When one of Raymond Donne's former students is found stabbed to
death under the Williamsburg Bridge, Ray draws on his past as a cop
to find the truth in Tim O'Mara's second New York mystery.
Raymond Donne's former student Douglas Lee had everything going
for him thanks to a scholarship to an exclusive private school in
Manhattan, but all of that falls apart when his body is found below
the Williamsburg Bridge with a dozen knife wounds in it. That kind
of violence would normally get some serious attention from the
police and media except when it's accompanied by signs that it
could be gang related. When that's the case, the story dies and the
police are happy to settle for the straightforward explanation.
Dougie's mom isn't having any of that and asks Ray, who had been a
cop before an accident cut his career short, to look into it,
unofficially. He does what he can, asking questions, doling out
information to the press, and filling in some holes in the
investigation, but he doesn't get far before one of Dougie's
private school friends is killed and another is put in the
What kind of trouble could a couple of sheltered kids get into that
would end like that? And what does is have to do with Dougie's
death? None of it adds up, but there's no way Ray can just wait
around for something to happen.
Following on the heels of his acclaimed debut, Tim O'Mara's
"Crooked Numbers "is another outstanding mystery that brings the
streets of Brooklyn and Manhattan to life and further solidifies
O'Mara's place among the most talented new crime fiction writers
