I debated between a three and a four. This is not great, but a good story about an interesting neighborhood in NYC - a part of the city I only rarely visited when I lived there and about which I knew very little. It is a bit violent, perhaps gratuitously, but it was a fun listen. I listen to keep myself entertained while running, doing yard work etc. So I'm not after great literature, at least not most of the time. And this kept my interest.

This is the third novel in the Location Scout/John Pelham series. Pelham is a film director, filmaker and a location scout with a dark past. In Hells Kitchen, he is filming a verbal history documentary of the infamous New York neighborhood.
And true to form, the 72 year old star subject of his film is suddenly accused of arson and murder, placing Pelham square in the middle of an intense and harsh police investigation. Its true to form because like the first two novels, the police and fire inspectors are laser focused on the wrong suspect. But even with the obvious formula, the remarkable characters make this a really fun listen.
Holter Graham does a great job with every voice.
