With a drastic change coming to her personal life and an attempt to process everything taking place, Nora will have to find a way to convict the accused and bring this mess to a close before anyone else dies. Benny has seen it all, once the youngest detective in NYPD history, he has dedicated much of his life to investigating and understanding Cosa Nostra.

Central Park West also brims with references to otherwise obscure or subtle features of the law and prosecutorial practice, particularly in New York.I do feel like, at times, it was an overload of information, but this was a page-turner and I can't wait to see what's next for James Comey's dive into writing. Many thanks to the publisher, via NetGalley, for the opportunity to dive into a pre-release copy of this one. But if I'm being completely honest, the thing I liked best about Central Park West were the details.

If you’re a fan of a good mystery, or of Steve Cavanagh’s Eddie Flynn novels, you will definitely want to check out Central Park West. The most important takeaway, though - at least for me - is if the FBI wants you, there aren't many places you can hide (not even a Starbucks).

In addition to showing some of the the inner workings of the Southern District of New York, Comey's novel highlights the rivalry between the Manhattan D. The story had lots of exposition of explaining, which I felt was unnecessary and weighed down the action. She and her team work hard to put away a mob hit woman who not only killed the governor but has a long list of hits.

Nora Carleton, a single mom struggling a bit to make ends meet while she takes on the world of organized crime, and her very personable (and formidable) investigator, Benny Dugan. However, the intelligence of the author and his sophistication of today's world of crime and legalities make this novel a big yes. The back-and-forths also showcase the conflict among federal and state prosecutors, none of whom seem to much enjoy sharing (again, a nod, I'm sure, to reality but something I've never quite understood; if our goals are the same, why can't we all hold hands and play nice)? There are also a couple of unexpected twists, and an ending I didn’t see coming (not unusual for me).However, things take a turn when the defendant passes along a note, promising some information on a local case.
