Award-winning author Jerome Charyn has written about 50 books, so it’s an understatement to say he’s definitely got this writing thing down. In fact, he’s been called one of the most important writers in American literature. Under the Eye of God is the latest in his long-running Isaac Sidel series.

After a thirteen year hiatus, author Jerome Charyn has brought back his popular NY detective, Isaac Seidel. In 1974, readers were introduced to Isaac in the first Isaac Sidel mystery novel, Blue Eyes. Over the span of ten novels from 1974 to 1999, Isaac's career has progressed from cop to detective to police commissioner to mayor to his run for the White House in the 1999 novel, Citizen Sidel. Now in the eleventh novel, Under The Eye Of God, the series picks up with Isaac winning the Vice-President of the United States in the 1988 election with his running mate, President-elect J. Michael Storm. Storm doesn't like being overshadowed by Isaac, so he sends him off to Texas on a speaking tour, and in true Sidel fashion chaos ensues.

Under The Eye of God is a fast-paced intriguing thriller full of corruption, sex scandals, politics and murder that engages the reader to keep turning the page. Written in the third person narrative, author Jerome Charyn weaves a gritty political-crime thriller that once again draws Isaac Sidel fans back in with his latest misadventures. Issac "The Big Guy with the Glock" travels from New York to Texas and finds himself in another round of dangerous misadventures with a personal astrologer tagging along.

With a large quirky cast of characters; witty dialogue and interactions; and a lightning quick storyline that has so may twists and turns that gives the reader whiplash, Under The Eye Of God is an action packed thriller that has a little bit of everything to satisfy the diehard Isaac Sidel fan.

Even though this novel is part of a series, it can also stand alone, but I would encourage readers to read the full series so that they can get the full essence of Isaac Sidel, his illustrious career progressions, and his no-nonsense Bronx style adventures.

Isaac Sidel is too popular to be America's vice president. Once the New York Police Department commissioner, he became the most beloved mayor in the city?s history?famous for his refusal to surrender his Glock, and for his habit of disappearing for months at a time to fight crime at street level. So when baseball czar J. Michael Storm asks Sidel to join him on the election?s Democratic ticket, the two wild men romp to an unprecedented landslide. But as the president-elect?s mandate goes off the rails?threatened by corruption, sex, and God knows what else?he tires of being overshadowed by Sidel, and dispatches him to a place from which tough politicians seldom return: Texas.… (more)
