Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0892966041, Hardcover)

If you haven't yet made the acquaintance of New York Mayor Isaac Sidel, this latest entry in the series is a fine place to start. Sidel is an intellectual ex-cop and former police commissioner who roams the city alone, dressed in old clothes and armed with a Glock.

Previous Sidel stories available in paperback include Blue Eyes, Little Angel Street, and The Seventh Babe.
