Synopsis (from B&N)
In this shattering story of urban crime, Sanders introduces Timothy Cone, a private eye who digs too deep into the murderous exploits of big business - and uncovers a twisted web of incest, drug addiction, and gut-wrenching violence...
Publishers Weekly
These three detective tales may not have quite the panache of The Anderson Tapes or the Deadly Sin series, but each is suspenseful, well wrought and stamped with Sanders's special insight into the baser aspects of human nature. They feature Timothy Cone, ``the Wall Street dick,'' who works for an investigative agency, has an affair going with his boss Samantha and, though unprepossessing in manner and appearance, feels driven to uncover the scams behind the glossy fronts of wealthy business; he can also smell a dummy corporation or a money-laundering operation a mile away. The files deal respectively with a murderous real-estate conglomerate, a fertility clinic devoted to considerably more than ``original biotechnological research'' and an investment house involved in drugsthough only detective work of the highest caliber can discover the seamy details.

This book contains 3 separate cases of Timothy Cone, a "Wall Street Dick" whose girlfriend is his Supervisor at Haldering and Company, a business that investigates the High-Stakes background checks of High Investment.
I enjoyed this book. This is the first book I've read where the Investigator frequently uses his revolver and manages to stay on fairly good terms with NY law enforcement. Tim lives on lots of booze, cigarettes, and bad food and chooses to live in a shabby loft with his cat, Cleo.
