This “dead perfect” noir-inflected murder mystery carries readers from New York City’s most elite precincts to its dirtiest gutters (Robert B. Parker).
 
Two years ago, writer Terry Orr lost his wife and infant son when a lunatic pushed them into the path of a subway train. Dissatisfied with the police response, he’s been looking for the killer himself ever since. Somewhere along the way, while raising his precocious daughter and continuing his search, he also becomes a legitimate private eye.
 
First, Terry encounters the brutal murder of a livery cab driver, which he’s determined to solve. Then, he’s drawn into the world of high art and ruthless ambition after a SoHo gallery is destroyed by a bomb blast. And when the two cases collide, Terry might be fatally out of his depth . . .
 
Wall Street Journal writer Jim Fusilli exploded onto the mystery scene with this debut novel hailed as “a gorgeous nightmare” (The New York Times Book Review).

Closing Time is the 1st book in the Terry Orr Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

About the author

Jim Fusilli is the author of eight novels and two works of nonfiction. He also served as the rock and pop music critic of the Wall Street Journal.

Among his novels are Closing Time, A Well-Known Secret, Tribeca Blues, and Hard, Hard City, about New York City private investigator Terry Orr and his young daughter, Bella, who Orr is raising in the aftermath of the murder of his wife and infant son. Narrows Gate is an epic set in the first half of the twentieth century in the Italian-American community of a gritty waterfront city based on Hoboken, New Jersey, Fusilli’s birthplace.

Fusilli has published many short stories including “Chellini’s Solution,” which appeared in the 2007 edition of the Best American Mystery Stories, and “Digby, Attorney at Law,” which was nominated for the Edgar and Macavity Awards.

In 2005, Fusilli wrote Pet Sounds, his tribute to Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys’ classic album. Described as “an experiment in music journalism,” the book combines the rhythm and emotional weight of his fiction with the often-unorthodox observations of his music criticism for the Journal, for whom he began writing in 1983. Pet Sounds was translated to Japanese by the novelist Haruki Murakami.

Fusilli is married to the former Diane Holuk, a senior global communications consultant. They reside in New York City. For more information, visit www.jimfusilli.com.
