Indeed, the book is filled with unsympathetic characters. Other than Wren’s wife, a hand surgeon of some repute, the novel’s pages are filled with nasty people...Manhattan Night is a quick, dark read that builds to an unexpected and perhaps not completely satisfying climax.

Synopsis

Now a major motion picture, Manhattan Night, starring Adrien Brody, Campbell Scott, Yvonne Strahovski, and Linda Lavin

Porter Wren is a Manhattan tabloid writer with an appetite for scandal. On the beat he sells murder, tragedy, and anything that passes for the truth. At home, he is a dedicated husband and father. But when a seductive stranger asks him to dig into the unsolved murder of her husband, he is drawn into a very nasty case of sexual obsession and blackmail--one that threatens his job, his marriage, and his life.

Manhattan Nocturne is a brilliantly drawn tableau of the gritty, gaudy city, and a thrilling literary noir.
