Born in Yonkers, NY on Feb. 3, 1940, Ed Dee grew up in the city's west side projects. After graduating from Sacred Heart H. S. he spent two years in the U.S. Army. In 1962, after several Teamster Union trucking jobs, he joined the NYPD. He spent nine years in uniform walking the streets of the South Bronx, while earning a BA at Fordham University. During the last eleven years he supervised detectives in the Organized Crime Control Bureau. Ed retired from the NYPD as a lieutenant lugging a suitcase full of stories he had to write. He left Fordham Law School to obtain a MFA in Creative Writing at Arizona State University. His master's thesis became his first novel. Although the horror and hilarity of his NYPD career are evident in his work, Ed focuses on the cops themselves; how the depressing grind of an impossible job infects and changes them, then spills over onto those they love. Ed has two daughters and four grandchildren. He lives in Delaware with his wife, Nancy who made the frying pan-to-fire leap of cop's wife to writer's wife.From AudioFile:
The star of this first-class production is the city of New York. Detectives Anthony Ryan and his partner, Joe Gregory, investigate a murder/robbery at JFK Airport. The pair moves around these mean streets like they own them. As the investigation takes them from the Upper East Side to the Village, up to Harlem, and over to Queens--Len Cariou's narration (and Stan Harrison's evocative transitional music) makes the concrete landscape come alive. Cariou excels at capturing metropolitan diversity, particularly the New York accent of Gregory (who calls his partner "pally") and the Irish accent of Inspector Declan O'Prey. Suspicion touches on everybody from the Mob to a Manhattan street gang to the IRA, and the Dee/Cariou combo keeps listeners on their toes. As top cop O'Prey says in the thickest Irish accent this side of Dublin--"Kudos, gentlemen, kudos." E.K.D. An AudioFile Earphones Award winner. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
