Item Details

From a prizewinning author and, in Elmore Leonard's words, "a knockout writer, " a beautifully written, and gripping tale of a determined investigator who reopens an unresolved case of double homicide in New York nearly thirty years after the brutal event. Philip Gourevitch vividly evokes the almost vanished gangland in New York in the sixties, and carries us deep into the lives and minds, the passions and perplexities, of two extraordinary men who embody opposing but quintessentially American codes of being -- that of the lawman (Andy Rosenzwieg) and that of the outlaw (Frankie Koehler). With A Cold Case Gourevitch masterfully transforms a criminal investigation into a searching literary reckoning with the urges that drive one man to murder and another to hunt murderers.
