Night Watch
by David C. Taylor

New York, 1956. A couple walking through Central Park on a fall evening are confronted by a hansom cab driver, only to kill him and casually walk away. Who are the couple and did they know the man?

A man commits suicide by throwing himself through a hotel window. His colleagues claim he was depressed – but is there more to it than that?

Before Detective Michael Cassidy even begins investigating these cases, he is threatened by an unknown man – the reasons for which are unclear.

Are all three incidents connected? If so, how, and will Cassidy live long enough to find out before his would-be assassin claims his life?


“A solidly constructed, satisfyingly old-school hard-boiled series, distinguished by its loving and vivid evocation of ’50s New York”


“Gripping … Taylor does a fine job of summoning up a bygone New York with all its fascinating cultural and political shadings”
