Product Description

By the author of A Quiet Belief in Angels, praised by Michael Connelly as “a beautiful and haunting book,” Saints of New York is a powerful new crime novel. The death of a young heroin dealer causes no great concern for NYPD Detective Frank Parrish—Danny Lange is just another casualty of the drug war. But when Danny’s teenage sister winds up dead, questions are raised that have no clear answers. As the homicides continue—and a disturbing pattern emerges—Frank tries desperately to make some sense of the deaths, while battling with his own demons.

Trying to live up to the reputation of his father, John—not only a legendary NYPD detective, but also one of the original “Saints of New York”—the men charged with the responsibility of ridding New York of the final vestiges of Mafia control in the 1980s—Parrish struggles to come to terms with the broken pieces of his own life. But, as the murders escalate, he must discover the truth behind them before there are further innocent victims

Dark and intense, Saints of New York is a novel of corruption and redemption, of the relentless persistence required to find the truth, and of one man’s search for meaning amidst the ghosts of his own conscience.
