MURDER IN ALPHABET CITY
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Procedural
Harris' Manhattan series continues with this expertly crafted mystery. Detective Jane Bauer investigates a suspicious
Jane and partner Gordon Defino search for clues in his bizarre death, but the apartment's super remains secretive and uncooperative, and the investigation suggests a connection to Anderson's former social worker as well as a nearby Chinese laundry.
Harris' characters are gritty and realistic, especially Jane, who remains conflicted in her long-standing relationship with a superior as she becomes involved in the case. This author draws readers into this top-notch novel with a mystery that's as compelling as the relationships between the players. In the subgenre of police procedurals, this is one of the very best.
