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.

What People are Saying About This
"Clarkson writes with fierce reality, pages filled with characters tabloid-fresh, corner dialogue vibrating with the fear which populates the hard zones of the city. new Lots is a roller coaster thrill ride, from the openign riff down to a pulse-shredder of a climax." -- author of Sleepers and Apaches
"Mr. Clarkson is not only a very talented writer, but he has a great feel for the urban jungle... The novel is gritty [and] street wise."
