Children of the Enemy by D.J. Swykert

Jude St. Onge is forced to go on the run after he steals a lot of drugs from Parson, a big drug lord in Detroit. This leads to Jude’s wife’s brutal murder and daughter’s kidnapping. He ends up getting some unexpected help from a convicted murder and a newspaper reporter, who in turn kidnap Parson’s two sons. The Detroit police force tries to solve the murder and kidnapping but they are always a step behind.

Drugs, Power, Sex, and Violence

I found the book cover disturbing and at times the violence gets too graphic for me, e.g. the torturing and killing of Jude’s wife. That aside it is a fast-paced thriller, with plenty of unexpected turns that keep you on the edge of your seat.
