Product Details


“Set aside a day for this book, because you’re not going to be doing anything but reading—or should I say, speeding—from first page to last, in the company of some of the most memorable characters we’ve ever met in crime fiction. By turns wry, moving, and gut-punching, Payback is a novel you won’t forget. And as always, Carcaterra’s keen eye and deft style bring New York City to stunning life. A brilliant thriller by one of the all-time greats.”—Jeffery Deaver, #1 internationally bestselling author
“A gritty, old-school crime novel that flat-out delivers the goods. Payback is an engrossing, emotionally satisfying read with good guys you pull for and bad guys you want to plug yourself. No one knows the streets of Manhattan like Lorenzo Carcaterra, and it shows from page one. A stone cold winner!”—Christopher Reich, New York Times bestselling author of The Take and Crown Jewel

“With retired NYPD detective Tank Rizzo at the helm, and the most colorful cast of backup crime fighters you have never seen before, Payback is the kind of brilliantly conceived, high-powered, totally diverting entertainment everyone is looking for these days. On a case that is as down and dirty as it is personal, this is Lorenzo Carcaterra at his best, and that’s saying something!”—Jonathan Santlofer, bestselling author of The Death Artist

“Rambunctious . . . Cases intertwine in an action-filled plot spiced with gangster lore and New York history. Those who like their cop novels to take retribution to wild and wicked extremes will have fun.”—Publishers Weekly
