Thriller Crime | Suspense True Crime
The murder of Judge Hugo Jackson is out of Detective Simon
Ziele’s jurisdiction in more ways than one. It’s high
enough to command the attention of the notorious new police
commissioner, since Judge Jackson was presiding over the
sensationalist trial of Al Drayson. Drayson, an anarchist,
off a bomb at a Carnegie wedding, but instead of killing
millionaires, it killed passersby, including a child.
Furthermore, Simon’s assigned precinct on Manhattan’s west
side includes the gritty Tenderloin but not the tonier
Park, which is where the judge is found in his locked
with his throat slashed on the night before the jury is set
deliberate. But his widow insists on calling her husband’s
classmate criminologist Alistair Sinclair, who in turn
Ziele’s help. Together they must steer Sinclair’s unorthodox
methods past a police force that is so focused on rounding
Drayson’s supporters that they’ve all but rejected any other
Once again, Pintoff ’s combination of vital
and a fascinating case set amongst the sometimes brutal and
sometimes glittering history of turn-of-the-century New York
makes for totally compelling reading.
