A Hamburger Christmas

A Hamburger Christmas, by J.T. Bishop, is the story of two detectives working to solve a string of robberies throughout high-class neighborhoods. Detectives Daniels and Remalla have their own plans for Christmas, one spent with his wife and the other mourning his late fiancé. Unfortunately, the robbers they have been searching for will cross paths with these two detectives on Christmas day.

The story begins with two teenage boys, Simon and Gary, robbing expensive homes. They are given their marks by a man named Egg, the neighborhood thief. The brothers began stealing after having extremely little provided by their mother. Gary looked up to Egg after his best friend Trey was murdered. Throughout the book, Simon is weary of Egg and worried that his brother is just being used to make him money.

Detectives Daniels and Remalla have been trying to solve a string of burglaries spanning 6 weeks. However, they have little to go on until Christmas morning. Remalla stays at his cousin Chico’s house for the holiday. After losing his fiancé in a car accident, he wants to get through this first set of holidays alone. The next mark on the boys’ list is a house that will be vacant for Christmas- Chico’s home. Gary and Simon come face to face with Detectives Remalla and Daniels in Chico’s house.

The writing style in this thrilling book is strong throughout. The characters are written so that there is a strong sense of self, each with their own characteristics, even in a short story like this one. The detectives have similar characteristics that are shown in the young boys. Remalla and Gary are connected through grief after they each lost a loved one. Daniels and Simon are both looking out for their brother/partner.

This novella had a good pace and little filler information. The characters are likable and relatable. A Hamburger Christmas, by J.T. Bishop, is full of action, has a strong central character, and has an excellent storyline. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys action, mystery, thrills, and memorable characters.
