A gripping debut work of crime fiction, from the author of the bestselling memoir about life as a New York City cop, "Blue Blood." ("May be the best account ever written of life behind the badge." --"Time")
In "Red on Red, "Edward Conlon tells the electrifying and suspenseful story of two NYPD detectives, Meehan and Esposito: one damaged and introspective, the other ambitious and unscrupulous. Meehan is compelled by haunting and elusive stories that defy easy resolution, while Esposito is drawn to cases of rough and ordinary combat. A fierce and unlikely friendship develops between them and plays out against a tangle of mysteries: a lonely immigrant who hangs herself in Inwood Hill Park, a serial rapist preying on upper Manhattan, a troubled Catholic schoolgirl who appears in the wrong place with uncanny regularity, and a savage gang war that erupts over a case of mistaken identity.
A literary thriller about the twisted dynamic of a successful police partnership--the tests of loyalty, the necessary betrayals, the intersections of life and work--"Red on Red" tells an unrelenting and exciting story that captures the grittiness, complexity, ironies, and compromises of life on the job.
