Sarah Broadhurst's view...

An above-average New York drugs, kidnapping tale involving a dedicated Italian mafia hunter from Naples using unusual techniques in the Big Apple. Accompanied by a female agent, befriending a useful street urchin and seriously upsetting the mafia, this builds to an intriguing twist in a fast, highly recommended read. He has a terrific backlist to indulge in too, especially Sleepers and Gangster.
Comparison: Mario Puzo, Michael Connelly, George Pelecanos.
Similar this month: Lee Child, Michael Marshall.

If you like Lorenzo Carcaterra you might also like to read books by Joseph Wambaugh, Roger Jon Ellory and Mark Winegardner.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

Synopsis

Paradise City by Lorenzo Carcaterra

Giancarlo Lo Manto is the toughest cop on the toughest beat in Europe - a detective in the Naples homicide squad, dedicated to bringing down the mob. But what hurts the gangsters in the old country hurts them in the new world too. In the highest towers of the most expensive streets in New York City, Lo Manto is becoming a problem. When Lo Manto learns his teenage niece, Paula, has gone missing in Manhattan, the two worlds, the two cities, are set to collide. The poor of Naples call New York Paradise City. For Gian Lo Manto, coming to the City is a journey into hell.
