First time in paperback! New foreword by Shamus Award winner Peter Spiegelman. In Redemption Street, retired NYPD officer and newly minted PI Moe Prager, travels up to a decaying Borscht Belt hotel to uncover the truth behind a decades old fire that killed seventeen people, including his high school crush. Away from his beloved Brooklyn and out of his element, Moe finds that the locals aren't as eager to dredge up the painful past or to stir up the embers of that long dead fire as he seems to be. In fact the cast of locals -- a washed up comedian, an ambitious politician, a corrupt cop, a pint-sized Hitler, the leader of a mysterious Jewish cult -- seem rather intent on doing their level best to make certain the circumstances sur-rounding the fire stay buried along with the charred bodies of the dead. Moe Prager's gift, however, is coaxing secrets out of the silent past. But will the truth lead to Redemption Street or his own dead end?Coleman, Reed Farrel is the author of 'Redemption Street', published 2008 under ISBN 9780979270901 and ISBN 0979270901.
