It’s August in New York, and the steaming garbage littering the streets isn’t the only thing that stinks.Civilian investigator Leonard Mitchell can keep his job as the new head of the Department to Investigate Misconduct and Corruption only by successfully prosecuting veteran cop Ralph Mulino.Mulino shot an armed man on a dark night; he didn’t know the man was a fellow cop. Now, to keep his badge and his freedom, he has to make his case to the investigator. But the gun Mulino saw in his victim’s hand has disappeared.As Mitchell digs deeper into Mulino’s claim, it becomes clear that the “misconduct and corruption” infecting New York City go far beyond the actions of one allegedly dirty cop. Murder and sabotage force Mulino and Mitchell into an uneasy partnership to uncover the truth and protect the city they are both sworn to serve.Assuming, of course, they can stay alive…

Andy Destra is a mostly honest cop in the most notoriously corrupt and crime-ridden city in America: Auction City. After discovering explosive information that reveals corruption within the highest levels of the police department, Andy is kicked off the force, framed, and disgraced, left to wage a lonely one-man crusade against conspiracies he can’t prove.Andy’s investigation plunges him into a blackly comic maelstrom of one-armed gang members, slick pickpockets, criminal syndicates, hired mercenaries, escaped convicts, sewer dwellers, and one sinister ice cream truck. At the same time, he must contend with a mystery closer to home: the true identity of his parents, his most unshakeable obsession. Understanding their past may be the key to Auction City’s future as it teeters on the brink of chaos.If Andy can’t solve this case, the Floodgate will fail…and his city will burn.

“Wolfe is our Melville.” ―Ursula K. Le GuinGrafton, an American writer of travel guides, needs a new place to explore, and he chooses a small and obscure Eastern European country. No travel books exist about the land beyond the mountains, so he sees it as his golden opportunity. But the moment Grafton crosses the border he is in trouble, much more than he could have anticipated or imagined. His passport is confiscated, and then he is detained for not having it. He is released into the custody of a local family, seduced by the wife, and again detained. In prison he is recruited by the enigmatic and powerful Legion of the Light as a broadcaster of propaganda.It becomes evident to him that there are supernatural agencies at work here, but they are not in some ways as threatening as the brute forces of bureaucracy and corruption that Grafton encounters in this strange land. Is our hero in fact a spy for the mysterious JAKA? Or is he an innocent citizen caught in a Kafkaesque trap?Gene Wolfe keeps us guessing until the very end, and after.
