Central Park West also brims with references to otherwise obscure or subtle features of the law and prosecutorial practice, particularly in New York. Frenchie is scheduled to testify today, after which he'll enter the witness protection (WITSEC) program. Horticultural Faux Pas (plants out of season or growing zones, like daffodils in autumn or bougainvillea in Alaska): NO But I had to look up the garden-like Pomander Walk to see if it was a real place.

The headline on the review over at Bloomberg was similarly to the point: “Former FBI Director James Comey Has Written a Very Bad Crime Novel.The gripping crime fiction debut from former FBI director James Comey takes readers deep inside the world of lawyers and investigators working to solve a murder while navigating the treacherous currents of modern politics and the mob. Early on, a former state governor - one who keeps his lips zipped but articles of his clothing not so much - is found dead of a suicide that turns out to be murder. Comey was a registered Republican for most of his life, but has recently described himself as unaffiliated.

These agents blend into the background to such an extent that it’s possible that half of the people in a restaurant are there to eavesdrop on the conversation of a suspect, and all of the vehicles on the street are there to follow him when he leaves. By itself, this would not be a particularly bad outline for a crime novel, but many of the details are absurd. Elsewhere in the book, a lawyer appears to outmaneuver his opponent in court and his internal monologue is actually presented to the reader as “How you like them apples? Despite these considerable problems, the result is still a tolerable legal procedural grounded by Comey’s undeniable expertise in federal investigations, which tend to be much more boring than the public thinks, even when the investigation is about murder. Federal prosecutor Nora Carleton is leading the high-profile mafia affiliated case against Dominic “The Nose” D’Amico.Nora is working her dream job, while trying to raise her young daughter with the help of her mother. When she is able to nail something down, she will not only have to convince her superiors, but the prosecution, who are sure they can get a conviction in state court. Lots of bad guys/gals in this story of a murder that turned out not to be as simple as it appeared, and an interesting portrayal of some all-too-close connections between politicians and criminals.
