A gritty, high voltage novel, packed with interwoven story lines and surprising twists, New York Dead by Stuart Woods draws the reader into its stunning tale of intricate suspense and leads to a heart stopping climax you won't soon forget.
With New York Dead Stuart Woods delivers his most exciting work, this one set on the meanest streets of New York City, the canyons and avenues of the posh Upper East Side.
Everyone is always telling Stone Barrington that he's too smart to be a cop, but it's pure luck that places him on the streets in the dead of night, just in time to witness the horrifying incident that turns his life inside out.
Suddenly he is on the front page of every New York newspaper, and his life is hopelessly entwined in the increasingly shocking life (and perhaps death) of Sasha Nijinsky, the country's hottest and most beautiful television anchorwoman.
The pressures from the press are exceeded only by those from the N.Y.P.D. brass and city hall. No matter where he turns, the case is waiting for him, haunting his nights and turning his days into a living hell. Stone finds himself caught in a perilous web of unspeakable crimes, dangerous friends, and sexual depravity that has throughout it one common thread: Sasha.
