Description

Set in a shocking New York underworld populated by a constellation of punks, low lifes, thugs, nymphs, vice lords and bag men, Marilyn The Wild is the first book in Jerome Charyn's classic Isaac Quartet. Issac Sidel is the toughest, hardest, most incorruptible police officer in the business, and he runs the meanest kingdom in New York City - the Lower East Side. But his biggest problem is his daughter - Marilyn the Wild. A tough-talking Bronx-Manhattan girl - twice-divorced by twenty five - Marilyn has a taste for the wrong men. And Manfred 'Blue Eyes' Coen, Isaac Sidel's handsome sidekick and spy, is just that sort of man. So when a vindictive teenage gang makes Marilyn the target in a crazed vendetta against her father, the stakes are high for both Isaac and Blue Eyes.

Review quote

"Charyn has trained his prose and makes it perform tricks. It's a New York prose, street smart, sly and full of lurches, like a series of subway stops on the way to hell" New York Times "Brilliant and engrossing and absolute fun to read" Los Angeles Times
