"Taylor hits the bull's-eye .. . riveting." --William Martin, New York Times bestselling author

Praise for Night Life

"A hair-raising, heart-stopping bullet-train of a novel with action and atmosphere to burn." --Douglas Preston, New York Times bestselling author of The Kraken Project

"A gripping and evocative thriller." --Joseph Finder, New York Times bestselling author of The Fixer

"With high-tension suspense, ingenious plotting, and characters you really care about, Night Life is an honest-to-God, up-all-night, one-sitting read." --David Hagberg, New York Times bestselling author of End Game

"Smart, capable, honest and all cop, NYPD Detective Michael Cassidy is a cross between Jack Reacher and Philip Marlow, only tougher." --Stephen Coonts, New York Times bestselling author of The Art of War

"The suspense mounts with the body count. Readers will want to see more of the distinctive Cassidy, whose wealthy background as the son of a Broadway producer puts him at odds with his fellow cops." --Publishers Weekly

"Set against the backdrop of the Cold War and the rising power of Sen. Joseph McCarthy, this debut novel's atmosphere is suffused with paranoia and bitterness. With a strong opening and definite sense of place, Taylor has much to offer as a writer." --Library Journal

"Mixing fictional and reality-based characters and providing a wealth of period detail . . . Taylor makes a strong debut with the first in a series featuring a hard-edged but properly vulnerable detective." --Kirkus Reviews

"It's hard to beat postwar New York for noir atmosphere with a touch of glamour behind the menace. This one's all about mood, and Taylor brings it." --Booklist
