When a young black girl is found stabbed to death, both Justy Flanagan, now a City Marshal, and Kerry O’Toole, now a school teacher, decide separately to go after the killer. They each find their way to a shadowy community on the fringes of the growing city, where they uncover a craven political conspiracy bound up with a criminal enterprise that is stunning in its depravity.


My name is Paddy Hirsch. My first novel is called The Devil’s Half Mile. It’s an historical thriller, set in New York at the turn of the 18th century. It’s a tale of Wall Street trickery, corrupt politics, racial strife, gangs and murder. And I just finished a sequel, called Hudson’s Kill. It’ll be on sale in the US in September and in the UK in July.
