Brooklyn cop Joe Rizzo---"the most authentic cop in contemporary crime fiction" (starred review Kirkus Reviews)---is ready to retire and spend the rest of his days with his wife, doting on their grown-up girls. But when his youngest daughter, Carol, decides to follow her dad onto the force, Joe decides to stay on until she's settled, calling in favors to get her assigned to the easiest house, the best training officer—anything to protect his baby girl.
While there, of course, he's still working a few cases, though he never would've guessed that one of them would be the most sensational case of his career, the murder of mob boss Louie Quattropa. If mob wars were the worst of his problems, he could handle that, but with a daughter on patrol, Joe knows all too well what dangers await her and what little he can do about them.
With an authentic voice and breathtakingly accurate portrayal of police work, Lou Manfredo's novels have won wide acclaim, and Rizzo's Daughter raises the bar to a whole new level.
