A novel by

 
 
The first in the "beautifully written" Edgar-winning series featuring an NYPD detective working the mean streets of Manhattan's West Side (The Washington Post).

Detective Neil Hockaday, a son of Hell's Kitchen who grew up to join the NYPD, had a promising meeting scheduled with a snitch - until his informant turned up dead. Meanwhile, a prominent Harlem preacher with a lot of followers, and friends in high places, has been receiving death threats - and Hock's assigned to keep Father Love alive and find out who's after him.

But Hock's harrowing work life hits close to home when he discovers a dead body in his own bathtub and must untangle whether - and how - all these events are connected . . .

"A satisfying narrative . . . Adcock's picture of the Big Apple is not pretty, but it is gripping and effective." - Publishers Weekly
