Book Giveaway ~ Shadows Still Remain by Peter De Jonge ~ ARC



Shadows Still Remain: A Novel by Peter De Jonge (ARC) ~

New York City, 2005. Thanksgiving weekend. Tower Record is still in business and topless Kate Moss peers down from a billboard over rain-splattered Houston. Street. Escaping a troubled past, Francesca Pena came to the city and reinvented herself as a successful. charismatic student. Yet after a night of drinking, Pena has gone missing. Detective Darlene O'Hara of the Seventh Precinct in Lower Manhattan "catches" the case, and with her partner, Serge "K" Krekorian, sets out to find her. When Pena's body, encased in a plastic and carved up like a totem pole, is discovered in a men's bathroom in East River Park, the case turns high profile, and Homicide, led by legendary detective Patrick Cooney, is called in.

But the thirty-four year old O'Hara, who has an eighteen year old son she saddled with the name Axl Rose O'Hara, and whose binge drinking exacerbates the massive chip on her shoulder, refuses to let go. Risking both her and K's careers, she secretly pursues her own investigation, a hunt that leads from NYU's ivory towers to Brooklyn tattoo parlors, from a skanky strip club to a whitewashed boutique run by a Korean madam. But O'Hara has to move fast, because Cooney and the NYPD are about to make a devastating mistake that will leave the real killer free. (From the back cover)
