New York City, 1954. The Cold War is heating up, Senator Joe McCarthy is running a witch hunt for communists in America, the newly formed CIA is fighting a turf battle with the FBI to see who will be the primary United States intelligence agency, and the bodies of murdered young men are turning up all over the city.

I enjoyed this mystery very much. The characters were fleshed out, dialogue was credible, the story kept me hooked, and the historical aspect was interesting - specifically regarding the political atmosphere of the Red Scare, but also in general through the depiction of life in NYC in 1950's. I will seek out more written by Mr. Taylor (and narrated by Mr. Szarabajka - fantastic).
