Both a portrait of the modern city and a gripping thriller, Tabloid City is a classic New York novel from the writer who captured the city for decades.
In a stately West Village town house, a wealthy socialite and her secretary are murdered. In the 24 hours that follow, a flurry of activity surrounds their shocking deaths.
The head of one of the city's last tabloids stops the presses. A cop investigates the killing. A reporter chases the story. A disgraced hedge fund manager flees the country. An Iraq War vet seeks revenge. And an angry young extremist plots a major catastrophe.
The city is many things: a proving ground, a decadent carnival, or a palimpsest of memories — a historic metropolis eclipsed by modern times.
