Neptune Avenue

(The third book in the Detective Jack Leightner series)
A novel by

'If we took it all personally,' Brooklyn South homicide detective Jack Leightner tells his rookie NYPD partner, 'there's no way we could do the job.'

Very soon, though, that notion gets shot to hell, as the deeply principled cop hears about the murder of an old Russian friend on Neptune Avenue---and then is disturbed to find himself increasingly drawn to the man's stunning widow, Eugenia. She informs Jack of her husband's troubles with Semyon Balakutis, a local nightclub operator and extortionist. Meanwhile, a mysterious stranger in central Brooklyn is killing young women and posing them as suicides.

From the Russian emigré community of Brighton Beach to the racially charged neighborhood of Crown Heights, from the crimes of World War II to the harshness of his own father, Jack's latest cases plunge him deep into the roots of why men act in anger---and into the eternal mystery of love.

Gabriel Cohen stuns in this riveting third addition to the Brooklyn-set series.
