Lourdes Robles Novels

In the Lourdes Robles Novels, New York Times bestselling and Edgar Award-winning author Peter Blauner presents a police procedural series set in contemporary New York City, featuring a brash Latina detective with something to prove–to the city, to the precinct, and to herself–as she navigates the thin blue line between cops and criminals to see justice done. With Proving Ground, the co-executive producer of the hit CBS TV show Blue Bloods returns to writing novels after a ten-year absence for this authentic, thrilling series about law and order in NYC. “Blauner cotinues to prove why he’s one of the most consistently bracing and interesting voices in American crime literature.”–Dennis Lehane
