A fast-paced debut thriller "with great characters and hot action" says Stuart Woods--from an award-winning television writer and producer whose credits include the crime drama hits Law and Order and Columbo. When a corpse is discovered at the edge of the Hudson River, homicide detective Conor Bard is called to the scene. The victim turns out to be Walter Lawton, a hugely successful criminal defense attorney, with rumored ties to the Mafia. Among the prime suspects is Lawton's chic, sexy wife who stands to inherit two hundred million dollars and was having an affair with one of her husband's most dangerous clients.

Did Lawton's ruthless wife kill him with the help of her Mafioso lover? Or the elusive Albanian gunman? Or was it one of Lawton's bitter clients who murdered him? And how does Monica, the intriguing young Albanian woman Conor becomes involved with, fit into the picture? Conor Bard soon becomes enmeshed in a web of secrets, lies, and seduction.And his own life may be in jeopardy.

Set on the streets of New York City, this tantalizing blend of authentic fast-paced action, crossing plot-lines, and complex, multi-faceted characters marks the start of an exciting new mystery series.

It's clear that the author's background is in TV writing. Characters lack depth and plausibility. He relies on attempts at snappy dialogue. Each chapter is like a 45 second scene in a TV show.
