Product Overview

A gritty, literate noir that provides a fascinating look at the seedy New York still lurking behind the city''s gleaming veneer, "Old Flame" is both a valentine to hardboiled fiction fans and a great introduction to the genre--Chelsea Cain, author of "Heartsick."

From the Publisher
Editors Note Former NYPD homicide detective Jackson Steeg is finding his retirement anything but peaceful when his ex-wife's new beau is beaten to death outside a trendy restaurant in a killing that may have links to corruption in the awarding of city construction contracts, an old friend is in debt to a vicious Israeli mobster, and a mob war is threatening to erupt. Original. 30,000 first printing.
Editors Note 1 Dark streets. Darker secrets. Jackson Steeg thought he'd finally put all that behind him. He was wrong. Jackson Steeg isn't an NYPD homicide cop anymore, not since the bullet he took to the lung. But Steeg's retirement is looking anything but relaxing. After months of death threats, his ex-wife's new flame is beaten to death outside a chichi restaurant in the Meatpacking District. When Steeg starts pulling on strings, he discovers that his old pals on the force are strangely reluctant to investigate the murder. Meanwhile, Steeg's Hell's Kitchen roots prove impossible to escape when a ne'er-do-well childhood friend finds himself deep in debt to a vicious mobster. Steeg's brother, Dave, wants to help, but the only language Dave knows is violence, and soon a mob war threatens to erupt. Now Steeg's got two factions of New York's nastiest characters aiming for his head. Worse, every thread keeps leading him exactly where he doesn't want to go: his own family.
