Early one morning, investigator Gabe Storm is summoned to an apartment by the NYPD. Storm learns his best friend, Scotty Granger, a Broadway playwright, is dead. Police suggest Granger died in a botched burglary attempt. Unwilling to accept the NYPD's take on the murder, Storm pursues the illusive killer into the underbelly of Broadway’s high finance, the dangerous world of pimps and gangsters and through the halls of the U.S. Senate where he learns how even a dead man cannot keep a secret.
Angels In Mourning Received Book of the Month Award for April 2009
ALA Booklist (American Library Association) "...This excellent thriller is enhanced by by the careful detail with which police investigatory procedures are described, by the presence of a sharp protagonist in Hyte, and by more than a few clever plot twists...."--WL
KIRKUS REVIEW "...Half Thriller, Have whodunit, not half bad... Nicely handled stereotypes, from people to places to emotions.... Biggest asset is Hyte, who wears well enough to become a series hero."
"WARNING: David Wind has written an engrossing story with tremendous pace and authenticity of detail. It is a book to be savored, although perhaps not on a plane from Tangier...." J.R. Manber, Diamond Rev
