Eddie Flemming is Manhattan's best—and most famous— detective, having built his image through an unholy alliance with the tabloid media. But the seen-it-all cop knows that publicity can cut both ways....
Jordy Warsaw is an arson investigator who hates it when showboaters like Eddie try to help him with his job. But when two bodies found at a fire scene turn out to be victims of a double homicide, Warsaw and Flemming have to work the case together.
Now they're hot on the trail of the killers—a pair of media- savvy psychos who, inspired by a stolen video camera and the popularity of "reality" television, realize there's profit to be won from their brutal acts.
BUT WHEN 15 MINUTES OF CRIME REAPS 15 MINUTES OF FAME, THE PUNISHMENT IS PERMANENT.
"In the future everyone will be famous for fifteen minutes."-Andy Warhol
Take two mobsters looking to make a name for themselves in the land of golden opportunity, add the NYPD's most dedicated investigator, and toss in a member of the tabloid paparazzi who'll do anything for a story and you have this electrifying, timely, and wildly original new thriller from John Herzfeld, author of the cult hit Two Days in the Valley.
Already generating great buzz, Fifteen Minutes is going to be this fall's must-see film-and a must-read book for fans of Court TV, pop culture, Pulp Fiction, Mob movies, and incendiary action with an edge.
