Crime reporter Mike Kincaid faces the biggest challenge in his career as he attempts to help solve a case that takes him from the glitz of one of New York City's most successful magazines to the smart set of New York State's Dutchess County

In this disappointing first mystery from TV screenwriter and author McCabe ( Bad News at Black Rock ), crime journalist Mike Kincaid relates how he was drawn into solving the murder of Stephen Lister, the playboy art director of the glossy New York City magazine. After Lister is found murdered in his apartment, along with large quantities of drugs and the makings of snuff films, Kincaid's friend Virginia Danbury, associate publisher of City , calls on him for moral support while the police are questioning her. Kincaid scoops the story; while following it, he becomes romantically involved with one of Lister's former girlfriends, and when the latter becomes a suspect, Kincaid is torn between his professional responsibilities and his feelings for her. He simultaneously solves his dilemma and the crime in an overly neat, unconvicing surprise ending. Kincaid's muted narration blunts the story's suspense and drains the resolution of excitement.

Nonfiction writer McCabe turns in a sterling performance with his first mystery. The narrator, investigative journalist Mike Kincaid, falls in love with the prime suspect in the murder of an ambitious New York photographer. Mike's police force buddy feeds him updates on the case but clams up after suspicion falls on Mike's new girlfriend, Ann. The tension Mike feels reveals itself in a quickened narrative pace that relieves the traditional plotting. A solid purchase for most libraries.
