A young actress plummets through the sky, slamming down onto the roof of a parked car. Detectives Anthony Ryan and Joe Gregory believe the Broadway star's "suicide" may actually be something more sinister. The main suspect is a big-time Broadway producer with a shady past. But who is the mysterious figure known only as the "Juggler" -- and what connection does he have to the dead girl? From the back alleys of Broadway to the vanishing Irish communities of Yonkers, Ryan and Gregory work through family secrets and tarnished reputations to find out what really happened on that balcony. As they discover the truth, the case becomes personal for Ryan, bringing him dangerously close to losing everything.

About the Author :

EDWARD DEE retired as a lieutenant after twenty years with the New York City Police Crime Unit. He has an M.F.A. in writing from Arizona State University. His previous novels are Bronx Angel, Little Boy Blue, and 14 Peck Slip, which was named one of the most notable books of the year by the New York Times.

From Kirkus Reviews :

The fourth case for NYPD detectives Joe Gregory and Anthony Ryan begins just like Lethal Weapon, with an actress taking a header from a high window, but all similarities to the live-action cartoon series end there. Ryan, still recovering from his son Rip's death, could have sworn he heard Gillian Stone whisper ``I love you'' with her dying breath as her broken body lay on the roof of the Times Square Ark of Salvation van that ended her plunge from her Broadway Arms terrace. Did she fall, or was she pushed? Despite the absence of suspicious circumstances, the air is thick with accusations. Ryan's nephew Danny Eumont, a reporter whose last byline for Manhattan magazine was an expos of police violenceand who, as it turns out, was an ex-lover of Gillian's who last saw her only a few hours before she diedblames her death on Broadway producer Trey Winters, who insisted she take a career-ending drug test before opening in the chorus of West Side Story. Winters insists that there was ample reason for the test, because Gillian was doing serious drugs. Gillian's neighbor Stella Grasso tells Gregory and Ryan that Winters had been a constant all-hours visitor to the apartment he set Gillian up in. And Evan Stone, Gillian's father in Arizona, completes the circle by decking Danny when he shows up for his daughters funeral. What none of them knows about is the blackmail demand a Mexican juggler named Victor Nuez is about to spring on Winters, and the explosive impact the payoffmodeled on the climactic scene from Victor's favorite movie, The French Connectionwill have on the case. The plotting is hit-or-miss, with too many leads that go nowhere or get tied off with indecent ease. What lingers, though, is Dees craft in shaping each episodea series of interrogations becomes almost like a cycle of short storiesand the affection with which he treats his heroes' private lives without ever bashing the system they're fighting for. -- Copyright ©1999, Kirkus Associates, LP.
