Havoc and Mayhem by Derrick A. Bonner is an urban fiction tale. It’s 1988 and Ronald Reagan is manning America’s helm. Rap music fills the streets and a brand new drug, crack, is causing serious problems in the street of New York City. Tommy Strong, AKA Havoc, is a Trouble Consultant who removes pimps, pushers, and punks from the streets for money. He loves his life and believes that nobody can touch him. Until the day his enemies band together to hunt him down. Left to look after his special needs sister, Havoc needs his best friend by his side to help him fight back and find out why he’s been targeted. Car chases, bloody fights, and shootouts ensue as Havoc and Mayhem hit the floor running and fighting to survive.

Havoc and Mayhem by Derrick A Bonner is hilarious, although a little violent at times but nothing too bad. It has a great plot, written in a descriptive and tight style. There is plenty of action at every turn and the story moves forward at a steady pace; there aren’t any dead-ends that lead nowhere, and everything takes us in a single-minded direction towards the finale. The characters are exceptionally well developed so that by the end we know all about them, who they are and what drives them. They are likable and easy to bond with, the kind of people you want in your corner! Great story, original and refreshing. I’d like to read more of Havoc and Mayhem in the future!
