"In the darkness of a December morning in lower Manhattan's Fulton Fish Market a mob rip-off is under way: Thousands of pounds of fish are calmly 'tapped' - stolen - from wholesalers on the street. It's the price of doing business. But detectives Joe Gregory and Anthony Ryan have not come to Peck Slip to stop fish tapping. They've come to watch a fifty-gallon drum being dumped into the East River by a mobster in a Mets hat. Convinced they're seeing a burial, Gregory and Ryan call in police divers and get a surprise. The dive brings up a barrel, but it's not theirs. Instead, this one is old and rusty, and inside is the body of a man in blue - a cop named Jinx Mulgrew, who disappeared ten years ago."; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
