About this title


"Newman really knows the territory."
WIlliam Caunitz
A millionaire art collector is hacked to death with a kitchen knife, his precioous paintings slashed to bits; a fat-cat neurosurgeon is slapped with a killer malpractice suit that could ruin his marriage, his practice, and his torrid affair with a cokehead. Brilliant detective Joe Dante, formerly of Midtown South, now assigned to the sixth precinct, is tracking down the killer, when an even more baffling murder forces him to question everything and everyone he knows....

About the Author:

Born in San Francisco, California, Christopher Newman wrote the first draft of his third published novel, Manana Man, while in residence in Cali, Colombia his senior year in college. At 27, he moved to New York City, working as a trim carpenter for five years in Manhattan before publishing his first Joe Dante novel, Mid-Town South, in 1985. When that title met with considerable commercial success, his publisher convinced him to turn his protagonist into a series character. Eight more Joe Dante novels followed, all making various national best seller lists. Mid-Town North, published in 1991, was nominated for an Edgar Allan Poe Award by the Mystery Writers of America. Chains of Command, left unfinished at the time of best-selling author William Caunitz' death in 1998, was completed by Mr. Newman at the estate's request. It was named a 1999 New York Times Notable Book of the Year.
