El Bronx

(1997)
(The ninth book in the Secret Isaac series)
A novel by

 
New York's children wage war on the city's rich, with Sidel as the referee

In his years serving the people of New York, Isaac Sidel has often rescued the city from oblivion, but never has he faced anything as dangerous as the current baseball strike. The South Bronx, a wasteland of drugs, murder, and urban blight, is kept from sliding into utter chaos by Yankee Stadium's steady stream of tourists. Every week that the strike continues and the fans stay away, the Bronx slips closer to the edge.

As the crime rate spikes, a lone bright spot remains. Alyosha, a mysterious twelve-year-old graffiti artist, paints dramatic murals to commemorate the dead. When Alyosha befriends the daughter of the lawyer representing the player's union, Sidel sees a possible solution to the Bronx's woes. But there is too much money in baseball for the strike to be settled peacefully. Before the season starts, more blood will stain the sidewalks of El Bronx.
