This is a story of political corruption, intrigue, murder, Irish immigrants, adultery and New York in the 40's and 50's. That's a little too ambitious. Some of the street scenes and crowd scenes are overwritten and transparent attempts to be evocative. Surprisingly, the scenes in Mexico are very evocative of a lost time. Many of the characters, especially the gangsters are vividly described. But at times the book seem to veer into being a romance novel. It is not a bad book, just a little sprawling. The solution to the central mystery was clever but took so long, it was not that surprising.
