A stunning new historical thriller set during the Wall Street Crash of 1929.

New York, 1929, a city of speakeasies, swells and hoodlums at the fag end of the roaring twenties. It’s a hell of a time and place for a young cop to be trying to make his way in the world.

After reading the Master of Rain, I was looking forward to reading this. It was an Ok read, but not up to his earlier book

I found this book a disappointment. Not that I had read much about it, but I have enjoyed others by Bradby and expected better.

I liked the attempt at hard-boiled dialogue and the pulp plot, but it was too long for that sort of thing.

His stock characters and hackneyed plotting just didn't pull it off.

His Master of Rain is a favourite of mine for atmosphere and sence of place. This just did not have either of those.

Average. If you are going to write a book with New York as a backdrop, you need to get your facts straight. For example, there was no Bank of America in 1929 and there is no "Red Rock" section of Brooklyn...

I'm abandoning this one. I've given it a fair shot but it's not doing much for me and it's very long.
