Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as an "utterly irresistible heroine," Darlene O'Hara--the brilliant, hard-living, obsessive, and somewhat self-destructive detective introduced in Peter de Jonge's acclaimed crime fiction masterwork Shadows Still Remain--returns in Buried on Avenue B.

An edgy and suspenseful noir thriller, Buried on Avenue B traverses the gritty landscape of New York's Lower East Side and the more sordid corners of Sarasota, Florida, as a gruesome and unexpected discovery in a makeshift Alphabet City grave heats up a 17-year-old cold case.

James Patterson calls Darlene O'Hara "one of the freshest, hippest detective creations in many a year," and the New York Times has described Peter de Jonge's writing as "in the noirish, character-driven vein of Dennis Lehane or Michael Connelly." For fans of serious crime fiction, Peter de Jonge is a must-read, and Detective Darlene O'Hara is cop to be reckoned with.

A very slow book. And it never picks up. The plot is minimal. Even at the end you wonder why this took so long to unravels. Much ado about nothing. Could have been much more punchy. Again, a real slow burner.

Well done mystery, straightforward story-telling with all the expected unexpected twists, driven by pretty decent character exploration. After the fact it feels a bit contrived (same as for previous book "shadows still remain") but enjoyable none the less and I look forward to the next installment.
