Hell's Kitchen

Every New York City neighborhood has a story, but what John Pellam uncovers in Hell's Kitchen has a darkness all its own. The Hollywood location scout and former stuntman is in the Big Apple hoping to capture the unvarnished memories of longtime Kitchen residents, such as Ettie Washington, in a no-budget documentary film. But when a suspicious fire ravages the elderly woman's crumbling tenement, Pellam realizes that someone might want the past to stay buried.

Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling author of The Empty Chair and The Devil's Teardrop is back, displaying his "ticking-bomb suspense" (People) in this never-before-published thriller.

Every New York City neighborhood has a story, but what John Pellam uncovers in Hell's Kitchen has a darkness all its own. The Hollywood location scout and former stuntman is in the Big Apple hoping to capture the unvarnished memories of longtime Kitchen residents, such as Ettie Washington, in a no-budget documentary film. But when a suspicious fire ravages the elderly woman's crumbling tenement, Pellam realizes that someone might want the past to stay buried.

As more buildings and lives go up in flames, Pellam takes to the streets, seeking the twisted pyromaniac who sells services to the highest bidder. But Pellam is unaware that the fires are merely flickering preludes to the arsonist's ultimate masterpiece, a conflagration of nearly unimaginable proportion, with Hell's Kitchen - and John Pellam - at its blackened and searing epicenter.

    I mostly listen to books while exercising, which pretty much explains all of the action/thrillers on my list.

    "Good if creepy story"

    I debated between a three and a four. This is not great, but a good story about an interesting neighborhood in NYC - a part of the city I only rarely visited when I lived there and about which I knew very little. It is a bit violent, perhaps gratuitously, but it was a fun listen. I listen to keep myself entertained while running, doing yard work etc. So I'm not after great literature, at least not most of the time. And this kept my interest.
