Red on Red is a gritty noir detective novel by Edward Conlon, a detective with the New York City Police Department and Conlon writes about what he knows best!
Red on Red is a dark psychological story centered on the shooting death of a young man who is mistaken for his criminal brother, which leads to more death and anger. The other mysteries he deals with include an immigrant suicide, a serial rapist, and a Catholic schoolgirl…all of which provide a glimpse of the seedier side of this big city. The characters are finely drawn but always a little beyond our complete understanding. The main character struggles with his job, his personal life, and his partner – his complete opposite. Although dark and sometimes confusing, this book is hard to put down.
