Another good new York mystery yarn with Terry Orr, the off-beat protagonist who, when not caring for his charming, ingenious daughter, spends most of his time fighting personal demaons while trying to solve his wife's murder. Usual cast of zany characters
It¿s been five years since Raymond Weisz allegedly threw his infant son on the railroad tracks in the path of an oncoming train. His wife Marina was also killed when she jumped down to rescue her son. Terry Orr is still determined to track down the man and kill him but in the meantime he and his fifteen-year-old daughter Bella go to New Orleans to attend the funeral of his friend Leo Mallard. Leo wanted Terry to find his wife so she could face justice. Lenore caused their flourishing restaurant to go into bankruptcy because she embezzled company funds. Terry has every intention of fulfilling Leo¿s last request but while he is in New Orleans he gets a fax stating Weisz¿s mother died. Believing that his family¿s killer will finally show at the funeral, Terry rushes back to New York City. As he talks to a person who had seen the subway killings of Terry¿s family members, the witness is murdered. As Terry searches for Raymond, he begins to learn the truth to that deadly incident five years ago and why Leo¿s reputation and happiness was destroyed. The protagonist of TRIBECA BLUES, a man readers have come to care about, conducts two different investigations in his own quixotic manner. Having a private investigator¿s license doesn¿t harden the man nor does the tragedy that haunts him or seeing the dark side of humanity. Instead it allows Terry to take action and feel he is part of making the world a better place. Jim Fusilli gives his audience an insider¿s look at the Big Apple he loves so much and come to understand why he loves the city that never sleeps. Harriet Klausner
