Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“The story and the characters will hook you, and Coleman’s lightly warped take on the world will make you laugh, dark as the tale is.”—Marilyn Dahl, Shelf Awareness

“Whenever our customers are looking for a new series to read, they often leave with a copy of Walking the Perfect Square. It has easily been our best-selling backlist title. Thank you, Busted Flush, for bringing this classic ‘Moe’ back into print!”—Gary Shulze, Once Upon a Crime Mystery Bookstore (Minneapolis, Minnesota)

“Moe is a fine sleuth. Coleman is an excellent writer.”—Publishers Weekly

Introducing Brooklyn private eye Moe Prager in his first acclaimed crime novel.

Synopsis:

Back in print, the first book in Reed Farrel Coleman's two-time Edgar Award-nominated author of the Moe Prager private eye series. Recently retired due to a freak accident, NYPD officer Moe Prager is lost. In pain and without the job he loves, Moe relunctantly settles on the notion of going into the wine business with his brother. When a suburban college student vanishes off the streets of Manhattan, Prager's universe is turned upside down and his life changed forever. Hired by the student's desperate family, Moe plunges deep into the world of New York's punk underground, sex clubs, and biker bars. Politicians, journalists, and crooked cops seem hell-bent on stopping him in his tracks. Set in the gritty city streets of the late seventies and the present day, Walking the Perfect Square is a unique mystery that delivers a compelling look at one man's efforts to find a man who was never really there and to protect his family from an unbearable truth.

This is the first of Coleman's books that I've read and it was everything had heard it would be. This is a well plotted, well written mystery with none of the over-the-top cinematic pomposity that ruins so many mysteries.
