Asher Levine is the top detective in the LAPD's elite Felony Squad. He's planning a romantic weekend with his ex-wife when he's called to investigate what he calls a double. Two young men have been shot to death and their bodies left in an alley.

Not bad enough he has to postpone his weekend, but one of the deceased is the offspring of a City Councilman who is a very visible and blustering critic of the LAPD.

Ash is the son of a Holocaust survivor and has served as a paratrooper in the Israeli Defense Forces. His training there comes in very handy in his present position. And he uses his hand-to-hand combat training to good effect.

The case becomes increasingly complicated as the investigation continues. More and more characters crawl out of the woodwork to muddy the waters. As time progresses, Ash's life is put in jeopardy.

Midnight Alley is the second in Miles Corwin's Ash Levine series. Corwin is a former crime writer at the Los Angeles Times and produces fine writing, I'm sure somewhat based on his previous career.

Midnight Alley is an exciting and hard hitting novel that reeks of suspense and action. A must-read. Its pages cannot be turned fast enough to satisfy readers. Please, Mr. Corwin, keep writing and keep Ash Levine fighting the good fight.
