A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE MYSTERY THRILLER!
Here is the book that launched journalist-turned-crime-novelist Jerry Oster's meteoric literary career and introduced his most unforgettable character, the sad-sack detective Jake Neuman.
When Neuman and his partner Bobby Redfield are assigned the murder of a small-time crook to take media pressure off the mayor, it looks a piece of cake for the precinct's two top homicide men. But soon their path through the underworld leads to the upper crusts of the arts and Big Apple society. As bodies pile up around them and clues lead nowhere, the pair realize that they are being opposed from inside their department and the only two people they can trust are themselves. If they're right, the killer may be one of their own colleagues!
