Having recently bought new bookshelves, I am culling my TBR pile to get all my books to fit. Heh! This one has been awaiting avid reading far too long. Perhaps somebody else can lose themselves in its pages...

From the Publisher
Brooklyn. Early June. A man strolls into a candy store, pulls out a sawed-off shotgun, and blows away two people: owner Yetta Zimmerman and her customer, NYPD Lt. Joe Gallagher. Suddenly it is a very hot summer for Detective Lt. Tony Scanlon. For this is just the first in a series of brutal, inexplicable hits that lead Scanlon on a journey into the nightmare universe that cops and criminals cohabit . . . and deep into the private tragedies of his own life . . . then deeper still into his other life, the job, where he uncovers a frightening hidden world riddled with suspects in blue. But it all begins with the opening double murder and a moment of shock when Scanlon opens that dead lieutenant's locker . . . .

Released on Thursday, December 16, 2004 at about 9:00:00 PM BX time (GMT-06:00) Central Time (US & Canada) at Post Office at 153rd and Garrett in Apple Valley, Minnesota Controlled Releases.

Lt. Tony Scanlon gets the call that a Sergent and business owner have been shot and killed in a robbery. After interviewing the witnesses, Scanlon learns that the shooter yelled 'hey you' before killing the two. Was it really a robbery or was one of them the intended target? Scanlon works with his troupe of disgraced cops, he himself having lost his leg, to solve the case when the son of the business owner is killed. What connects them all together?

I'm not usually a big fan of mysteries where a cop is the victim. I find that the motives are usually similar and books begin to feel the same because the same questions are being asked. However, you could tell the Caunitz had experience on the force which brought a bit of a different element to the book. I don't think I had read a book where the cop's locker gets cleaned out as a first step to an investigation, which was kind of interesting.

The mystery of this book was rather weak, but the characters were what kept me reading. Scanlon and his band of misfits were an interesting crew. I enjoyed Scanlon's personal and professional life, it's just a shame that the mystery didn't match.
