Summary

In the roughest precinct in New York, one cop tries to hold back the flood of crime It’s a lovely autumn in the Big Apple, and the weather is perfect for trouble. Over the weekend, a teenage gang rumbled on the playground, leaving a fifteen year-old stabbed and a younger boy beaten half to death; a high-speed chase left one dead and two badly injured; and a fire in a tenement killed two—and the police found the arsonist standing outside, relishing his handiwork. It was a beautiful weekend in the city, and every deadly incident found its way across the police blotter of the Fifty-Second Precinct and into the hands of Lieutenant Clancy.   One of the hardest detectives on the force, Clancy will be tested with everything from a recluse’s murder to an assassination attempt at the United Nations this fall. It may be his job, but it is never routine.

    FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE BESTSELLING COTSWOLD MYSTERIES SERIES 
    Fifty-five-year-old Jim Lapsford makes an unusually healthy-looking corpse. A life-long devotee of vitamin pills and herbal remedies, it seems almost ironic that he has succumbed to a heart attack. His GP is convinced that this is the case but trainee undertaker Drew Slocombe isn't so sure and he is convinced that there is enough conflicting medical evidence to merit a coroner's inquest at least. And then there's Jim's personal life: in addition to a long suffering wife, two sons and a grieving terrier, Jim appears to have left behind a series of scorned mistresses. 
    It seems everyone else is happy enough to accept the doctor's verdict and Drew shouldn't really rock the boat, but can he really turn his back on murder? Even so, Drew may have plenty of suspects but he has no proof. And Jim's cremation is days away...
