THE TUFF HOUSE: The Rise and Fall of a Political Party by Dennis Rice is a work of fiction. The focal theme of this book is centered on curbing crime and illegal activities and apprehending criminals after thorough investigations done with sheer determination. It also contains forms of violence, unlawful possession of ammunition, and the use of hard drugs. 

This story starts with Raymond's sudden disappearance at Rebel Crossing. Cole, the department chief who was once in the CIA, took up the case, searched Raymond's house for any leads, and found a note that read, "Check out the Tuff House." What is this Tuff House? What connection does it have with Raymond's disappearance? This case went haywire as strangers asked for Raymond's whereabouts, and the Grande Party, an influential political party, began violent rallies. Cole needed more hands and contacted the Bureau and FBI agents, who were interested in the case too, and all hands were on deck with sheer determination. What is going on, and who is in charge of these activities? Will Raymond be found? Investigations are more intense now. What will John, Sally, Kenny, Cole, and others find, and what measures will they take to find evidence? Will the culprits be apprehended? Find out in this suspense-filled novel. 

I loved the characters named Cole, Sally, and Kenny. This trio worked together in every way possible to get the investigation running. Cole and Sally dig into finding every little piece of information. Cole and Sally had something lovely between them; a little romance lightened up the novel. Kenny was young and vibrant, always ready to do his best. They all made a great team. 

This book is well-detailed. I found the storyline to be compelling and very engaging. I enjoyed every page as the book was filled with action. I was eager to know what the outcome would be. The author did a great job with the characterization. I loved how each character was introduced to us with all their unique qualities. All characters were adequately developed, and each played a significant role in making a perfect and impeccable storyline. The book was easy to navigate as all events followed sequentially as the story progressed, leaving no loose ends. l disliked no parts.

However, I loved everything about the book. The book was perfectly edited, as I found no errors. I loved the way the author was able to capture the events in the book while ensuring that the book was captivating, and I also loved the inclusion of headings and the use of graphical tables in the form of a memo used for illustrations during their meetings. The author's writing was phenomenal, and I am rating this book 5 out of 5 stars. I recommend this book to lovers of crime thrillers and investigations.

Wow! Where did Raymond go? It seems to me that Cole s doing everything that he can, but we all know that that’ not always enough for everyone, is it?

I know the political world is a deadly one, however I love reading or watching anything related to that because there'll always be some new secret to learn.
