This is a brilliantly done book. The city is the main character. The author of the story is the city paper The World. There are many characters in the book. They either work at the paper or are news items in the paper. Pete Hamill does an outstanding job of opening the book with a double murder of a New York socialite and her secretary. We meet many different people and then the book closes when the murder is solved. This book is so well done I want to read more of Pete Hamill’s work.
