|General Note:|| First published in Great Britain in 2010 by Orien, an Hachette UK company.
|Summary, etc.:|| "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"-- Provided by publisher.

NYPD Homicide Detective Frank Parrish is wrestling with his partner's death, his father's police-department legacy, and foundering relationships with his kids. But between booze, a dazzling array of self-destructive defense mechanisms, and a nifty department-issued shrink, he has it all covered. When Frank is assigned the murders of petty criminal Danny Lange and his teenage sister, he's immediately certain the case isn't the usual petty-crime fallout. Rebecca Lange never fell into the traps that ensnared her brother. So why was she found half-naked and strangled in his apartment? A chance aside from one of Rebecca's friends leads Frank to four other murders similarly linked to child-welfare cases, and he's on a mission to redeem his life's mistakes by finding justice for these girls. Frank Parrish's pathos is familiar, but he's the sharp-minded, likable wreck genre fans love, and he's a great vehicle for investigative details. Discussion-worthy parallels between underworld and official predators should tempt book groups, and Ellory solidly plants his literary flare in a gritty foundation that hard-boiled fans of Lehane and Lippman will appreciate.
