Brooklyn Three, Boyle, Thomas
2 Brooklyn Three Boyle, Thomas
Very Good. 
Hardcover. 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 1991 Viking. REMAINDER MARK at top page edge. Otherwise very clean; pages bright; binding tight. Light wear. 240 pages; map of Brooklyn. Language: English. Cover art by Adam Niklewicz. 'Detective Francis DeSales of the Brooklyn, NY, Violence Task Force is destined for an explosive encounter with a killer in Boyle's (Only the Dead Know Brooklyn) compelling new police procedural. DeSales lives in fast-lane Manhattan with ambitious, WASPy TV news reporter Megan Moore and, due to the racial war raging in his native Brooklyn, vehemently denies his Italian heritage. When what seems to be an assassination attempt on the black mayoral candidate takes the life of the campaign manager, a 1960s liberal, DeSales is called to the case. A videotaped montage of clips from '60s events and pornographic flicks sent to the mayoral candidate's house serves as a clue, and a strange, alienated young man who calls himself Bono Hendrix becomes the main suspect. ... [A] fast-paced, colorful and atmospheric novel, lent immediacy by its references to actual events.'--Publishers Weekly, 1991.
