Harlem, just before midnight. A New York Police Department cop and his partner pull up in front of a tenement. A short while later, Sergeant Brian O’Malley is dead from a stab wound to the jugular, and a prostitute has fallen down an airshaft to oblivion. A few years after his father is given a hero’s funeral, Brian Thomas O’Malley Jr. graduates from the police academy. As he rises quickly through the ranks of the NYPD, O’Malley discovers that some secrets are better left buried. Through the ensuing decades, as he raises a family of his own, O’Malley must cope with the fallout of a cover-up, until a fresh crime brings the plot full circle. Will the son have to pay for the sins of the father? This ebook features an illustrated biography of Dorothy Uhnak including rare images from the author’s estate.
