New York City is the best and worst of what humanity has to offer. When things go wrong, its citizens call the NYPD. When things go wrong in weird, dark, unexplainable ways, the NYPD calls Detectives Frank Mallory and Alberto “Gunner” Gennaro, whether they like it or not. In this collection of crisp, sometimes brutal short stories, the detectives face modern versions of classic horrors, take on expressions of the seven deadly sins, and are forced to find ways to hold onto their souls when it all hits the fan.From housing projects to Yankee Stadium to Harlem to the Village to a mid-town bar on Christmas Eve to the Port Authority Bus Terminal during a city-crippling, hellacious blizzard, Mallory and Gunner take on all comers; the weird, the uncanny, the unnatural, and the just pure damned evil. And it costs them more with each case.
