I picked this book up in the shelf of books left behind by visitors to a resort in Hawaii. You couldn't have had a greater contrast! The book is set in NYC and deals with seamy and obscene acts.

This is the hardest-boiled of hard boiled detectives and he's faced with child exploitation on lots of levels. I found the writing compelling and the book unforgettable if you have the stomach for it.
