A high powered Washington attorney learns there are some problems he can’t solve in court. Dan Balor buys an apartment building in the heart of the city, hoping to create low income housing for good families. Instead he finds the building occupied by squatters: drug dealers, winos, hookers and professional criminals intent on staying in place.

Police and private investigators are unable to empty the building for use by paying residents. No one seems willing or able to take on this challenge until Balor meets an intense young man dressed in black named Hannibal Jones. He calls himself a troubleshooter, but he finds more trouble in Southeast Washington than he expected. The people holding crack pipes are backed up by people holding guns, and Hannibal soon finds himself up against a local crime boss and his powerful, mob connected father.

  • Very occasionally, when I finish a book which is so good that it leaves me speechless, my reaction is a sharply indrawn breath, and a whispered ..."Oh ... my ... God!" That is the reaction I had at the end of this book. For one thing, Mr. Camacho is a stellar story teller. He grabs you in the first chapter, and keeps tight hold of you, never letting your attention wander until the very last word. He is a master of his language, too, with a well paced straightforward writing style that has few literary flourishes, but is never *ever boring or awkward. He can move gracefully and completely between fast paced action scenes, introspection on the part of his main characters, romantic encounters and humor. While I have absolutely no first hand experience with fighting of any kind, and know little about Martial arts, there is a fight scene near the end of the book that is one of the 2 best I've ever read. the other one was in Frank Herbert's Dune. But, after I read this scene and let out my held breath and unclenched my hands, my immediate thought was that in order to write a fight scene *that* well, the author either studied a *lot* about the subject ...or should just have his entire body registered as a lethal weapon!

    The characters in this book are absolutely delightful, and the hero is ...well, a hero in the best sense of the word. He can't do anything and everything (although he comes pretty close), and he isn't the most gorgeous man in the world (maybe 3rd or so). He's very, very human, and that makes him believable, even when he is raising havoc and destroying opposition right and left ...with both fists and both feet. He worries. He doubts. He gets tired and angry and frustrated ...but his attitude to life is positive, and he really does care about people, and they end up caring about him, as well.

    The location of this book is in the Washington, DC area, specifically in Anacostia. though I've never been in that neighborhood, it was painted in such a lifelike and sympathetic way that it was as real to me as the neighborhoods in which I've lived.

    This book is a prequel to an already existing series, and in writing it after some of the other books were written, the author had a few advantages. He and his main characters were well acquainted, so the book reads almost like a memoir rather than an introduction. He also knew where the story is headed, and fit the prequel into his time line and action line beautifully. In short, this is a great book by an awesome author!

  • After a stint in the Policeman, followed by a few years in the Secret Service, Hannibal has lot's of skills. Unfortunately those do not make him a great PI, he's no Easy Rawlins but he does has loads of compassion and the willingness to stick out even the toughest jobs. His apartment, has burnt to the ground along with all his contacts and case files. Completing a current assignment, leads him to a lawyer. A lawyer who has a building in a bad aria of Anacosta, filled with squatters and with no paying tenants. Sounds almost easy until you realize the entire complex is a drug den, shooting gallery and a place for prostitutes to ply there trade. In control of it presently is a young thug drug lord wannabe Salvatore, Sal (Sally to his friends although he doesn't appear to have any ), he is the son of a successful organized crime boss one Anthony "Tony" Ronzini, Mr. Ronzoni to well pretty much everyone. Well Sally is not real bright, but he is obstinent and likes things as they are . He is opposed to change, change/effecting him, especially if he thinks something is being taken from him. So you can see where this goes and it does including a love interest. It a well written story and an pretty enjoyable read.

  • I really liked this book. Highly recommended. The author certainly knows how to write well, with good plot, realistic characters, accurate dialog, vivid settings. I thought it was going to be another one of those ordinary action/adventure books, but it was much better than that. Author Camacho has great powers of description.

    After all, how can you not love a character whose priority is Stockholm Roast (Gevalia?) coffee, freshly brewed?

    The female protagonist was not so well delineated as the male characters. For a smart lawyer, she did some not so smart things--shopping, cooking, very domestic things--and showing up unexpectedly when men needed to concentrate on their business. Her character could have been written better.

    The entire plumbing for several sinks, tubs, etc? The whole building brought up to code? In just a short time? Really? I don't think so. If you're a homeowner, you know how long it can take to get just one sink unplugged, refitted, and working properly....

    There was a refreshing dearth of errors. The last several books I've read have been rife with errors--spelling, grammar, homonyms, continuity gaps. There were a few typos, but that's to be expected. BYW, it's "arc" not "ark". Thank you.

    Given Hannibal's extensive background in the military, law enforcement, and the feds, I was surprised that it took so long for the protagonists to discern the bad apple in their midst, but nobody's perfect, I guess.

    Now, if you will excuse me, I really must go back to the search function and find the next Hannibal Jones book for my reading pleasure.

  • I am one of those people who believe everyone has a story that deserves to be told. I also believe few writers have to ability to combine believable dialogue, an engaging plot, carried along with realistic action. Camacho has met all three of these objectives with style. If you can put a picture into the readers mind of action be it soft everyday movements or violent dominating terror in to a scene that forces the reader to live the scene, you have done your job well. Camacho has you leaning into and away from every punch. Well done sir , well done.
