Three years ago, a child’s death sent one innocent man to prison and blew open a vortex of corruption at the heart of Manhattan’s lucrative construction industry. Joe Cole was that innocent man. A former Buildings Department inspector, the ex-con now lives a broken life, cut off from his wife and daughter and from the city he loves. But a woman’s murder and the death of a young man rip open old wounds—plunging Joe and his former partner, a beautiful, hard-charging investigator, into the darkest corners of the city and into a desperate race to expose the secrets that help the powerful hide their crimes.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The novel is a murder mystery, make no mistake, but it also may be the most Manhattan-centric entertainment to come our way since Woody Allen switched his cameras to London.”

    Los Angeles Times

  • “This is a New York story, steeped in political intrigue, ripe with descriptions of the city and its history. The payoff will be particularly rewarding for readers interested in big machines, both the kind that move earth and those behind political parties.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Rozan spins a web of seemingly interconnected characters and events, then gradually untangles them…From the mean streets of Harlem to the chilly corridors of City Hall, Rozan vividly evokes New York City in all its sound and fury.”

    " I agree with other reviewers that this was a hard one to get into. Each chapter written from a different character's point of view and there were quite a few characters at first. Again, I like her character development and dialogue. "

    " I skimmed this one, I was bored by the politics. I guess that makes me sound like I am not interested in politics, but I am, maybe just not fictional politics! "

    " I really tried to like this book, but it doesn't hold a candle to her series. I really enjoy her series, but dislike her stand alone novels. "

    " I was really disapppointed with this. In fact I only read 20 pages before I gave up on it. I really like everything I've read from this author; her book "Absent Friends" was phenomenonal. But I just couldn't get into this one and life's too short to read boring books. "
