Something is rotting beneath the surface of the SoHo neighborhood of New York City. Behind all the glamour and high style the art world is not a safe place. Then one day Amanda Oliver is brutally murdered in her apartment, as one of the leading icons of the New York art world it is a major loss. With her husband suffering from a disease of the brain that is robbing his memories, it is up to Jackson Wyeth to start digging for the truth and into the seedy, and dangerous, underbelly of a city living on the edge and a world full of excesses. With suspects galore, can Jackson find the killer before they strike again to hide the evidence?
When you read crime noir stories, whether old classics or new tales, you expect a certain style. You expect the story to be compact, and to move at a quick pace. Sadly this book lacks both of those elements. It is too long, this would have worked a lot better if it was about 100 pages shorter; instead things get dragged out that do not need be.
