A murderer is loose in Manhattan and he's making hotel guests his victims...
When the wives of two billionaire Texans are brutally murdered in New York's swanky Sutherland Hotel, Franklin and Felix Novak and Soraya Navarro need to move fast before the killer strikes again. Hoping to find a suspect, Felix and Soraya check in to the Sutherland, posing as wealthy lovebirds on vacation. Meanwhile Franklin looks into the shady dealings of the hotel's infamous owners, the Apples.
Is somebody trying to get vengeance on the Apples? Or are the Apple cousins, deranged Morris and slick Simon, fighting for power and using guests as ammunition? As Felix and Soraya close in on the killer, their relationship catches fire, while a corpse with a bullet in the belly throws suspicion on the least likely suspect.
Ethan Black author of Dead for Life A hip and gritty triumph. Dark, dangerous and cool. I want to see more of these characters soon.
Lauren Henderson, author of the Sam Jones series A beautifully written, hypnotically subtle tour through the hip underground of New York, with a cute guy in a cowboy hat to boot! I was very resentful of anything that came between me and finishing this book.
Jon Katz author of the Suburban Detective mystery series and The New Work of Dogs Alex Minter brilliantly redefines the New York mystery genre. Felix Novak and Soraya Navarro are a great new sleuthing pair, two hip, contemporary and complex kids whose stomping ground is the hottest real estate on the planet -- Manhattan. This is a terrific new contribution to mystery readers and lovers, wherever they live.
