This is a police procedural. Cynthia Doyle was beaten and stabbed to death in an alley between 9th and 10th near 45th. She was blonde and she was dead. Eyewitnesses saw a man run away. Detective Danny Rackman investigates and, because Cynthia's place of employment had been massage parlor, that means checking out every single peep show, pimp, junkie, and filthy bar in 1970s Times Square.
Rackman has been through two marriages and two divorces and has a teenage daughter from the first marriage he hardly sees. She lives in Forest Hills. The ex wife is still a nagging bitch.
This is a good old fashioned detective story and Levinson is a pretty good writer. Why he has been forgotten and virtually unread is unknown to me. This is a book that's hard to put down. Not much effort is wasted on fancy descriptions. It's all meat here. He gives you the detective's perspective and the depraved killer's perspective. Good stuff. Nuff said.
This story is essentially a police procedural. Danny Rachman is a New York City cop who has problems with women when he's assigned to track down a serial killer known as the New York Slasher, who's murdering the prostitutes in the Time Square area ( Jack the Ripper). The first part of the novel is from Rachman's point of view and the second part gets inside the head of the killer. The third section details how Rachman catches the Slasher.
The book includes some raw and realistic writing about the New York sex industry in the 1980s but Levinson's style is honest and readable and the plot is exciting. A tip of the hat to Amazon for releasing several of Levinson's earlier titles as Kindle Books. If they are as good as this one, I look forward to reading all of them.
Past that I didn't like it at all. Couldn't tell if the author hates women and this was his venting, or if it was the characters. But either way it was too much for me.
