"A New Dawn Rising" by Michael Joseph is a well written crime thriller/mystery. It kept my interest from the blurb on. It was not only a riveting mystery, it was humorous in parts, revealed an interesting character with more human traits than your average cop or ex-cop. The man learned the necessary things about himself for his new beginning. It would be interesting to see how he does as he moves on. I hope the author has more plans for him.
