Review of Dead Ends by Don Easton
Well readers, again, Mr. Easton has taken us back into the sordid criminal world. This setting could be your town anywhere in the world. It happens to take place mainly in the British Columbia Lower Mainland.
Hero 'Jack Taggart' of the RCMP has to walk between the lines shall we say, in order to get his targets their due.
This is another illustration of the pathetic Judicial system and the mamby-pamby treatment of 'juveniles' that causes murder to be gotten away with so many times. Read this novel and you will understand why Taggart has to do what he has to do. He fictionally is the Jack Bauer of the police undercover operative here in this thriller.
In the real streets, life is cheap and if you don't believe it, Grab a copy and find out why!
I recommend the author's new Website if you want behind the scenes of Taggart's world. [...]

Easton's 'Dead Ends' is right on the money when detailing the antics of Defence Council and the judiciary. There is little accountability for either of these two professions. Easton tells a sordid tale which is unfortunately too true to life. The courts are too willing to accept information and/or stories provided by Defence Council and their clients without considering the veracity of the information given. The gangsters of today have no respect for anything or anyone as is detailed in reported crimes and on going current court cases. Because of Easton's experiences, he is able to tell it like it is. Another great book detailing the exploits of Jack Taggart!!!

The writing is riveting, visceral, and fast paced. I look forward to each new Jack Taggart mystery. I've met the author personally and he is very approachable and have great shared experiences.
don further develops the Jack taggart character while giving more insight into how outlaw gangs operate in BC. Very interesting weaving of fiction and nonfiction
