A Cold Case

by Philip Gourevitch

A Cold Case Synopsis

A Cold Case is the story of how Andy Rosenzweig, retired Manhattan cop, reopened an investigation into a double murder that had happened more than thirty years earlier. It bothered him that Frankie Koehler, the notoriously dangerous suspect, had eluded capture. In a surprising, intensely dramatic narrative, Philip Gourevitch has transformed Rosenzweig's crusade into a searing literary masterpiece, reckoning with the forces that drive one man to murder and another to hunt murderers. Philip Gourevitch's first novel, We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed With Our Families: Stories from Rwanda, won the Guardian First Book Award. 'A gripping, hard-boiled crime story of the highest order - and one which, in the end, transports the reader to some of the most troubling precincts of human enquiry' Irish Times 'Atmospheric, honest and intelligently written, avoiding the obvious in favour of the thought-provoking' Daily Telegraph 'His work feels trim and ageless, like a classic...It whips through arresting events at high speed...I didn't put it down until I hit the back cover' New Statesman
