    I am impressed with this novel Corktown written by Ty Hutchinson. I'm most impressed with the star Abby Kane. Abby Kane is a wise-cracking, tough as nails, and fiesty FBI agent who's called in to assist the Detroit PD with a string of murders that has plagued the town. The reason she's called in is because she's good at her job and the murderer may be copying an imprisoned serial killer dubbed The Doctor. Suffice it to say, these heinous murders are reason enough to get this nut off the streets I am impressed with this novel Corktown written by Ty Hutchinson. I'm most impressed with the star Abby Kane. Abby Kane is a wise-cracking, tough as nails, and fiesty FBI agent who's called in to assist the Detroit PD with a string of murders that has plagued the town. The reason she's called in is because she's good at her job and the murderer may be copying an imprisoned serial killer dubbed The Doctor. Suffice it to say, these heinous murders are reason enough to get this nut off the streets as soon as possible. Before long, Abby realizes that there's something that stinks of corruption with this case. The man who's sentenced for The Doctor's crimes tells her he isn't the guy and she believes him. Her brilliance leads her to believe that the copycat may actually be the true killer. She doesn't have much support with the Detroit PD, but that doesn't change Abby's mission to get the guy. What I liked most about this novel and attributes to my giving it a 4/5 star score is Abby. Corktown shifts points of view between Abby and other peripheral characters. The secondary characters never come to be as full or any less caricature throughout the novel. I don't mind this so much because I love the chapters where Abby is narrating and we get inside her head. She hails from Hong Kong and was the youngest woman to graduate from their police academy. A woman like that in such a male dominated society has got to have a pair of balls. Abby isn't all guts and no depth. She also suffers from the guilt of not being able to spend as much time as she would like with the two children her late husband left her with. The struggle between the call of duty and being plain old mom is relatable to many women who may read this novel. Another plus about this novel is that the plot really ties into the plight that is Detroit. A city that has primarily experienced a mass exodus as well as massive layoffs is the perfect backdrop for Corktown. The idea of corruption and scandal at the highest levels make this novel more believeable than had it just been placed in some no-name town. Corktown by Ty Hutchinson is definitely a fast read. It's leading lady Abby Kane is sure to excite readers. I know fans of Hutchinson will want to read this crime thriller. I look forward to seeing how Abby Kane develops in future novels.

    Ty Hutchinson is one of my favorite authors that not enough people know about! This book is sort of a continuation of a short story called The Perfect Plan. Someone is killing executives that work for the Big 3. FBI Agent Abby Kane has the task of coming to Detroit and solving the case. She sure has her hands full. The layers are many and deep to find out how and why these powerful people are ending up dead. Abby just can't let things be and digs deeper until she finds a handhold.

Why are the local police withholding information from the past? Leave it to the tenacious Abby Kane to find out why. Absolutely will continue with the Abby Kane series and the Darby Stansfield series.

    I think "I didn't mind chest bumping with my partner. Hopefully he would high-five my butt. I pushed his head down and introduced his warm mouth to my tatas. Lick it. Lick it good." perfectly sums up the writing in this book.

    FBI Agent Abby Kane and partner Trey "Wilky" Wilkinson head to Detroit to help the locals find and stop a serial killer known as "The Doctor". The murders are too similar to murders that had occurred some 15 years ago. The original Killer named Michael "Blade" Garrison has been locked up for the past 15 years. The local detectives are not happy the FBI has gotten involved. Abby and "Wilky" begin to make progress. The novel really embarks off into several story lines that tie up the reader.

The murders are too similar to murders that had occurred some 15 years ago. The original Killer named Michael "Blade" Garrison has been locked up for the past 15 years. The local detectives are not happy the FBI has gotten involved. Abby and "Wilky" begin to make progress. The novel really embarks off into several story lines that tie up the reader. What is with the hierarchy of the Detroit PD that they do not actually want these cases cleaned up ? . It seems from Lt. to Chief of Police, and even the Mayor do not want this investigation to get very involved. Abby in order to make progress on this case must overcome some terrible heartache, and the agony of her small children back at home in San Francisco with her Mother in law. Unable to really connect with her kids, Abby struggles with a wide scope of emotions. On the job and back home Abby struggles with painful crisis after painful crisis. I really enjoyed reading the book. The characters were very colorful and emotional as well. Some excellent dialog makes the characters very credible to be believed. This looks like a pretty good series to start reading into. Author TY Hutchinson has created a strong emotional and well liked protagonist. Abby Kane is not your typical FBI Agent. Her background is very unique. I'd highly recommend "Corktown" for any mystery thriller fan. The book packs a nice punch. Has a nicely deigned plot, and interesting characters to read. Please do yourself a favor and get in on this series with book 1 "Corktown". 5 stars out of a possible 5 stars.

