Overview

Killer by Christopher Newman

THE HIT
The shooter knew just where Lt. Joe Dante would be and just when to bring him down. But when the gunfire stopped and the blood seeped out onto the Manhattan pavement, Dante was still alive. And now he's bent on revenge.

THE HEAT
A maverick detective who socializes with New York's rich and famous and arrests society's scum, Joe Dante had busted a Colombian drug enforcer and earned a price on his head. Now Dante is back at work, trying to find the killer who came after him, and finding more murders every step of his way.

THE HUNT
From New York to Miami, a trail of broken bodies and shattered lives leads the New York cop closer to his quarry. But in a puzzle with a thousand pieces, Dante is missing the most dangerous one of all: who is the traitor on his own side?

About the Author

Born in San Francisco, California, Christopher Newman wrote the first draft of his third published novel, Manana Man, while in residence in Cali, Colombia his senior year in college. At 27, he moved to New York City, working as a trim carpenter for five years in Manhattan before publishing his first Joe Dante novel, Mid-Town South, in 1985. When that title met with considerable commercial success, his publisher convinced him to turn his protagonist into a series character. Eight more Joe Dante novels followed, all making various national best seller lists. Mid-Town North, published in 1991, was nominated for an Edgar Allan Poe Award by the Mystery Writers of America. Chains of Command, left unfinished at the time of best-selling author William Caunitz' death in 1998, was completed by Mr. Newman at the estate's request. It was named a 1999 New York Times Notable Book of the Year.
