Frank Clemons, an ex-cop turned private detective, faces a pair of perplexing cases on the mean streets of New York City.

The first case is simple. A wealthy man’s wife has grown distant, and he asks Frank Clemons, a private eye hardened by his past work on Atlanta’s homicide beat, to find out why. There are a number of simple reasons why a young woman might withdraw from her older husband, but the spurned spouse rejects them all. Her jewelry is disappearing, but he insists that she doesn’t have trouble with blackmail, drugs, or gambling. The answer must be more complex, and he begs Frank to find out what it is.

Meanwhile, an old woman familiar to Frank from his nights haunting Tenth Avenue has been murdered, and a gypsy priestess claims that she killed her. But Frank is unconvinced, and unearthing these women’s secrets will force him deep into the dark side of a city that he still cannot call home.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Frank Clemons, the Atlanta cop who followed his lover to New York and stayed on as a private eye even after they parted still haunts Manhattan’s gritty streets. This time he’s on two cases: days, he’s tracking a wealthy man’s wife as she visits other men; at night he’s puzzling out the murder of a gypsy crone on 10th Ave…Cook evokes New York’s pungent atmosphere, complete with homeless people and all-night grocery stores, and makes Frank’s profound loneliness palpable as he brings both cases—the nighttime one more convincingly—to satisfying conclusions.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Frank Clemens, still haunted by his daughter’s suicide, still a drink-the-night-away friend of the mysterious Farouk, continues on in the noir shadows of New York.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • “Chase’s narration highlights Clemons’ complexity; at times, he appears gregarious but in reality he’s lonely. To demonstrate these traits, Chase uses an effective mix of tones and inflection to emphasize key moments as well as a measured softness that captures Clemons’s desire for companionship.”
