Inhaltsangabe

From the author of the celebrated and best-selling memoir Blue Blood (“May be the best account ever written of life behind the badge.” Time) comes this highly anticipated fiction debut.

In Red on Red, Edward Conlon tells the story of two NYPD detectives, Meehan and Esposito: one damaged and introspective, the other ambitious and unscrupulous. Meehan is compelled by haunting and elusive stories that defy easy resolution, while Esposito is drawn to cases of rough and ordinary combat. A fierce and unlikely friendship develops between them and plays out against a tangle of mysteries: a lonely immigrant who hangs herself in Inwood Hill Park, a serial rapist preying on upper Manhattan, a troubled Catholic schoolgirl who appears in the wrong place with uncanny regularity, and a savage gang war that erupts over a case of mistaken identity.

Red on Red captures the vibrant dynamic of a successful police partnership—the tests of loyalty, the necessary betrayals, the wedding of life and work—and tells an unrelenting and exciting story that captures the grittiness, complexity, ironies, and compromises of life on the job.

Kritikerstimmen

“A big, daring, psychologically complex story—passionate and poignant, pulsating with authenticity and street smarts yet lyrical and literary—this is the cop novel for everyone who reads books." (Joseph Wambaugh)
Red on Red is often brutal and often brutally funny, reaching into the depths of human malice and rising to the level of language that all good literature should achieve.” (Colum McCann, author of Let the Great World Spin, winner of the National Book Award)
