9781503952225: The Big Fear (Hollow City Series)

It’s August in New York, and the steaming garbage littering the streets isn’t the only thing that stinks.

Civilian investigator Leonard Mitchell can keep his job as the new head of the Department to Investigate Misconduct and Corruption only by successfully prosecuting veteran cop Ralph Mulino.

Mulino shot an armed man on a dark night; he didn’t know the man was a fellow cop. Now, to keep his badge and his freedom, he has to make his case to the investigator. But the gun Mulino saw in his victim’s hand has disappeared.

As Mitchell digs deeper into Mulino’s claim, it becomes clear that the “misconduct and corruption” infecting New York City go far beyond the actions of one allegedly dirty cop. Murder and sabotage force Mulino and Mitchell into an uneasy partnership to uncover the truth and protect the city they are both sworn to serve.

Assuming, of course, they can stay alive...

About the Author:

Andrew Case is a seasoned playwright and author of the stage plays The Electric Century, Pacific, The Rant, and many others. He has been a member of the New American Writers Group at Primary Stages, a participating playwright at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre Center, and a member of the PEN America Center.

For nearly a decade, he served as an investigator, spokesman, and policy director at the Civilian Complaint Review Board, which investigates allegations of misconduct against New York City Police Department officers. His scholarship on police oversight has appeared in the Columbia Human Rights Law Review.

Andrew lives in Flatbush, Brooklyn, with his wife, Claudia, and their two children. The Big Fear is his first novel.

From Publishers Weekly:

New York City—not a recently sanitized Big Apple, but a “fresh, darker, looser city” currently on its way back under different management—plays a leading role in playwright Case’s first novel, a hard-punching police procedural. Case draws on his experience as an investigator and policy director of New York’s Civilian Complaint Review Board, which is charged with probing alleged police misconduct, for his protagonist, Leonard Mitchell, who serves as the acting head of the city’s Department to Investigate Misconduct and Corruption. When Det. Ralph Mulino, an “elderly cop” at 53, arrives at a crime scene aboard an anchored cargo ship, he winds up shooting an armed man, who turns out to be a fellow police officer. Leonard, who looks into the incident, soon finds himself pursued by powerful forces out to cover up the truth. Finely tuned city backdrops and sharply realized psychological portraiture make this a standout among Serpico-type crime thrillers. Starred Review
