Gabe Driscoll, chief of internal affairs for the New York City police department, stands in the city morgue, watching an autopsy. His interest is more than professional. The body is that of activist priest Frank Redmond, who along with Driscoll belonged to a championship swim relay team at a Jesuit high school in the 1950s. More than three decades later, Redmond has gone off a Harlem rooftop a few blocks from his church, and the surviving members of the team—Driscoll and Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Andrew Troy—find themselves reunited in a bizarre new race to figure out how and why Redmond died. Was it suicide, as police and diocesan investigations have summarily concluded? Or was he pushed—and if so, by whom?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A glorious epic…This is the best novel of all Daley works, far more serious and precious than an ordinary mystery. It demands your attention and captures your imagination.” Cleveland Plain Dealer
“Daley, author of Prince of the City and twenty-five other works of both nonfiction and fiction, does some of his best work here. His characteristic strengths—a palpably vivid evocation of New York City and an impeccable knowledge of police procedure—buttress a melancholy tale of four intertwined lives, choices made and dismissed as friendships ebb and flow…Think Mystic River, but maybe better.” Booklist (starred review)
“Daley is at his best here, delving into the personal life of a priest while showing us the political antics necessary to surviving within the structure of a major police department. A consummate storyteller, he hints at the stark reality of a religious life and the undercurrents of interpersonal relationships. The unexpected and thought-provoking ending will delight readers who like stories with depth and solutions that go beyond black and white.” Library Journal
“Richly entertaining.” New York Times Book Review, praise for Wall of Brass
