Description

Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as an "utterly irresistible heroine," Darlene O'Hara--the brilliant, hard-living, obsessive, and somewhat self-destructive detective introduced in Peter de Jonge's acclaimed crime fiction masterwork Shadows Still Remain--returns in Buried on Avenue B.

An edgy and suspenseful noir thriller, Buried on Avenue B traverses the gritty landscape of New York's Lower East Side and the more sordid corners of Sarasota, Florida, as a gruesome and unexpected discovery in a makeshift Alphabet City grave heats up a 17-year-old cold case.

James Patterson calls Darlene O'Hara "one of the freshest, hippest detective creations in many a year," and the New York Times has described Peter de Jonge's writing as "in the noirish, character-driven vein of Dennis Lehane or Michael Connelly." For fans of serious crime fiction, Peter de Jonge is a must-read, and Detective Darlene O'Hara is cop to be reckoned with.

Back cover copy

A home nurse shows up at Homicide South and reports a confession to NYPD Detective Darlene O'Hara. Gus Henderson, a former junkie suffering from Alzheimer's, claims that 17 years ago, he murdered his partner and buried him in a park on Avenue B. When the police reluctantly agree to excavate, they find a body--just not the one they were looking for.

The cops unearth the skeleton of a young boy, neatly dressed and buried ceremoniously. O'Hara must now find the murderer of a child, and the trail leads from the seediest corners of the city to a sleepy retirement community in Florida.

Driving headlong into the urban underbelly, O'Hara uncovers a criminal tribe who preys only on the weak, but can she stop the cycle before another child is lost?
