Detective Neil Hockaday and his pregnant actress wife, Ruby, continue to live in Manhattan's Hell's Kitchen despite its uncertain reputation and sometimes violence. When a mysterious "shadow" viciously murders a rabbi friend there, Hockaday begs to work the case; however, the related gunning down of several men in a religious procession leads the mayor to ask Neil to take charge. The text provides historical background on Hell's Kitchen, sinister otherworldly villains, and typical police department in-fighting and corruption.
With his drinking days behind him, his marriage to actress Ruby Flagg flourishing, and the excitement of a baby on the way, NYPD homicide detective Neil Hockaday is feeling better about the world and his place in it. That changes quickly when a young rabbi is brutally butchered in front of 14 horrified witnesses, none of whom can identify the assailant. Then Hock notices an eerie similarity between aspects of the murder and the plot of a play Ruby is reading by an anonymous author. Hardback. Great condition.
