Browse books by categories
Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as an â€śutterly irresistible heroine,â€ť Darlene Oâ€™Haraâ€”the brilliant, hard-living, obsessive, and somewhat self-destructive detective introduced in Peter de Jongeâ€™s acclaimed crime fiction masterwork Shadows Still Remainâ€”returns in Buried on Avenue B. An edgy and suspenseful noir thriller, Buried on Avenue B traverses the gritty landscape of New Yorkâ€™s Lower East Side and the more sordid corners of Sarasota, Florida, as a gruesome and unexpected discovery in a makeshift Alphabet City grave heats up a 17-year-old cold case. James Patterson calls Darlene Oâ€™Hara â€śone of the freshest, hippest detective creations in many a year,â€ť and the New York Times has described Peter de Jongeâ€™s writing as â€śin the noirish, character-driven vein of Dennis Lehane or Michael Connelly.â€ť For fans of serious crime fiction, Peter de Jonge is a must-read, and Detective Darlene Oâ€™Hara is cop to be reckoned with.
