Queens, New York—the most diverse place on earth. Native son Ted Malloy knows these streets like the back of his hand. Ted, a high-powered Manhattan lawyer who has fallen from grace, has found himself back on his home turf, scraping by as a foreclosure profiteer. It's a grubby business, but a safe one - until Ted's case sourcer, a mostly-reformed small-time conman named Richie Rubiano, ends up murdered shortly after tipping Ted off to an improbably lucrative lead. With Richie's widow on his back and shadows of the past popping up at every turn, Ted realizes he's gotten himself embroiled in a murder investigation, one that will plunge him into a maelstrom of ruthless developers, mobsters, and corrupt politicians - but will also bring him an unlikely new partner, the feisty red-haired activist, Kenzie.

First in a new series.

[...] Razor-edged prose, sharply defined characters, and a fast-paced plot boost this noir-wrought drama. Fans of Raymond Chandler and classic gangster films will be rewarded. -- Publisher's Weekly
