'A wild horse-and-carriage ride through early 19th century New York... Meticulously researched, the novel brings the city to life in lurid sensory detail.' Noel O'Reilly, author of Wrecker

New York, 1803.
The expanding city is rife with tension, and violence simmers on every street as black and Irish gangs fight for control. When a young girl is found brutally murdered, Marshal Justy Flanagan must find the killer before a mob takes the law into their own hands.

Kerry O'Toole, Justy's friend and ally, decides to pursue her own inquiries into the girl's murder. When they each find their way into a shadowy community on the fringes of the city, Justy and Kerry encounter a treacherous web of political conspiracy and criminal enterprise. As events dangerously escalate, they must fight to save not only the city, but also themselves...

MEDIA REVIEWS
A wild horse-and-carriage ride through early 19th century New York... Meticulously researched, the novel brings the city to life in lurid sensory detail. * Noel O'Reilly, author of Wrecker *
Absolutely loved this book. What an amazing adventure. Hirsch grabs you by the hand and pulls you into the fascinating and seamy underbelly of 19th century New York. It's Gangs of New York and CJ Sansom rolled into one; a thrilling ride, mesmerising locations, and a compelling murder mystery all at once. * C. S. Quinn, author of The Bastille Spy *
The prose is rich... a joy. * The Times *
A meticulously researched historical thriller... with strong, multifaceted [characters] and tight plotting. I will impatiently await the sequel. * Patrick Taylor, author of the Irish Country Books series, on The Devil's Half Mile *
Fascinating and well drawn. * The Times on The Devil's Half Mile *
A page-turning historical thriller... A perfect holiday read. * Irish Independent on The Devil's Half Mile *
