Overview

At a pre-wedding party for his daughter Sarah, Moe Prager is approached by his ex-wife and former PI partner Carmella Melendez. It seems Carmella's estranged sister Alta has been murdered, but no one in New York City seems to care. Why? Alta, a FDNY EMT, and her partner had months earlier refused to give assistance to a dying man at a fancy downtown eatery. Moe decides to help Carmella as a means to distract himself from his own life-and-death struggle. Making headway on the case is no mean feat as no one, including Alta's partner Maya Watson, wants to cooperate. Moe chips away until he discovers a cancer roiling just below the surface, a cancer whose symptoms include bureaucratic greed, sexual harassment, and blackmail. But is any of it connected to Alta's brutal murder?

Razor-edged contemporary whodunits don't get much better than Shamus-winner Coleman's seventh Moe Prager mystery. --Publisher's Weekly, starred review Moe Prager's . . . first love will always be Brooklyn. Reed Farrel Coleman's latest book in a series heavily saturated with local color. Prager . . . travels the length and breadth of the city talking to cops, firemen, gangsters and restaurateurs in their picturesque natural habitats. For someone who reads people by the places they eat, drink and make merry, that's good enough to make Prager postpone his death until he solves this case. --New York Times Book Review
