The Shooting Gallery

(The second book in the Detective Yablonsky series)
A novel by

In Joseph Trigoboff's debut novel The Bone Orchard, the world was introduced to Detective Alvin Yablonsky and the accolades were unanimous. The New York Times Book Review chose The Bone Orchard as one of the notable crime novels of the year, and the author was chosen for the "Discover Great New Writers Program." Now here is The Shooting Gallery, Joseph Trigoboff's long awaited follow up. When Detective Yablonsky is called upon to investigate the murder of a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, he is drawn into the seedy underbelly of Manhattan's elite world of the rich and famous. The gripping climax takes place in the heart of the East Village, where Starbucks and drug-infested "shooting galleries" sit side by side. Lean, taut, and gripping at every turn, The Shooting Gallery is a return to form for one of America's premiere voices in mystery.(6 1/4 x 9 1/4, 320 pages) Joseph Trigoboff is also the author of The Bone Orchard, and the novel Abu. Born and raised in East New York, he now makes his home with his family in New York City.

Praise for this book

"This book smells like New York! Trigoboff has delivered more than a thriller, more than a procedural, a work of fiction that on every page drips with the life-blood of a cop." - Kinky Friedman

"THE SHOOTING GALLERY is not a book for naptime reading. Trigoboff never gives you a dull moment. And the background is as intriguing as the plot. Hope to see it on the bestseller lists." - Tony Hillerman

"Joseph Trigoboff knows what he's talking about. In THE SHOOTING GALLERY, he guides us, like a clear-eyed combination of Jimmy Breslin and William Burroughs, though the ripely urban landscape where crooked judges, wised-up journalists, hypocritical politicians and weary cops define the reality the rest of us, whether we know it or not, have to live with. Trigoboff's ear is pitch perfect, and his heart is where it should be." - Peter Straub
