Synopsis: Curbchek-Reload is a darker account of the streets as they were worked by Zach Fortier. It is Curbchek's darker and meaner cousin. These are the stories I did not include in Curbchek, the original book I wrote. They are edgy, dark and a much more accurate account of the street. Hang on for a reality check.
Review: Curbchek-Reload is definitely Curbchek's darker meaner cousin, but in some ways it is also the most "hopeful" of all three books (Curbchek, Street Creds, and Curbchek-Reload). Most assuredly it is for mature adults only. There is a thread of light you can see in Curbchek-Reload, showing that all Officer Fortier does on a daily basis is not for naught. Nothing is black or white/light or dark, but composed of millions of shades of gray when you're working to protect people from others (and themselves). I still love the writing style which makes you feel as if you are riding along on the beat. While I would never want to be a police officer, I have the utmost amount of respect for officers like Fortier who put themselves and their sanity on the line daily.
