To enthusiastic reviews David Cray staked out his gritty, darkly realistic territory in the field of crime fiction with the gripping police procedural Little Girl Blue. In it, he also introduced the tough-minded NYPD lieutenant Julia Brennan and disaffected undercover cop Peter Foley—just two of the reasons that prompted the Cleveland Plain Dealer to note, “It’s only a matter of time before the reading world discovers David Cray.” That time has come with Brennan’s second outing in New York’s criminal underworld. Now a captain and commanding officer of the district attorney’s Sex Crimes Unit, Brennan is investigating the homicide of Adeline Rose, who has been found murdered in the third-floor sitting room of her Manhattan townhouse. So consumed does Julia become by the case, in fact, that she barely notices Peter Foley has not been returning her phone calls. Foley has discovered that his young daughter, kidnapped more than five years before, is still alive. Prepared to do anything to get his child back, Foley has intentionally been avoiding the more scrupulous Julia. She, though, will soon prove to be his fiercest ally—in a deadly game with stakes so high that no rules hold. “A master manipulator ... with sardonic humor.”—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
