In Joseph Trigoboff's debut novel The Bone Orchard, the world was introduced to Detective Alvin Yablonsky and the accolades were unanimous. The New York Times Book Review chose The Bone Orchard as one of the notable crime novels of the year, and the author was chosen for the "Discover Great New Writers Program." Now The Lyons Press is proud to publish The Shooting Gallery, Joseph Trigoboff's long awaited follow up.
When Detective Yablonsky is called upon to investigate the murder of a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, he is drawn into the seedy underbelly of Manhattan's elite world of the rich and famous, and a hard-boiled world of corruption and murder. The climax takes place in the heart of the East Village, where Starbucks and drug-infested "shooting galleries" sit side by side. Lean, taut, and gripping at every turn, The Shooting Gallery is a return to form for one of America's premiere voices in mystery writing, one who acclaimed mystery writer Loren D. Estleman has said "redefined the police procedural for a new generation."
