New Lots

Overview

New Lots, Brooklyn, is the second-to-last stop on the L train, and the absolute last stop in life for the residents of the New Lots projects. If there's a hell on earth, it's here, with a twenty-four-hour drug market, a terrifying warren of dark hallways and burnt-out apartments, infested with human vermin and ruled by a gang of killers. Not even the police will set foot in New Lots.

A war rages here, a war that will determine who controls it. Will it be the ruthless Muslim ...

Overview

New Lots, Brooklyn, is the second-to-last stop on the L train, and the absolute last stop in life for the residents of the New Lots projects. If there's a hell on earth, it's here, with a twenty-four-hour drug market, a terrifying warren of dark hallways and burnt-out apartments, infested with human vermin and ruled by a gang of killers. Not even the police will set foot in New Lots.

A war rages here, a war that will determine who controls it. Will it be the ruthless Muslim Security Company on a holy mission to clean out the complex? Or the vicious Blue-Tops crack gang determined to keep what's theirs? The shot, the beaten, the burned bodies begin to multiply much too rapidly, even by Brooklyn standards. The call goes out for the one man who can stop it, NYPD Detective First Grade, Loyd Shaw; a man who thinks he has nothing to lose, and the only man tough enough to brave it.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"New Lots is prime-time crime fiction...Clarkson has bagged himself a hit. New Lots is the proof."—Lorenzo Carcaterra, New York Times bestselling author of Sleepers.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Good-guy cops, bad-guy dope dealers and wannabe-good-guy black Muslims fight over a Brooklyn housing project in Clarkson's snappy latest (after And Justice for One). Loyd Shaw, a trigger-happy cop on the outs with his superiors, is an inch from losing his pension. To redeem himself, he has to drive Archie Reynolds and his crack-dealing Blue Tops gang out of the New Lots projects. Shaw gets to handpick his own crew from among other rogue (or almost rogue) cops, each of whom seems tailor-made for yesterday's action movie: a Chinese-American computer hacker; a tough Italian-American bigot; a smart, sharpshooting Jewish homosexual; a quiet, by-the-books African American. Why New Lots? Maybe it's the violent retaliations from Rachman Abdul X and his security force. Or maybe it's Justine Burton, the police commissioner's daughter, whose women's shelter is a Blue Tops target. Despite the hackneyed premise and stereotyped characters, the charming love story between black Burton and white Shaw--and the violent battles for control of New Lots--will satisfy readers looking for a fast, if predictable, cop thriller with sympathetic leads. (Sept.)
Library Journal
Even with the Muslim Security Company going head to head with the Blue-Tops crack gang, violence is escalating beyond the expected in Brooklyn's New Lots project. A lead Forge title for the fall.
Kirkus Reviews
Thrillingly complex drug-war novel set in Brooklyn's Brownsville section, with steel-edged dialogue, and intensively researched by Clarkson (And Justice for One, 1992, etc.). Detective Sergeant Lloyd Shaw, a rogue cop, is on restricted duty, without a badge, when heþs attacked by three blacks, overpowers them, andþwith their gunþshoots up their pulsating rap speakers. For this, he's sent off to his cabin in Massachusetts until his punishment can be decided. Meanwhile, back in Brooklyn, the New Lots housing project has been overrun by drug dealers, and its four stinking, bug- and rat-infested buildings are filled largely with crack addicts. Then Arbor Realty buys the project from the city, hiring a Muslim team of enforcers to clear out the building. War erupts between the Muslims and the dealersþand a helluva shoot-þem-up it is, with drive-by blasting and a smartly executed firebombing. But on a formerly vacant lot across from the project sit several prefab buildings, housing a Community Center run by the police commissioner's daughter, Justine Burton. Justine cares for crack mothers and their kids and sets them up in her prefabs, although it seems the mothers hustle back into the New Lots project for their fixes. Meantime, black drug kingpin Archie Reynolds feels no qualms about killing anyone who stands in the way of his business. He tells the women of the Community Center that he'll cut their throats. Since Justine is not about to give up her center, her father the commissioner leans on the chief of detectives to do something about the drug war and save his daughter from being caught in the crossfire. The chief recalls Shaw and has him form a team to takeon the job, with murder no impediment. Hard-driving realism.
