About this title


Detective Lieutenant, Matt Stuart, third generation New York cop, is precinct head in Pigtown, an old wiseguy neighborhood where the name remains but the pig farms are gone in a forgotten section of Brooklyn. Which is where Beansy Rutolo is found inside a refrigerator with his brains blown out. Nobody cares about mob hits anymore, but Matt owes one to Beansy due to an ancient favor on Beansy's part to Matt's father. Matt's investigation of the hit on Beansy rattles the top brass in the Big Building, resulting in Matt taking chances with his career and his life. Pigtown is as stark as today's newspaper, as real as New York itself, and the best book that William Caunitz has ever written.


Nobody did police corruption as crisply and with such obvious delight as Caunitz. Just out in paperback, Pigtown is one of the very best thrillers by a fine writer who died in 1996. Many of the details in this story of high-level villainy at the NYPD will ring true because they come from an actual case, and Caunitz was smart enough to realize that he didn't have to gild these nasty lilies. Instead, he concentrated his energies on making Lt. Matthew Stuart as strong and accessible as ever as he traces the killer of a small-time mob figure right upstairs to the top of One Police Plaza.
