Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
They arrive every season like clockwork, those cops-turned-novelists who are promoted as the ``next Wambaugh.'' But Dee, a retired 20-year veteran of the NYPD, may be the real thing. While his first novel lacks Wambaugh's raucous humor, there's no doubt that it's told in an authentic and powerful voice. When Dee's narrator, NYPD detective Tony Ryan, describes the streets of the Fulton Fish Market as ``cobblestones coated with grease from a century of fish'' or visits a bar where ``the air was warm and damp and smelled of cigars, pine needles, and wet wool from a dozen damp overcoats,'' the sense of place is almost palpable. In 1982, Ryan and his partner, Joe (``The Great'') Gregory, come across the body of a crooked cop who, 10 years earlier, was due to testify before the Knapp Commission investigating police corruption before he disappeared. Their investigation keeps bringing them closer to the worst possible revelation: that detective John ``Jinx'' Mulgrew was murdered not by the mob, but by fellow cops. Though it will be obvious to some readers that a seemingly peripheral character is deeply involved in the mystery, this flaw is far outweighed by Dee's way with words. Here's Dee's take on the stresses that cops experience when working nights: ``It happened to cops all the time: guys work all night, sleep all day. They lose track of wives, kids, days, months, lies they've told, bars they can't get back into, women they've screwed, stories about them that aren't true.'' Any writer who can sing NYPD blues like that is worth keeping an eye on. (July)
Library Journal
In 1982, while on a stakeout, detectives Joe Gregory and Anthony Ryan see a group of neighborhood enforcers dump a white barrel into Manhattan's East River. The divers who are sent to retrieve it find the wrong barrel, which happens to contain the body of Jinx Mulgrew, a detective who disappeared during an investigation of police corruption ten years before. Gregory and Ryan set about piecing together the fragments of this elaborate puzzle. Dee, a first-time author and former New York City policeman, has captured and succinctly portrayed his former profession in this very tidy novel. Readers of the police procedural will welcome Dee to the ranks of such outstanding novelists as William J. Caunitz and Joseph Wambaugh. Highly recommended.-Jo Ann Vicarel, Cleveland Heights-University Heights P.L., Ohio

Anthony Ryan and Joe Gregory are a pair of New York City detectives. Gregory is a career supercop who thrives on every aspect of the job; Ryan is contemplating retirement and a second career in teaching. One night in 1983, they see two Mob types toss a large oil drum off a pier. Gregory is positive it's a body and orders a dredge, which produces a different, much older barrel containing the remains of Jinx Mulgrew, a corrupt cop missing since 1973. Gregory sees the case as a chance at a gold shield; Ryan, on the other hand, views it as a potential land mine of police politics and internal-affairs issues. As the investigation careens the pair between Jinx's Mob contacts and a very uncooperative police department, they watch their list of friends shrink. Meanwhile, they must come to terms with the idea of Jinx not just as a corrupt cop, but as a multidimensional manhusband, friend, lover, enemy. This solid police procedural possesses a decidedly melancholy air, helped along by the twice-removed perspective10 years back to the case and 20 back to Jinx's death. An impressive debut.
From Barnes & Noble
Written by a veteran New York City police lieutenant, this authentically drawn drama finds detectives Joe Gregory and Anthony Ryan investigating the mysterious appearance of a dead cop who's been missing for 10 years--a case that leads nowhere, but the blue wall of silence.

    John -Southwest USA Retired 28 year veteran of the New York State Troopers/Bureau of Criminal Investigation

    NYPD Retd/Lieutenant/Author Ed Dee's vast knowledge of Criminal Investigation and the dynamics of society in the busy City of New York comes to life in this great work. Detective partners, Anthony Ryan and Joe Gregory attach themselves to this bizarre murder case of a fellow police officer. It shocks the detectives to see the decedent with his shield jammed between his teeth. This is a story you won't be able to put down until you have immersed yourself in this revealing book of hardworking COPS. New York City has been the training ground for many fine NYPD officers throughout their history. Their skills and know-how and expertise flow through this great book.
