Brooklyn River drownings aren't usually a pretty sight, but this corpse is obviously from the nicer side of town. The girl's father spared no expense or expertise - let alone time - in posting her missing and insisting that the NYPD find her ...The tragic death of Eva Cruz is the first scene in a play that leaves Detective Dave Moser wondering just who his real friends are. It seems that everyone but himself, one Internal Affairs lieutenant and an FBI new girl, is on the take to the tune of thousands or millions of dollars. And as Moser gets nearer and nearer to the centre of the puzzle of why Eva Cruz died, the higher the NYPD blue wall of silence gets.

His car is dead, his wife has left him, and Detective Dave Moser needs allthe friends he can get. Instead, he's about to take on a case that buries himin a morass of corruption and contract murder in the NYPD. Once again KennethAbel, author of the acclaimed novel Bait, hurtles us into the gritty,hair-raising world of cops and criminals as Moser finds himself alone, huntinga killer, torn between loyalty and honor, survival and...The BlueWall.
It's not just another floater when Moser and his partner investigate a gorgeousyoung woman, found dead in the water, missing both eyes. She looked like shecame from money with her fancy dental work. No needle tracks. A VIP missingpersons report leads Moser to a Park Avenue address and the girl's father, awealthy Guatemalan with a stone-faced bodyguard and a lot to hide. As Moserand his partner look for leads in the case, a series of unrelated homicidesfollow-- unrelated until Moser connects the lives of the victims. And when Lt.Tom Richter of the hated Internal Affairs Division tries to persuade him toinvestigate a fellow cop, it's clear that there's another correlation as well.Moser's on a downhill slide--straight into a federal probe of organized crimethat's directly connected to his case.
A wiseguy is singing like a canary, implicating Moser's friend as ringleader ofa gang of bent cops, connecting him to the murder that haunts Moser's days andnights. And Moser's the man in the middle: suspected as a possibleco-conspirator if he doesn't play along with IAD, loathed as a rat if he does.If he wants a future--in or out of the force--he must keep his owncounsel, watch his back, and follow a bloody, unmarked trail to its bitterend.
Stunning, taut, bristling with suspense, The Blue Wall races to anexplosive climax that will echo in memory long after the last page isturned.
