Excellent police drama!
Clarkson's sense for reality is exquisite. Even though the violence may not appeal to most people, I suspect sadly, it's closer to real life than not. If you are looking for a fast-paced police thriller with lots of action...this is the book for you! You won't be disappointed.
This book was a roller coaster ride from start to finish, and I loved every minute of it. It was so complex and gritty that I couldn't put it down. This is my first experience with John Clarkson - I found the book by accident, and I'm glad I did. It was thoroughly enjoyable and frightening at the same time. If this book is representative of his other work, then I can't wait to get my hands on his other novels. What a read!
Takes off like a rocket and never lets up. Police procedurals are my favorite, and this does not disappoint. Looking forward to more from this author.
The characters are tough, the bad guys are evil, and you will have fun. Got to get the rest of his books.
★★★★★ Tom Tischler
New Lots, Brooklyn, second to the last stop on the L train. Hell on earth for the people who have to live here. It's a twenty-four hour drug market with a warren of dark hallways and burnt out apartments ruled by a gang of killers. Not even the police set foot in this place. A war is raging here, a gang of Muslim Security people have moved in determined to clean out the complex from the vicious Blue-Tops a crack gang. People are being shot, beaten and the burned bodies begin to multiply rapidly even by Brooklyn standards. The call goes out for the one man who can stop it. NYPD Detective Loyd Shaw. A man who has nothing to lose and the only one brave enough to enter this place. This is an oldie from 1998, but it's nonstop action from front to rear.
One of the best books of the year!

Crackling Action from Master Storyteller John Clarkson
"Like all Clarkson novels Bronx Requiem is a gripping read with a complex, compelling story that hooks you quickly. The characters are finely drawn, hard edged and action oriented. Clarkson lyrically paints the rough and tumble streets of Brooklyn and Manhattan like Willa Cather describes Nebraska; the setting is a central character, alive and teeming and central to the plot." – Dermott R.
Another wonderful Beck thriller
"What a humane, enlightening, hard hitting, funny, satisfying book! There is a truly ensemble cast of wonderfully observed outer borough characters, surrounding the brilliant and softhearted James Beck, wrongfully convicted ex-con. The WOMEN are at center stage here! I loved that." – Emily M.
An excellent follow up to the author’s first Beck novel
"This is the second book I've read by Clarkson. The first was his first Beck book which I read pretty much non-stop. I did the same with this one." – Robert J.
You’ll Stay Up All Night Reading
"This crime/thriller, the second in what I hope will be a long series, featuring James Beck, is not only fast paced, colorful, intelligent but possesses a big, very big, heart." – Stephen K.
Bronx Cheer…for real!

"Love this guy from the start. I would read anything he writes with mucho pleasure." – Rodney Dale U.
"The publication event of the year for thriller fans is the re-release of John Clarkson's fantastic "AND JUSTICE FOR ONE." It is, hands down, one of the best "vigilante justice" thrillers ever written." – Robert B.
JOHN CLARKSON IS AT THE TOP WRITING GREAT THRILLERS
"I had been waiting for Jack Devlin novels to be issued in Kindle eBook format, for years. So, I was delighted to see that And Justice for One is now available. I got it and read it in a day. … I strongly recommend all his books." – Alfonso
Highly Recommended, First To Me, and Now By Me

Jack Devlin is here to drink whiskey, bed beautiful women, and kick butt, and he's almost out of whiskey ...
"Great to see this early 90s thriller back in print -- it has achieved "classic" status among fans of crime novels and vigilante fiction, and with good reason." – Mr. Strawberry
Great action novel
"I purchased this book in 1995 in a drugstore. It is the best action novel I have ever read! I have looked in vain for another action novel of the same caliber for years. I have now read this book 3 times over the last few years and I never grow tired of it." – jazzjames
"Could not put down. Reminds me of Stephen Hunter s early work with Earl Swagger and Bobby Swagger. True revenge novel." – John D.
One Man’s Law is a great book!
"Author John Clarkson sets his tale in a Hawaii unknown to most readers. Far from the beaches of Waikiki, the plush hotels, and the tourist attractions, is a different Hawaii, one of poverty, resentment, and violence. As a long-time resident, I wondered if an outsider would be able to describe this “other side of paradise.” Clarkson has more than succeeded, capturing perfectly the feel of the place and the persona of its inhabitants." – Richard M
Like Graham Greene’s writings on Mexico
"Hawaii may be the ultimate tourist destiny. Clarkson’s One Man’s Law set in Hawaii, like Graham Greene’s writings on Mexico, reads nothing like a tourist brochure. … There are beaches and sunsets, and hot pools, of course, but even these places appear out of reach for the tourist, hidden, unknown, off road, secret, where tourists never go. I would highly recommend a visit to Clarkson’s Hawaii." - jgb
EVERY PAGE THRILLING AND EXCITING
"If you like your main character rough and ready for anything (but a gentleman), believe me this book is for you! Once I started it, I simply could not put it down!! I read all afternoon and evening to get to the amazing ending." – Cherrie B.
