It's 1983, but beneath the facade of junk bonds and easy money, New York remains a gritty metropolis. Moe Prager, ex-NYPD cop turned reluctant PI, is too busy reeling from a family tragedy to see what's coming. Moira Heaton, a young intern for an up-and-coming politico, has fallen off the face of the earth. Although there is no evidence linking the politician to her disappearance, vicious rumors swirl about his involvement. When Moe finally chips beneath the surface of the case, he stumbles upon the James Deans-a long-forgotten Jersey street gang-and a heinous, even older crime. With twists and turns galore and Moe's inimitable voice, The James Deans is an absorbing page-turner that will add to the burgeoning reputation of one of today's most promising writers.Coleman, Reed Farrel is the author of 'James Deans ', published 2005 under ISBN 9780452286504 and ISBN 0452286506.