    Ugh. I couldn't finish it. Too many strikes against this author for complete impossibility. I don't believe his character or his story. Just not a book I could take seriously enough to invest myself in. I didn't find it funny or interesting or compelling in anyway. I tried this book last year and I didn't like it then, I gave it another shot thanks to the help of audio, but didn't make it to the halfway point.

    The main character Abby Kane is the definition of a badass female cop. It's made obvious pretty early on that Agent Kane is a hot shot, the best there is, because of her career record with the Hong Kong police. However, nothing in that record is ever discussed in order for the reader to really understand why she has the reputation she has, that apparently even the mayor of Detroit would be aware of.

It's made obvious pretty early on that Agent Kane is a hot shot, the best there is, because of her career record with the Hong Kong police. However, nothing in that record is ever discussed in order for the reader to really understand why she has the reputation she has, that apparently even the mayor of Detroit would be aware of. As the story progresses, though she eventually figures out all the layers to the mystery - I had figured it out before she ever did, so I wasn't really impressed by her skills. Also, though her parents are briefly discussed - alluded to as a Chinese citizen and an Irishman, and her stint as a Hong Kong detective is mentioned - I fail to see how a presumably Chinese citizen could join the FBI and speak perfect English? If the answer was in the pages, it was muddled and glossed over. If you're taking creative license to allow an immigrant to join the FBI - an agency that mostly everyone (especially those of us who reads these kinds of book on the reg) should know only accepts American citizens into it's ranks - then explain why. Otherwise.... Kane's family situation was something different and specific, and it made me wonder if Hutchinson had some personal experience with a similar family dynamic. Women in mystery novels are either childless or are struggling to be a good mom and a good cop. That Kane became a single stepmom because of tragedy and was struggling with the realities of raising kids that aren't her own, struck a cord with me being a stepmother myself to kids who's mother is deadbeat. *clears throat* Side note: Never before has it been more obvious to me that a man was writing a lead female character. What description there was of Kane was needlessly sexual eight times out of ten. For instance, when Abby walks into an air conditioned police station she notes that her nipples become hard because "That's me, I'm a pointer." Yeah okay, there's not a woman alive who would put that on a list of things people should know about her. The plot was multi-layered and well thought out. Like an onion, the mystery just kept going the more pieces you peeled back. Part serial killer, part political and part crime procedural, it was very much paced like a roller coaster. When one climax came to a end, there was a moment of lull until a brand new clinching point came up. This happened all the way to the very last chapter. It did however lack description and depth within the world the author was creating - no colour, no imagery, just to the point and nothing more. Kane mentions halfway through the book that a month had gone by since she walked into the first crime scene. There were no markers of time, and that left me feeling a little lost. The book was strictly figuring out the mystery and not much in between. For people who like books this way, it would be a great read. For me, I need more story, more character development and more vibrancy, so I found it to be thin and that reflects in my rating. I got this book and the sequel for a deal on Kobo, so I'll be reading the second one and hoping for so more depth to the writing and little less nipple for Abby. But either way, it's a quick entertaining read.

    A real thrilling page turner. Murder, sex, intrigue and an easy to follow plot. The witty protagonist Abby Kane is smart, sarcastic and an action hero. Before it’s over the body count piles up amid corruption and conspiracy on the Corktown area streets of Detroit.

We often hear of cover-ups in crime and politics, but what happens when the two coincide. When innocent lives become the fallout of corruption, who really wins? Who is there to unveil the truth? In Cork Town by Ty Hutchinson, we are introduced to the darkness and depravity of a cover-up that seems to be rooted in the past. When a serial killer begins copycat killings in Detroit, Agent Abby Kane is dispatched with her partner, from their home office in California. Known for her ability to find the truth, she is nevertheless confused. Everyone in the precinct seems to shy away from talking about the first crime spree, the one that is being copied. When trying to find answers, she runs up against a solid front of denial. Finally allowed to visit with the original killer in prison, she only learns that he is guilty of murder and bank robbery, but even he insists that he didn’t do any cutting. Yet many of his victims were cut, including his girlfriend. Her visit only adds further questions, leading her back to some form of cover-up and a swift move to justice. But why? When the original perpetrator is found dead in his cell, and executives of the auto industry begin turning up dead, she is at her wits end. Like being in a pinball machine, she hits bumpers in every direction she turns, spinning her off into other tangents. Trying to keep her home life separate, she finds herself trying to deal with both, but with little success. Can she find the answer to the darkness that buries the truth before other lives are lost? Is the secret too entrenched to discover. As bodies continue to turn up, she races against the clock in an effort the stop the madness. Who can she trust when the house of cards begins to tumble and all avenues are a dead end? Hutchinson has brought us another hero, a short of stature, but long of brass female agent. She is fun and feisty, fiery and bold, but also just beginning to realize what family means. Endangering herself is not just about her any more, but what it would mean to her children. While a bit absurd, her continued texting in the middle of danger, is cute and just a little distracting. But she seemed unfazed and able to handle the small annoyances it brings. When she realizes she has fallen for her partner, the story heats up a bit but disappointment and heartache are only a few pages away. If you enjoy action, and a bit of savagery, you will enjoy Abby Kane, the agent in charge. Cork Town gives us background and a bit of history, along with a seriously disturbed killer. The red herrings are plenty, and the action is continual, keeping you deep in the pages. This would be a great book for a book club. Abby Kane is a new hero to be watching for. I look forward to her further exploits. This book was received free from the author. All opinions are my own based off my reading and understanding of the material.

