Book Summary

The death of a young heroin dealer causes no great concern for NYPD Detective Frank Parrish? - Danny Lange is just another casualty of the drug war. But when Danny's teenage sister winds up dead, questions are raised that have no clear answers. As the homicides continue and a disturbing pattern emerges, Frank tries desperately to make some sense of the deaths, while battling with his own demons.

Trying to live up to the reputation of his father, John - not only a legendary NYPD detective, but also one of the original "Saints of New York" - the men charged with the responsibility of ridding New York of the final vestiges of Mafia control in the 1980s - Parrish struggles to come to terms with the broken pieces of his own life. But, as the murders escalate, he must discover the truth behind them before there are further innocent victims

Dark and intense, Saints of New York is a novel of corruption and redemption, of the relentless persistence required to find the truth, and of one man's search for meaning amidst the ghosts of his own conscience.

Media Reviews

"Starred Review. [A] beautifully written crime novel." - Publishers Weekly

"The climax is masterful, a chaotic collision of the planned and the unforeseen which illustrates just how well Ellory is in charge of his characters and his plot. Saints of New York just couldn't be better." - Sydney Morning Herald

"As usual in an Ellory novel the research is on the button and perfectly pitched to help propel the story along." - Crimesquad

"Ellory writes film-ready prose and you can really see this one as the pages turn." - Globe and Mail
