    After a shootout claims the life of his partner in a condemned tenement building on Pearl Street, Detective John Tallow unwittingly stumbles across an apartment stacked high with guns. When examined, each weapon leads to a different, previously unsolved murder. Someone has been killing people for 20 years or more and storing the weapons together for some inexplicable purpose. Confronted with the sudden emergence of hundreds of unsolved homicides, Tallow soon discovers that he's walked into a veritable deal with the devil.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. It had twists, turns, doublebacks, and lots of research went into it that he shared without being didactic. The ancient history of Manhattan fit smoothly into the narrative.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Ellis wove new (to me) ideas into the narrative and still was able to keep it naturalistic, unlike his work in other genres.


    Have you listened to any of Reg E. Cathey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. He reminded me a lot of George Guidall, who did excellent work in the first version of American Gods.


    Any additional comments?

    I normally listen to books with a fantastical aspect to them, e.g. zombie apocoplyses, space operas, etc., and was expecting a mind-bending story like so many of his others, but I was pleasantly surprised by the lack.
