Restoration Heights (2019)
Wil Medearis
"Restoration Heights is many things: a thrilling whodunit, an unsentimental ode, and a nuanced portrait of a diverse cast of characters who live, breathe, play, and—most importantly—talk on the page with vitality. In Reddick, his painter protagonist, Wil Medearis has given us an unlikely Philip Marlowe of gentrifying Brooklyn. He navigates the city's labyrinthine power structures of class, race, and real estate with an artist's obsession for meaning-making. Restoration Heights is a contemporary story about a New York City so fresh you could leave a handprint in its concrete."
