Hell City by Allen Shadow: “In ‘Hell City,’ New York is ground zero once again as the former NYPD homicide dick and his crack but colorful crew patrol a maddening world of clues that takes them through the grittiest precincts of the city, the back roads of America, the lawless regions of Pakistan, the faceless chat rooms of the Internet and the dark corridors of the military-intelligence complex — not to mention the whiskey-tinged environs of The Christmas, a raunchy dive bar in Hell’s Kitchen frequented by Jack and other oft-recovering alcoholic cops.” (September 2012)

Top Sky by Jacquie Cook & Robert Kammen: “When Annie Skye a successful Manhattan trial lawyer is asked to return to Wyoming and defend her nephew on death row, she reluctantly has to bring with her former Mafia hit man Jack Scarnetti who is remanded to her on parole. Back in Casper, Wyoming, where she conducts her own investigation using forensic evidence from the trial, Annie soon realizes her client, Lakota Sioux Indian Jerome Two Bulls, couldn’t have committed the murder of Cassandra Madison. As she and Jack Scarnetti seek to find the truth in all of this, one witness after another start turning up dead.” (October 2012)
