One of our Great Reads you may have missed in 2011.

A disturbing, double-edged story of a man fighting his own demons and those he is investigating, all tied round an increasing quantity of dead girls.  It’s a gripping read, intense and powerful.  I think the author is very special and seriously advise you to read as many of his books as you can, especially his first, Candlemoth.

Saints of New York Synopsis

Frank Parrish had a famous father: a Saint of New York, an NYPD detective who helped rid the city of Mafia control in the 1980s. John Parrish is a tough act to follow - a legend in his own right - and Frank already has an insubordination rap to beat. Summoned for daily Police Department interviews, he's also trying to work out how the death of a young heroin dealer might connect to his innocent teenage sister, who's just been found dead. There are more questions than answers, not just as the homicides escalate, but as Frank battles with his own demons. He must find the truth, and bring the trail of murder to an end.
