When I began reading “Durty South Grind,” I didn’t know what to expect. As I began to dig into the novel, I was introduced to Larry Stith, a.k.a. Sparkle, who is just released from doing a long stint in prison. Sparkle is trying to walk the straight and narrow and stay away from the previous way of life that he was used to. But will the crime and violence calling him be too great for him to succeed on his walk to redemption?
Beverly Johnson is a newly appointed police chief in Atlanta. Beverly takes her new position seriously and will go to no bounds to protect what is rightfully hers. But with skeletons stirring in the closet that she cannot afford to have let out, Beverly struggles with loyalty, secrets, and her career. Will Beverly be able to juggle her career without her past being blown up in her face?
I had a hard time connecting with L.E. Newell's novel Durty South Grind. With over 300 hundred pages, it was struggle for me to finish. In my opinion, the storyline was all over the place, and it was hard to grasp what this book’s purpose was. I’m not sure if this was because of the jumping around or the fact that it was hard to focus on one character. I hope L.E. Newell's next novel will give his audience a little bit better connection with the characters and a better grasp on what his story is about.

I had to force myself to finish this book because I did not want towaste my money.This book was very confusing and hard to follow. A couple of the segments repeated,so I thought I had lost my place and was rereading certain chapters again. I Ido not recommend this!!
