Summary:

In a stately West Village townhouse, a wealthy socialite and her secretary are murdered. In the 24 hours that follow, a flurry of activity circles around their shocking deaths: The head of one of the city's last tabloids stops the presses. A cop investigates the killing. A reporter chases the story. A disgraced hedge fund manager flees the country. An Iraq War vet seeks revenge. And an angry young extremist plots a major catastrophe.

The City is many things: a proving ground, a decadent playground, or a palimpsest of memories-a historic metropolis eclipsed by modern times. As much a thriller as it is a gripping portrait of the city of today, TABLOID CITY is a new fiction classic from the writer who has captured it perfectly for decades.

    I was looking forward to listening to this title. I couldn't get past the first CD and I'm usually very committed to what I'm listening to even if it doesn't start out great. Don't bother with this one.

    I'm a fan of Pete Hamill's writing, but this book just stinks. It's trite and formulaic - like an old grade B movie. I never made it beyond CD #1
