Publisher Comments:

It flows through the Bronx like a river between banks of faded elegance. And at the end of the avenue called the Grand Concourse is the place people go to die, the Bronx Home for the Aged. The only trouble is the people dying there are going before their time.

Bill Smith has been hired by an old friend to investigate the brutal killing of a young security guard on the Bronx Home grounds. Going undercover, Smith wades out into a sea of violence and lies washing up against the old brick building. When a second murder is committed, Smith knows that there's a method to the madness. With the help of bright, young Chinese-American investigator Lydia Chin, Smith uncovers a web of corruption that's found a home in the Bronx. Now he has to figure out who will die next.

Review:

"First-rate....A good, funky New York P.I. novel." New York Newsday

Review:

"Rozan's first book, China Trade, was a solid piece of work with a new and absorbing voice. Concourse is better." Washington Post Book World

Review:

"Compelling....Concourse sets sharply delineated characters moving through a fully realized place." Robert B. Parker

Review:

"Rich and rewardingly plotted." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Bill Smith and Lydia Chin have a chemistry between them that is as exciting and as electric as any I've ever read. Combine that with S. J. Rozan's sharply drawn portrait of the dark underbelly of New York and you've got a book you won't put down. What a voice!" Steven Womack, award-winning author of Way Past Dead
