About this title


Set in New York's Lower East Side in the 1970's, when it was fast becoming the heart of the cultural underground, jazz club owner Pablo Waitz, takes us on a journey in search of his partner's killer. If The Tin Angel offers a murder to be solved, a world of crime to be explored, it also offers a search for other truths. For both in murder and in life, Pablo discovers that the past can be as dangerous as the present.The drug/jazz world of New York's East Village has seldom been rendered more honestly or graphically than in this fine first mystery.-Publishers Weekly

About the Author:

Paul Pines grew up in Brooklyn around the corner from Ebbet?s Field. He moved to the Lower East Side of New York in 1961. In the early seventies he opened his own bar and jazz club on the Bowery, The Tin Palace, which served as the basis for his critically acclaimed novel, The Tin Angel (Morrow, 1983). A second novel, Redemption, set against the Guatamalan genocide of the 80?s, was published by Editions Rocher, 1997. His memoir, My Brother?s Madness, (Curbstone, 2007) explores the nature of delusion. He has published six books of poetry. Pines lives in Glens Falls, NY with his wife, Carol, and daughter, Charlotte, where he practices as a psychotherapist and hosts the Lake George Jazz Weekend.
