about this item

La nueva novela de Richard Price, autor de La vida fácil y ganador de un premio Edgar como guionista de la serie The Wire, relata la historia de un policía de Nueva York asediado por un asesinato sin resolver.«La novela criminal del año: cruda, valiente e imposible de dejar.»Stephen KingA sus cuarenta años, Billy Graves ocupa el puesto de sargento de policía del turno de noche en Manhattan y ya solo aspira a hacer bien su trabajo y llevar una vida sosegada al lado de su familia. Han transcurrido dos décadas desde los violentos sucesos policiales de los noventa, cuando Billy era el benjamín de una división contra el crimen del Bronx, y a pesar de que con el paso de los años la mayoría de sus antiguos compañeros acabaron por abandonar el Cuerpo, no han dejado de verse porque todos comparten una marca indeleble del pasado: cada uno de ellos lleva a sus espaldas un caso a cuyoculpable no lograron conducir ante la justicia.Durante una noche de guardia, Billy recibe el aviso de la muerte de un hombre en una estación de trenes del centro de la ciudad. Se trata de Jeffrey Bannion, uno de aquellos criminales que quedaron impunes.ENGLISH DESCRIPTIONThe electrifying tale of a New York City police detective under siege-by an unsolved murder, by his own dark past, and by a violent stalker seeking revenge.Back in the run-and-gun days of the mid-1990s, when a young Billy Graves worked in the South Bronx as part of an aggressive anti-crime unit known as the Wild Geese, he made headlines by accidentally shooting a ten-year-old boy while struggling with an angel-dusted berserker on a crowded street. Branded as a loose cannon by his higher-ups, Billy spent years enduring one dead-end posting after another. Now in his early forties, he has somehow survived and become a sergeant in Manhattan Night Watch, a small team of detectives charged with responding to all post-midnight felonies from Wall Street to Harlem. Mostly, his unit acts as little more than a set-up crew for the incoming shift, but after years in police purgatory, Billy is content simply to do his job.Then comes a call that changes everything: Night Watch is summoned to the four a.m. fatal slashing of a man in Penn Station, and this time Billy's investigation moves beyond the usual handoff to the day tour. And when he discovers that the victim was once a suspect in the unsolved murder of a twelve-year-old boy-a savage case with connections to the former members of the Wild Geese-the bad old days are back in Billy's life with a vengeance, tearing apart enduring friendships forged in the urban trenches and even threatening the safety of his family.
