Action-packed and with an extremely plausible premise, this is Pinter's best book yet. As always, Henry's first-person viewpoint adds welcome touches of humor to what would otherwise be a grim scenario.
Working on a story with his mentor, Jack O'Donnell, would normally thrill reporter Henry Parker. But this time, the subject matter is too personal. The recent murder of Stephen Gaines, Henry's half-brother, and its aftermath have already taken a toll. Things don't get any easier when Henry and Jack get their first lead -- the discovery of a battered corpse floating in the East River.
The deceased was associated with the shell company fronting for a drug operation Stephen was part of. The body is a warning from the head of the organization, a shadowy figure called the Fury. Staying alive long enough to find Stephen's killer and stop the Fury's plans are Henry's biggest challenges. (MIRA, Dec., 384 pp., $7.99)
