Ex-NYPD cop Filomena Buscarsela—the irrepressible urban crime fighter of 23 Shades of Black and Soft Money—is back. When Filomena discovers that a high-tech Long Island factory is spewing poisons into the water supply, she’s sure that the contaminator is none other than her nemesis, a cutthroat industrial polluter. Armed only with an ax to grind, the gutsy Filomena knows she’ll have to play dirty to clean up the neighborhood. Her search for justice introduces her to the unfamiliar scent of privilege and immerses her in the all-too-familiar stench of political corruption and personal greed. Once again, Filomena’s nose for trouble has drawn her into a case that’s more than a little hazardous to her health. Set in 1980s New York, this third installment in the series sees the tough-talking, street-smart Latina juggling the dangers of the investigation with the demands of her adorable three-year-old daughter and the delights of a surprising new romance.

About the Author:

Kenneth Wishnia is an associate professor of English at Suffolk Community College and the author of the Filomena Buscarsela Mystery series, the first of which was nominated for both the Edgar and the Anthony Awards, and made the Booklist “Best First Mystery” list. He is also the author five other novels, including The Fifth Servant and Red House. Reed Farrel Coleman is an adjunct professor at Hofstra University and the former executive vice president of Mystery Writers of America. He has published 14 novels, including seven books in the Moe Prager series. They both live on Long Island.

From Publishers Weekly:

Fil Buscarsela can smell a rat as far away as Long Island from her Manhattan apartment. The Ecuadoran ex-NYPD cop with a fiery temper and a mouth to match has been coughing up blood, and it isn't just from being a former heavy smoker. Her mortal enemy, Samuel Morse, the CEO of a huge technology empire, locked her in a room with enough methyl isocyanate "to take out a city of a hundred thousand" several years before, resulting in a recent lung cancer diagnosis. Thirsty for revenge, Fil takes her young daughter and heads out to her sister-in-law's home in the highly toxic Long Island city of Minoa, so she can get a little closer to her would-be assassin. A bawdy Chinese chemist helps her uncover one dangerous secret after another connecting Morse to toxic dumping, fraud, corrupt local politics and even murder. Getting people to substantiate her findings isn't exactly easy, however, because Morse has provided jobs for the entire town he's poisoned. Worse yet, he's on to Fil's plan and has some vengeful feelings of his own. With his third book in this promising series, Wishnia shatters more hopes than glass, weighing down his environmental mystery with contrived dialogue that only aspires to the gritty wit of Elmore Leonard. A disappointing ending is tied up more neatly than a professionally wrapped present. Agent, Nancy K. Yost. (June) FYI: The Glass Factory is in production as an HBO television series, with Spike Lee producing and directing.
