Overview

When a friend’s crime spree threatens his legal empire, a powerful New York attorney must race to stop it—before at least one of them winds up dead
Edward Parkchester, or Parky, “the black eagle,” is the most successful criminal lawyer in town. He looms over Manhattan from his lair in Sugar Hill and has only one client, Byron Abando, a Mafia prince with a Phi Beta Kappa key. But the black eagle suddenly finds his empire in ruins. Freeman Faulks, a detective who helped steer Parky out of a troubled childhood at the Abraham Lincoln projects, has gone on a crime spree, sticking up a bunch of liquor stores. Parky has to find Freeman, but first he will have to match wits with his own boss, Byron Abando, and with Sandra Sutpen, the high priestess of federal prosecutors—who likes to toss her underpants at enemies and the men she loves.  There’s something sinister behind Faulks’s crime spree, and if Parky doesn’t move fast enough, he might not make it out of Manhattan alive.

About the Author

Jerome Charyn (b. 1937) is the critically acclaimed author of nearly fifty books. Born in the Bronx, he attended Columbia College, where he fell in love with the works of William Faulkner and James Joyce. After graduating, he took a job as a playground director and wrote in his spare time, producing his first novel, a Lower East Side fairytale called Once Upon a Droshky, in 1964. In 1974 Charyn published Blue Eyes, his first Isaac Sidel mystery. Begun as a distraction while trying to finish a different book, this first in a series of Sidel novels introduced the eccentric, near-mythic detective and his bizarre cast of sidekicks. Charyn followed the character through Citizen Sidel (1999), which ends with his antihero making a run at the White House. Charyn, who divides his time between New York and Paris, is also accomplished at table tennis, and once ranked amongst France’s top 10 percent of ping-pong players.
