"From the author of SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL and PROHIBITION comes a riveting, gritty and authentic novel of 1930's Manhattan."
NEW YORK CITY – August 1932 Caught between the Great Depression and a massive heatwave, New York is a city on the edge. Businesses close up shop, breadlines grow longer and riots are almost a daily occurrence. But when corrupt NYPD Detective Charlie Doherty is assigned to investigate a dead body in a flophouse, he knows there’s more here than meets the eye.
He quickly discovers that the girl’s death is tied to one of the most powerful families in New York, and a kidnapping case that could tear the city apart.
In a chase that takes Doherty from the mansions of Fifth Avenue, to the slums of the Lower East Side, all the way to City Hall itself, Doherty is in a race against time to find the people responsible for putting his city on a slow burn.

"Slow Burn is crafted with expert acuity! I loved the muscular prose and tight sentences, which made the read extremely fast and awe-inspiring. This is why McCauley is an award-winning writer of crime fiction. He’s a pro.
"Slow Burn is historically precise and accurate. It grabbed hold of me. It was a fascinating journey into 1932 NYC. The stakes were high. The scenes and characters were developed so well, I felt like I was there in real time. It was entertainingly awesome! Read this book! You will be glad you did!"