    confession: i simply could not get into the much loved darby series. i tried, but the character pissed me off, so i gave up. i'm giving it another try. simply because i LOVED this book so much, i figure there has to be something about the darby series i was missing. really like the lead here, abby. kick-ass heroines are an easy like for me, though. and she's pretty kick-ass in terms of the environment of her job. but i admit, i wasn't as keen on the softer side. the idea that she feels guilt about confession: i simply could not get into the much loved darby series. i tried, but the character pissed me off, so i gave up. i'm giving it another try. simply because i LOVED this book so much, i figure there has to be something about the darby series i was missing. really like the lead here, abby. kick-ass heroines are an easy like for me, though. and she's pretty kick-ass in terms of the environment of her job. but i admit, i wasn't as keen on the softer side. the idea that she feels guilt about not spending time with her kids - admirable. but after awhile, the constant mentions of that guilt started to make ME feel guilty. will follow this series, absolutely. and after i plow through my current pile of books - i promise to give darby another chance. probably.

    Very interesting read. The main character was great. I liked that we didn't know everything about her past and what we did get came in very small pieces. And it sounds like she has a really interesting past that we may get more of in future books. Great writing style - easy to read. My only criticism would be that once the killer was found I felt like it took too long to tell the rest of the story. I guess I like my mysteries to be solved and then finish up quickly - who knew?

    Emily

    This is clearly a woman written from the point of view of a man. One dimensional, mostly because the author doesn't care to flesh out the character as more than an over-sexed lady. Her mothering is over the telephone and the fact that she slept with her partner in the front seat of a car during a stake out absurdly stupid. Trite, ridiculously male stereotyped leading lady.

    FBI agent made stupid errors (like not putting the security lock on her hotel room door? Give me a break). Too many plot contrivances used to make the plot work. Too much unnecessary detail on perverted sex scenes and gory murder scenes. Too bad, because I actually liked the protagonist.

Then I went to bed, but not to sleep. No, I was awake until I finished Corktown. Abby is great. She is feisty, she is honest with herself, she has a sense of humor, she's impatient with bureaucracy and she doesn't give up. I would have appreciated more of her "backstory", but as Corktown is the 1st in this series, I can only hope more will be told in the future books. The story really moves along. I don't remember ever thinking that "this" would be a good place to put the kindle down so I could put my head on the pillow.....I kept swiping and swiping and swiping. I finished Corktown in about 4 hours (atart-to-finish, but not counting potty breaks for me and the dog). I found Hutchinson's writing style to be eminently readable and relaxed... so much so, that I got his Darby Stansfield series on my kindle and have parked them on the first shelf of "favorites" so they will be the next books to be read.

    This is a book for those readers who want a straight-up-no-nonsense suspense thriller with a cold female lead. Corktown is a classic detective-works-the-case plot line with no strange creative surprises. However, I tend to fall into the category of reader that wants the weird twists and desires more character development. Corktown invests very little into the characters, but rather uses them as pieces to move around the mystery board. By the end, I didn't care if any of them got hurt or killed.

Really, you could plug in any name and it wouldn't matter much. I have a term for this style of book; I call them airplane reads. You can pick it up, read it and leave it. It does its job to entertain and hold interest, but so does an episode of CSI. The most disturbing part of this read was the love connection with the partner in the beginning. Ugh! It seriously was one of the worst forced attraction climaxing to a awkward love scene I've had to endure. It was mechanical and lacked chemistry. I would have preferred to have skipped it than be left with the image in my head. The book would have been much better if this whole disastrous attempt at adding tension was cut during editing. Even though I didn't care for the read, I still in all fairness gave it three stars because I believe the target audience will like the plot driven hunt for the obvious killer. What I did like? It was set in Detroit.

