A Slightly Better World is a novel about two detectives who become partners in North Philadelphia’s tough 25th district. Enoch (Buck) Rogers, a young rookie from a privileged life in Philly’s prestigious Main Line, and Luciano (Luca) Borrelli, a seasoned, cigar-chomping goombah a la The Sopranos form this unlikely partnership. Buck’s life is less than ideal. He’s recently divorced, the relationship with his parents is, at best, strained, and his new lieutenant is always on his back. The two joys in his life are his job and his former partner-in-uniform and current lover, La-Teesha, a black policewoman who takes not only her job seriously, but also gourmet food and bedroom antics! As for Luca, he befriends and delights everyone he meets. His cell phone rings seemingly nonstop, and Buck can’t help but believe his new colleague knows virtually everyone in Philadelphia. I hope you enjoy the story and how these two “partners-in-crime” bond, and pledge to make this a slightly better world. Hurry, La-Teesha just opened a bottle of 2009 Chateau Malartic Lagraviere Bordeaux.
