Former Marine and former NYPD detective Mahoney first caught our attention with Detective First Grade, his tough and funny debut thriller about an unusually interesting cop named Brian McKenna. In that book, McKenna led the NYPD in a five-day war against a decidedly nasty bunch of terrorists -- using somewhat unorthodox methods which didn't please certain superiors. In his second outing, just reprinted in paperback, McKenna has been forced into an early retirement in Florida. But when another band of determined villains (from Peru this time) try to hold New York hostage, guess who gets the call to report back to work. Good, dirty fun.About the Author:
