Snowstorm in August
The eyes of the city’s denizens are fixated as white flakes fall from the sky. The calendars show August, so something must be off. Eventually, those unlucky enough to be on the ground are covered in the powder. The substance is not from the heavens, it is a gift from a drug lord intent on vengeance.
Danny Corcoran is a member of a covert unit within the NYPD. A training op is marred by the death of a celebrity who wormed his way into a photo opportunity that went awry. The unit is soon disbanded and Danny is retired. His personal life is similarly suffering. His father-in-law, a judge ailing from cancer, acts as executioner after having to throw out charges against a drug trafficker. The judge’s actions set off a chain of events leading to the cocaine blizzard and the dealer that Danny is soon tasked with taking down at any cost.
Snowstorm in August is the latest blazing thriller from Marshall Karp. The action consumes the reader from the chaos of a mass drugging to the covert operations of an off-the-books vigilante group. The chances for a breather are few and far between in this high-stakes drama.
