Both a portrait of the modern city and a gripping thriller, Tabloid City is a classic New York novel from the writer who captured the city for decades.​ In a stately West Village town house, a wealthy socialite and her secretary are murdered. In the 24 hours that follow, a flurry of activity surrounds their shocking deaths. The head of one of the city's last tabloids stops the presses. A cop investigates the killing. A reporter chases the story. A disgraced hedge fund manager flees the country. An Iraq War vet seeks revenge. And an angry young extremist plots a major catastrophe. The city is many things: a proving ground, a decadent carnival, or a palimpsest of memories -- a historic metropolis eclipsed by modern times.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Pete HamillPublisher: Back Bay BooksPublished: 05/22/2012ISBN: 9780316020763Pages: 278Weight: 0.59lbsSize: 8.26h x 5.53w x 1.01dReview Citations: New York Times Book Review 06/17/2012 pg. 28
