Crime reporter Mike Kincaid faces the biggest challenge in his career as he attempts to help solve a case that takes him from the glitz of one of New York City's most successful magazines to the smart set of New York State's Dutchess County
Liz Smith called Peter McCabe's account of the fall of CBS Morning News, Bad News at Black Rock, "A good example of the panic and ruthlessness and dementia behind the scenes [of a morning news show]." The Houston Post called it "juicy and gossipy." The San Diego Tribune said, "What a juicy story." Now McCabe turns his phenomenal talent to City of Lies, a page-turning suspense novel of passion and crime intertwined.In an apartment on New York's Upper West Side the police find snuff films, half a kilo of coke, and a body. For crime reporter Mike Kincaid, helping to solve the case will prove to be one of the biggest challenges of his career, taking him from the glitz of a successful magazine to the smart set of New York State's Dutchess County. Finding himself more and more embroiled in the circumstances surrounding the murder, Kincaid begins a forbidden sexual encounter with one of the case's prime suspects. Soon he is as much a part of the mystery's fast-unfolding drama as are the widow of a highly placed government official or the seemingly innocuous group of former Long Island high school students who understand the shocking truth.City of Lies is the story of lonely men and women looking for love in the night of the city; of dangerous secrets, unexpected deceptions, and difficult moral choices. People either love or are afraid of the big city; now City of Lies re-creates its exhilaration, and its...menace.
