During the stifling autumn of 1962, NYPD detective Pat Wynne catches the hardest case of his career. A young Cuban man's body has been found on the High Line freight railroad, mutilated beyond recognition. His is the second Cuban murder in New York that year - both bodies displaying the same tattoo of a worm and the words Cuba Libre. Meanwhile, international tension is mounting and missiles are trained on America. The city is terrified. Pat is not only investigating a disturbing, politically sensitive case: there may be a spy on his own doorstep. Are his instincts correct, or is he about to commit the ultimate act of betrayal?

MEDIA REVIEWS
Nadelson is fascinated by the paranoia of the period, but she also offers a loving celebration of early 1960s New York, a city alive with discussion and debate. As ever with this writer, the sense of place is crucial, but what really energises the narrative is the political turmoil, ever present in the minds of her characters and readers * Financial Times *
This book works on many levels - as a political thriller; a murder mystery; a historical crime novel; a snapshot of American history. If any of these things appeal to you, then this book is a must-read * Shots magazine *
Nadelson writes wonderfully well about New York -- Ian Rankin on Londongrad
Artie Cohen is the detective New York deserves: smart, wounded, emotional, haunted, and not as tough as he thinks. Reggie Nadelson's Cohen books get better and better -- Salman Rushdie on Fresh Kills
Nadelson makes Harlem, with its up-and-down history, live and breathe on the page. Humming with suspense, this is New York Noir at its best * Daily Mail on Bloodcount *
Wonderfully claustrophobic * Guardian on Bloodcount *
