In JOSEPH TRIGOBOFF'S debut novel "The Bone Orchard," the world was introduced to Detective Alvin Yablonsky, and the accolades were unanimous." Publishers Weekly" called it "a compelling crime novel debut," the author was chosen for the Discover Great New Writers Program, and "The New York Times Book Review "chose "The Bone Orchard "as one of the notable crime novels of the year. Now here is THE SHOOTING GALLERY, Joseph Trigoboff's eagerly anticipated follow-up.
When Detective Yablonsky is called upon to investigate the murder of a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, he is drawn into the seedy underbelly of Manhattan's elite world of the rich and famous. The victim, Skinny McPherson--a hard-hitting reporter for the alternative newspaper "The Guardian"--had powerful enemies everywhere, from real-estate mogul Raymond Staples to crooked judge Dollars Dillon. But the more Detective Yablonsky investigates, the further he is drawn into a hard-boiled world of corruption and murder. The gripping climax takes place in the heart of the East Village, where Starbucks coffee shops and drug users' "shooting galleries" sit side by side. Lean, taut, and gripping at every turn, THE SHOOTING GALLERY is a return to form for one of America's premiere voices in mystery writing.
