I enjoyed the story, and the relationship between the main characters. It was fun to read about and recognize neighborhoods in New York City; I suppose the corruption was not too far-fetched.

The protagonist was predictably blocked by obstacles and ostracized by her employer while determined to get to the truth. And I found myself caught up in the story line in spite of the author's use of time-worn plot devices.

I wonder how this writing compares to other works by Rozan.

All about corruption and kick backs in Harlem New York. Book has meeting after meeting with the mayor, council members, cops, building inspectors, etc. and whose ass is on the line when accidents happen and people die. Add to this bundle of happiness, a religious fervor (a preacher and some do-gooder) and I called it quits at page 50. I just couldn't take the political maneuverings and the b.s. Found this book boring as hell.
