Central Park West (Hardback)James Comey (author)
The page-turning debut thriller from the former director of the FBI and bestselling author of A Higher Loyalty, Central Park West takes the killing of a disgraced former governor as its starting point to weave an ingenious story of political corruption, legal wrangling, and murder.
One chance to crack the case. A million ways to lose. Federal prosecutor Nora Carleton has spent years building a case against a powerful New York mobster. She finally has a star witness whose testimony will lock the defendant away for good.
But the courtroom is an unpredictable place. While the killing of a disgraced former governor appears unconnected to the trial, the fallout from his death means a guilty verdict hangs in the balance. Desperate to stop the mobster walking free, Nora investigates the darker side of the city to find out how everything connects.
The more she uncovers, the deeper the corruption runs. And Nora knows better than most that the truth is a fragile thing - especially in court. Drawing on James Comey's thirty years in federal law enforcement, Central Park West is a fast-paced thriller, bursting with tension and authenticity - perfect for fans of John Grisham.
