St. Martin's Paperbacks

Bill Smith is going undercover again as a favor to an old friend who wants him to investigate thievery on the 40-story Manhattan site of Crowell Construction's latest project. His bricklaying is a little rusty, but passable as he checks out the foreman who's under suspicion. A crane operator has disappeared--along with some heavy machinery. But when a well-orchestrated riot causes the foreman's "accidental" death, Smith plunges into a morass of bribery, blackmail and blood looking for answers. With the help of his Chinese-American partner Lydia Chin, he follows a trail of twisted loyalties, old-fashioned greed and organized crime to its heart-stopping conclusion. Murder--with no end in sight.
S.J. Rozan won the 1998 Anthony Award for No Colder Place.

REVIEWS

Praise for No Colder Place

"Rozan ... certainly understands how a good mystery works: by doing your homework, using the best quality materials and keeping the surprises coming until the very end."
--Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
 
"Rozan's focus on the tragic Armstrong building makes this the sharpest, clearest, most purposefully focused of her four Smith/Chin mysteries."
--Kirkus Reviews
 
"The story has good bones, and the human players can stand up to a strong wind."
--The New York Times
