This "dead perfect" noir-inflected murder mystery carries readers from New York City's most elite precincts to its dirtiest gutters (Robert B. Parker). Two years ago, writer Terry Orr lost his wife and infant son when a lunatic pushed them into the path of a subway train. Dissatisfied with the police response, he's been looking for the killer himself ever since. Somewhere along the way, while raising his precocious daughter and continuing his search, he also becomes a legitimate private eye. First, Terry encounters the brutal murder of a livery cab driver, which he's determined to solve. Then, he's drawn into the world of high art and ruthless ambition after a SoHo gallery is destroyed by a bomb blast. And when the two cases collide, Terry might be fatally out of his depth . . . Wall Street Journal writer Jim Fusilli exploded onto the mystery scene with this debut novel hailed as "a gorgeous nightmare" (The New York Times Book Review). Closing Time is the 1st book in the Terry Orr Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
