The Fairfax Incident

JAMES HICKS, 3

"Doherty finds himself against not only some of the most powerful people in New York City, but against the most evil men in the world."

Manhattan, 1933. Charlie Doherty may have been kicked off the force after The Grand Central Massacre, but thanks to a wealthy benefactor, his private detective business is booming. Catering to the city’s wealthy elite, Doherty is making a good living chasing down wayward spouses and runaway socialites when the case of a lifetime lands in his lap. 

 Mrs. Fairfax, a wealthy widow, hires Doherty to prove her husband’s suicide wasn’t actually a suicide. It was murder. At his benefactor’s urging, Doherty takes the case. He expects to pocket a nice chunk of change to prove what everyone already knows: Walter Fairfax walked into his office in the Empire State Building one morning, took a phone call, and shot himself. But Charlie took the widow’s money, so he begins to dig. He quickly finds out there is more to the Fairfax incident than a simple suicide. Before long, he discovers that Mr. Fairfax was leading a double life; running with a dangerous crowd that has a sinister agenda that threatens to plunge Charlie’s city – and his country – into another war. In an investigation that quickly involves global implications, Doherty finds himself against not only some of the most powerful people in New York City, but against the most evil men in the world.

"Another book in Mr McCauleys Charlie Doherty series. No longer a police detective, Charlie has landed on his feet thanks to a mysterious benefactor named Mr Harriman. He is hired to look into an obvious suicide, who’s widow believes he would never do such a thing. Set in the 1930’s, Mr McCauley captures the tone of the era perfectly. Good and believable characters and even pre-war Nazis to boot. Any book by Mr McCauley is excellent, my favorite being Devil Dogs of Belleau Wood, which covers Charley’s adventures in WWI. Highly recommended."

"Absolutely classic New York noir. Fans of McCauley's other two series (which The Fairfax Incident links together) will love this latest offering and new readers will be impressed with McCauley's attention to atmosphere and ode to spot-on classic crime writing. A fast, immersive read that I highly recommend to any reader of crime fiction."