    Sorry but this isn't for me at all. Firstly, I learnt way more about sex toys, including butt plugs, than I really needed to but I also found the plot I'd read thus far to be a bit juvenile and farfetched. Why anyone with the surname Poole would name their son Paul is bonkers.

I was totally baffled as to how the 2 Birmingham detectives were involved in the murder investigation as the explanation they gave was just perplexing. I must've read it back 20 times, both before and after sleeping, to try and make sense of it but just couldn't. Then we're told of a serial killer who supposedly killed 30 or more yet he was arrested committing a bank heist with his girlfriend !! I think not. The main character, Abby, wasn't really properly introduced to us, either. I was a little confused as to where she was born, for example.....that all seemed too rushed at the beginning. We want to know about her origins at the start of a series at least. I only got to page 22 of it but I hadn't spotted any mistakes so kudos for that but the story itself is just terrible. The cover is a lovely one, however, and since I spotted no mistakes I gave it an additional star for these points.

A series of murder that have the same M.O. as murders that were done years ago, except that they had convicted someone for those, and he was serving his time in prison, so how could he be doing these new murders? Is it a copycat? This is not a who-done-it, as the reader finds out who is responsible for the murders early on, just the detectives don’t know who did it. This is a why, how and how far does it go? Work along with Abby and Trey as they try to find out the killer. Everyone turn they take seems to be shot down, previous files with no notes, no one willing to talk to them about the truth, if they are even still alive. How far does this go? As Abby was told, this is bigger than you can imagine. Short chapters make it an easy read, but you’ll want to keep turning the pages to get to the end. You’ll feel for Abby and every move she makes.

All victims were found cut and bled out. The perp was finally caught and the case solved. But then bodies start turning up again with the same pattern. While Agent Abby and her partner are trying to establish a connection between the three murders, two more bodies show up. Now Abby must find the copycat killer before more bodies pop up.

    At first I was a tad disappointed that this novel was not about Darby and his adventurous exploits. It did not take me very long to realize that Ty's writing style is alive and well in Corktown.

It is a different type of murder mystery in that we find out who the murderer is mid way through the novel. The story is about how Abby goes about deducing and solving the murders. The characters are fully developed and I was able to visualize their individual traits. I could almost feel them as the story unfolded. I highly recommend that you buy this, and for that matter, all of Ty Hutchinson's work - you will not be disappointed.

    Abby Kane is proving to be a worthy adversary to lawbreakers and serial killers. Hutchinson leads us on a page turning thriller. We meet a unique villain immersed in a deeply tangled of deception and naughtiness. A dash of romance, a bit of humorous crime fighting, and interesting characters, and shocking crimes make Corktown a gripping read. I can't wait for the next villain for Abby Kane to mow down.

    I’m not sure when or why I picked this up, but it was much grittier than I prefer, with lots of gratuitous sex and violence. By the time I realized that would be the norm, I had already gotten sucked into the plot, and so I finished reading with a lot of skimming over certain sections.

    By 'ok' I mean so bad it was good. Shockingly bad dialogue and internal monologues but the mystery was satisfying.

    Corktown (Abby Kane FBI Thriller book 1) by Ty Hutchinson. Abby Kane is going to be a part of my life for some time I am sure. This was an extremely good book. Plenty of tension sexual, professional, familial and more, but you'll have to buy the book to find out about that. I spent an hour and a half after I went to bed last night trying hard to shut the book and get some sleep. I just couldn't put it down, until my eyes kept shutting. The plot is exciting? Yes.

Interesting? Yes. Convoluted? No, but mixed up enough to keep you guessing. The characters were vulnerable, professional, crooked, loving, I don't know, just think about people you know. They were REAL. And the writing/imagery was really quite fascinating. What am I talking about? Have a think about this, for example: “… neighbourhood where everyone’s front yard looked like a public dumping ground. Cars and kitchen appliances were the most popular lawn decorations.”

By chapter three, the reader knows who the killer is and it's fun to watch Abby and company try to track him down.

    A Chinese woman whose hubby died was working for the FBI and sent away to help with a murder case. Her two kids lived with her mother in law while she was a way. These murders are descriptive and may not be comfortable reading these parts ( parts where the murders happened). Agent Abby Kane was starting to find more out but it seemed like some sort of cover up the more she investigated. Seems the murderer or murderers must have some sort of medical training maybe?

The reason behind the murders was an unusual reason I thought. But it seems lots more people were involved in it all at the end. Abby decides to finally forget about it all and go home to her family.
