Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Great crime reporters like Jimmy Breslin and Nick Pileggi raved about this very strong thriller when it first came out; now you can share their delight with the paperback version. Tyre takes the old-fashioned newsroom setting and turns it on its head, giving us in crime reporter Kate Murray the kind of feisty character another Kate--Hepburn--could have played to perfection. Murray is relentless in her pursuit of a story but tinged with sadness about her lost love, a drunk and disgraced police detective named John Finn. Both sides of her life play an important part in this story about corruption and redemption. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
A cop waging a losing battle with the bottle and his colleagues who, day by day, are looking dirtier through his alcoholic haze, and a former newspaper reporter turned TV face are the main characters in Peg Tyre's novel. This well-written work will give you an up-close look at cop think, TV nonsense, boozing and drugs, not to mention a woman's struggle between career and heart. Read this, for the grubby details of life in a cops' world, a peek at what passes for journalism on TV, or just because you want to read some fine writing.
