About this title


The brutal shotgun murders of a Brooklyn candy-store owner and a New York City police lieutenant are the first in a series of killings that challenges--and haunts--investigating officer Lt. Tony Scanlon

From the Publisher:

Brooklyn. Early June. A man strolls into a candy store, pulls out a sawed-off shotgun, and blows away two people: owner Yetta Zimmerman and her customer, NYPD Lt. Joe Gallagher. Suddenly it is a very hot summer for Detective Lt. Tony Scanlon. For this is just the first in a series of brutal, inexplicable hits that lead Scanlon on a journey into the nightmare universe that cops and criminals cohabit . . . and deep into the private tragedies of his own life . . . then deeper still into his other life, the job, where he uncovers a frightening hidden world riddled with suspects in blue. But it all begins with the opening double murder and a moment of shock when Scanlon opens that dead lieutenant's locker . . . .

"A power-punching police procedural thriller . . . combines Lawrence Sanders-style crime with Joseph Wambaugh's insight into police life."--Publisher's Weekly.

"His knowledge of life inside an urban police force is extraordinary, and his detailed word-pictures of ballistics tests, fingerprint techniques and department stag parties make this arcane blue world come alive."-- The New York Times Book Review
