James Comey had a wonderful history working within the FBI on both criminal and legal matters, though his firing left him with a fair bit of time on his hands.

Later, when he testifies in court, he looks “like he’d just walked off the runway at a Milan fashion show. All the evidence, including damning videos and the testimony of the building’s doorman, suggests that the culprit is none other than Burke’s most-recent ex-wife, Kyra.S. presidential election, particularly with regard to his public communications, was highly controversial. Central Park West also brims with references to otherwise obscure or subtle features of the law and prosecutorial practice, particularly in New York. The “Luv Guv’s” ex-wife has been accused of the murder, but Nora’s federal defendant in another case opens a suspicion that maybe the swine-ish politician was knocked off by the mob.

These agents blend into the background to such an extent that it’s possible that half of the people in a restaurant are there to eavesdrop on the conversation of a suspect, and all of the vehicles on the street are there to follow him when he leaves. S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York from January 2002 to December 2003, and subsequently the United States Deputy Attorney General from December 2003 to August 2005 in the administration of President George W. Statements from Trump and the White House suggested that he had been dismissed to ease the "pressure" Trump was under due to the Russia investigation. So if you're wanted by the law that badly, they will go out of their way to set up an entire restaurant where the other "patrons", "waiters", "chefs", etc.In the same vein, after Burke escapes conviction by the Manhattan district attorney’s office, the junior FBI agent, who is Black, observes, “Innocent white people getting prosecuted? There is also an amusing and relatable episode (for lawyers, at least) involving a note that is passed to Carleton by her supervisor in the middle of a trial that she hopes will get her out of a tough spot but that turns out to be totally useless. Though I didn't get the ending I expected, I wasn't too far off the mark, and the journey from beginning to end was fascinating. Carleton’s supervisor, for instance, is a Puerto Rican lesbian who is described as a “ball of energy and humor.

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. He has me anticipating the next book he is working on, and I will be the first in line to grab a copy. However, the definition of a thriller is a play, film or novel with an exciting plot involving crime or espionage.Sorry about the italics, but the overuse of that word (along with "poignant", for instance) kind of drive me crazy. The newly divorced Kyra Burke stands accused of murdering her ex-husband, former (disgraced) governor of New York, Tony Burke. where she's preparing to prosecute Dominic "The Nose" D'Amico, a recently made member of the Mafia's Gambino Crime Family. Comey was a registered Republican for most of his life, but has recently described himself as unaffiliated.

If I must carp a bit, I'll say the transition could use a little improvement - in spots, it jumps around a bit. He keeps our attention throughout, the explanations always relevant to the current action, and never feeling shoe-horned into the story. James Comey’s intimate knowledge of law enforcement makes Central Park West a winning legal thriller, but the book is so much more than an insider’s account. I loved the organized crime aspect, the feds against the locals, the loyalty of the mobsters to each other.Comey’s debut offers us ample misdirection along with the kind of twists and turns that keep us turning the pages, in this case furiously. There was plenty of tension to keep the reader on the edge of their seat and the book’s pacing was good.
