About this title

Synopsis:

Fiction. From the Edgar-winning author of THE CORSICAN and BEULAH HILL comes A TIME GONE BY, the story of NYPD detective Jake Downing's investigation into the murder of one of the city's most prominent judges. After the execution of a man purported by Downing to be the killer, the now-chief detective Downing begins to have doubts about whether his investigation put the wrong man to death, leading to a renewed search for the truth. Evoking the classic detective novels of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett and the noir films of the postwar years, the Rocky Mountain News calls Heffernan's tale "beguiling ... His success in the reworking of a classic American art form is also obvious. Cain and Hammett would have approved."

From the Inside Flap:

"A sleekly constructed homage to those noir novels of yesteryear . . . [Heffernan's] feelings for the postwar period are palpable in his seductive descriptions of New York nightscapes and in the free-and-easy speech patterns of characters long gone but too vivid to be forgotten." --NEW YORK TIMES

"There's a nice noir feeling to the opening pages of A TIME GONE BY . . . Heffernan's novels are not so much about the murder but the effect the murder has on the people involved. That's not just good mystery writing. That's good writing, period." --DENVER POST

"Heffernan's tale is beguiling . . . His success in the reworking of a classic American art form is also obvious. Cain and Hammett would have approved." --ROCKY MOUNTAIN NEWS

"An aging police detective's regrets are examined in raw, moving detail in this superior crime drama . . . Edgar-winning Heffernan once again shows himself a craftsman of the hardboiled style, as well as a seamless handler of shifting viewpoints and emotions." --PUBLISHERS WEEKLY
