In this New York Times bestseller, an NYPD detective discovers an international conspiracy:“The action builds with such intensity you’ll race to finish” (New York Daily News).
The precinct house at 19 Elizabeth Street is one of the oldest in New York, and some things about it never change. Overworked cops interrogate suspects, complain about their wives, and peck out reports on battered old typewriters. Steel mesh covers the windows and the garbage cans overflow. And as Lt. Dan Malone climbs the steps, nursing a hangover, he’s certain that no matter what the city throws at them, the men in his squad will be able to handle it.
When a naked corpse is found in a bathtub, Malone expects another routine homicide, but this body has stories to tell. Investigating the tragic life and death of Sara Eisinger leads Malone into the thick of an international conspiracy involving the CIA, the Mossad, and a plot to wreak havoc across New York. Only a seasoned cop can solve this mystery, and there’s no cop in New York as tough as Lieutenant Malone.
An NYPD detective investigates a double homicide in a Brooklyn candy store, in a thriller by the New York Times–bestselling author of One Police Plaza.
In Greenpoint, everyone comes to Yetta’s. A candy store one block west of McGoldrick Park, it’s a neighborhood landmark, the place where Brooklynites come to sip a soda, buy a paper, and argue about gentrification. But when Lt. Joe Gallagher comes by to drop off a birthday cake for Yetta, he doesn’t notice the homeless man standing outside. Gallagher has just handed over the cake when the man enters, drops his shopping bag, and pulls out a shotgun. The lieutenant doesn’t have time to reach his revolver before he’s blown away. Yetta is the next to die.
Investigating the double homicide, Det. Lt. Tony Scanlon discovers that Gallagher was more than an ordinary hard-drinking, hardworking Irish cop. And as more killings follow, Scanlon knows that this will be a summer of blood for the NYPD.

On a long overdue vacation, Maj. Andreas Vassos takes his family from Athens to a resort village on the Grecian coast, hoping for sun, surf, and a few days without worry. It’s just the holiday he needs—until the family goes to get a treat and the crowded café is raked with gunfire. Acting on instinct, Vassos grabs a pistol from a murdered cop and chases after the killers. He’s able to take one down, but the other escapes. The hunt is on.
The deaths are tied to the search for a priceless Greek artifact. And finding the killers and saving the relic takes Vassos to New York City, where he forms a partnership with the NYPD’s Teddy Lucas, a Greek immigrant once known as Theodorous Loucopolous. They may not speak the same language, but cops are cops, and either of these men would lay down his life to save his brother in blue.
