Chris Freeman's Joseph Soyinka is an intriguing and engaging lead with an irresistible combination of police and amateur detective. With plenty of layers to peel away in his character, this ex-police-detective-turned-cab-driver and single father definitely has room to grow, and New York City is the perfect backdrop for his gritty investigations.

Synopsis

Streetwise by Chris Freeman

Police detective Joseph Soyinka made many enemies fighting police corruption in Nigeria but he refused to be intimidated - until his wife was killed and his life destroyed by unknown forces. Now he lives with his young son in the anonymous safety of New York City. By day he drives a yellow cab. By night, he tries to forget about the past…

But when a vulnerable girl is killed and his colleague framed for her murder, Joseph finds that old instincts die hard indeed, and he's soon on the trail of a vicious killer…
