From the author of the New York Times-bestselling Robert B. Parker's Blind Spot
Ex-NYPD cop turned P.I. and entrepreneur, Moe Prager is faced with a gut-wrenching case. The apparent suicide of his old friend and NYPD Chief of Detectives, Larry McDonald, forces Moe back onto the decaying Coney Island streets he patrolled when he was in uniform. But now, beneath the boardwalk and behind the rusted and crumbling rides of the midway, he finds a trail of death, betrayal, and corruption reaching back to 1972. As Faulkner once said, ''The past is never dead. It isn’t even past.'' So it goes for Moe Prager in Soul Patch.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Some books are favorites because they are well-written, lyrical almost; others because they're fast paced--they keep you turning the pages; and still others because of unforgetable characters. SOUL PATCH is a winner with all three. Mystery fans will love it. Anyone familiar with Brooklyn, especially the Coney Island that used to be, will enjoy the trek down memory lane. And, of course, Moe Prager fans will get to see Moe in action again . Definitely worth reading. Reed Coleman has a hit!
