Editorial Reviews


A put-upon prosecutor investigates a racially charged murder in this spicy legal drama. It seems like an open-and-shut case when a Hasidic Jewish man is stabbed to death on a Brooklyn street, and his alleged assailant, identified by three witnesses, is caught minutes later by the Hasidic Shomrim foot patrol. It's 1991, the Crown Heights crime scene is a powder keg of ethnic tension, and the perp is a Puerto Rican man. The Hasidim want a quick conviction, while the Hispanic community cries racial profiling. Assistant district attorney Carmen Rodriguez-used to being on the receiving end of bigoted presumptions-finds herself navigating a political minefield. Then the witnesses turn out to be unreliable (one, a Talmudic scholar, seems to be possessed by the spirit of a dead crack whore), an alibi surfaces for the defendant, a diamond is mysteriously stolen from the dead man's safe and Carmen wonders whether she's prosecuting the right man. Alas, her commitment to justice often clashes with her instinct for self-preservation. Carmen's boss, eager to placate the politically powerful Hasidim, insists that she sweep the case's untidy details under the rug...Out of Carmen's travails the authors craft a crime procedural that's lively...they stock the story with sharply drawn characters (the eternally kvetching but tough-as-nails presiding judge is a hoot), cannily observed procedural and intriguing courtroom twists that will keep readers guessing. An engrossing tale about the difficulty of discerning justice through the murk of New York's melting pot.
