the field for several years until she realized she was neglecting her passion and her dream of becoming an author. With the love encouragement and support of her husband, Anthony, she quit working to pursue her dream. She has written several novels such as Brothaz, Brothaz Trail of Blood, Brothaz The Family Ties, Shut Inn, Switched, Deadly Secrets, Jasmines Revenge and many more all soon to be gracing books store shelves and reading devices everywhere.

 The author wrote a book full of action and drama.  Fast paced but to me the storyline was rather the usual.  Crumb, a well known physician is mugged at gunpoint and goes on the prowl to change the city and rid it of criminals.  One problem I had was he was filled with hate and going after criminals when your entire being is filled with hatred is almost vigilante.  That is no way to deal with the problem at hand.  Where was the law?  Were they not doing anything.?  He's basically taking the law into his own hands.When his friend Detective Chad Green is assigned to find out about all  the murders that are taking place, his path leads to  Crumb, main suspect.  Somehow, even though the evidence against him looks bad for him.  His friend finds it hard to believe that Crumb could actually commit murder.  Then the bomb drops,  Chad's wife has been kidnapped and Chad looks at his loyalty to Crumb is fading fast.  Does Crumb have it in him to kill or is there someone else out there that should be a suspect?   Has Crumb taken Chad's wife?  If so, will he kill her or will he be chasing down the real culprit to save her?  The book does have a lot of twists and turns and maybes.  After I got to reading it, it was a fairly good book.  It just seems like the every day book of murder and who dun it.

I was given a complimentary copy of A MURDEROUS MIND from the author, C.J. McCoy and Out Skirts Press  for my view of the book.

I would give this book 3 STARS.
