"A brilliantly imagined thriller, Invisible Streets is a sprawling, noirish epic of crime and corruption from an author who has been compared to Caleb Carr, James Ellroy, and Jonathan Lethem. The year is 1965, and the City is a hulking shell of itself. Bohemians, crooks, and snarling anti-Communists have their run of the place, but if Mr. Canada has his way, all this decline and decadence will soon be nothing but a distant memory. His New City Project will paper over the grit and the grime, making the City safe for the rich. According to him, the project the City's last hope--but according to everyone else in town, it's a death knell. So when the Project's cache of explosives goes missing, everyone is a suspect, and a police detective named Torsten Grip finds himself up against a ticking clock and a wall of silence. Meanwhile a journalist named Frank Frings--the last honest man in the City--sets out to find his friend's grandson, who has gotten himself involved with a radical group called Kollectiv 61, which--Grip believes--holds the key to the investigation. At once a cinematic journey through a city down on its luck and a gripping story all the way up to its shocking conclusion, Invisible Streets will leave you awed and breathless.

This guy, Toby Ball, is simply one fine writer. [The FBI and their creation of so-called terrorists in Liberty City, Miami, Florida, and pizza parlor operators in Pennsylvania - - now why would this book make me think of that?]
