Synopsis: This new page-turner from the author of Line of Sight is packed with great writing, complex characters, a shocker of an ending, and a dose of pure attitude.
Writing with the deft skill of Elmore Leonard and James Ellroy, but adding a hip, noirish twist all his own, Jack Kelly packs a punch in this new novel set in the deceptively quiet neighborhoods of 1950s Rochester, New York. Ike Van Savage's latest case starts out simply enough: a threatening husband and a beleaguered wife. But before he knows it, he's pulled into a serpentine mystery that involves the town's most notorious gangster, a dead heiress, and one too many "accidents." Mobtown seethes with undercurrents of passion, drips with moody detail, and brims over with proof that Jack Kelly deserves an honored place among writers of suspense and detective fiction.
About the Author: Jack Kelly is the author of four critically acclaimed novels: Apalachin, Protection, Mad Dog, and most recently, Line of Sight. His screenplay of Protection has been made into a motion picture with Stephen Baldwin and Peter Gallagher which will be released later this year (2001). He lives in the Hudson Valley region of New York State
