Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Jim Fusilli's atmospheric follow-up to his first two novels (Closing Time and A Well-Known Secret) continues the travails of P.I. Terry Orr, as he searches for the psychopath who forced his wife and child beneath a subway train. With a streamlined narrative fueled with recurrent tragedy, the author's work is often chilling and resonates with moral ambiguity.

Terry, a New York writer and historian turned private detective, still struggles with his anguish five years after the tragedy. His sorrow is heightened in the wake of September 11th, and he forms strong bonds with his droll, buoyant teenage daughter, Bella, and with the New York neighborhood where he lives and works. But when Terry learns that Raymond Weisz, the man he holds responsible for the death of his wife and infant son, might actually be innocent, he throws himself back into the case with a consuming vengeance, picking up the trail of a mysterious figure from the past.

Fusilli brilliantly evokes the haunting aftereffects of major tragedy -- in the life of his protagonist and in the slow recovery of post-9/11 Manhattan. The rapid-fire pace of Tribeca Blues propels readers into an absorbing tale of danger, heartache, and healing, as the author places his characters into intense, profound situations, and he keeps the emotion-packed plot moving along at full-throttle. Tom Piccirilli

The New York Times
Jim Fusilli's noir novels are like cobblestones -- smooth and hard and deeply embedded in the streets of New York. As narrated by Terry Orr, who became a private investigator after his wife and son were pushed in front of a subway train, Tribeca Blues reflects a dark, disjointed city where the natives are constantly moving but feel at home only in their own neighborhoods. Terry prowls them all, from insular TriBeCa (where the World Trade Center towers still cast ghostly shadows) to showy Riverside Park (where the bigger the dog, the grander the owner's apartment), watching for clues -- not always to urban crimes, sometimes just for hints on how to walk and talk like a living person. — Marilyn Stasio
Publishers Weekly
Still plagued by the tragic loss of his wife and son five years earlier, sometime PI Terry Orr finally gets a chance to find the man he thinks killed them in Fusilli's third installment of his Tribeca series (Closing Time; A Well-Known Secret). Distanced from his surviving daughter (the intellectually precocious teenaged Bella, who's just completed her first book), Terry has been seeing a shrink to little effect, although his blossoming relationship with prosecutor Julie Giada seems to be helping a bit. Two incidents kick the plot into gear: first, the death of Leo Mallard, Terry's longtime friend and owner of a struggling TriBeCa watering hole called the Tilt, and second, Terry's discovery of a fresh clue in his search for the Madman, Raymond Weisz, the lunatic genius Terry blames for taking his wife and son. But as Terry probes the darkness, searching for Weisz by interviewing eyewitnesses to the tragedy (and while he tries to execute Leo's will, against a rising tide of resentment from Leo's widow and sister), he learns some harsh truths about the circumstances of his wife's fate and the Madman's role in it. Right about the time Leo's drunken widow decides to claim her inheritance at point-blank range, Terry threatens to unravel. Terry is an appealing character, a single parent still suffering from incalculable loss, trying to raise his daughter in a neighborhood also struggling to pull itself together. Putnam is obviously grooming Fusilli to take his place in its stable of mystery bestsellers, and the follow-up to this sometimes rough but necessary narrative link in the series may well do it. (Oct.) Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Kirkus Reviews
Pro bono shamus Terry Orr, still looking for jobs to do while he's waiting to avenge the deaths of his wife and infant son, finds work close to home that doesn't even involve a mystery. Leo Mallard has died of natural causes, but he's left quite a mess behind: a charge to Terry to find and punish Loretta Jones, the ex who took off with the profits from Big Chief's, the restaurant they shared, and a letter passing ownership of the Tilt-A-Whirl, Big Chief's raffish successor, to rock critic Dennis Diddio. It's no trouble to find Loretta, who demands the Tilt as her right and vows to make Terry's life miserable-an empty threat against somebody whose wife, painter Marina Fiorentino, died trying to rescue her son Davy from the subway tracks where lunatic piano prodigy Raymond Montgomery Weisz pushed his stroller under the eyes of 13 witnesses. Now that Terry's spent five years hunting for Weisz, however, a 14th witness suddenly says Weisz was trying to save Davy. And he's got some unwelcome news about Marina too. Terry's batted back and forth like a pinball from his violence-strewn attempt to settle Leo's estate to his attempt to settle his score with Weisz once and for all. Fusilli (A Well-Known Secret, 2002, etc.) writes with such poetic intensity that it's easy to overlook how little Terry's two cases have to do with each other, apart from the righteous indignation that fuels them both.

    Fusilli Works His Characters

    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

    Outstanding novel

    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.<P> 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.<P> 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.<P> Harriet Klausner
