Über diesen Titel


Journalist Pete Killharney publishes an annual "hit list" of the ten worst New Yorkers. When the targets are murdered one by one, Killharney becomes a reluctant celebrity. He dedicates himself to unmasking the killer, plunging into games of hide and seek and unexpectedly finding new love.

From Publishers Weekly:

This is the debut of an exceptionally talented writer, but the story's effects are blunted by his boring reliance on basic Anglo-Saxonisms and sexual antics beyond the kinky, into the absurd. The chief character is bibulous Pete Killharney, a columnist on a Manhattan daily, Apple, which publishes his annual Hit List: names of prominent citizens who engage in shady activities. The current list includes a crooked official, a slumlord, a TV evangelist and the secret owner of Times Square sleaze joints. As the result of Killharney's latest "J'accuse," an unseen avenger begins killing the hypocrites and the columnist joins the police in hunting the murderer. The suspense is unremitting, keeping readers on the ragged edge with episodes of violence and close shaves. In the denouement, Downey does justice to his original plot, possibly inspired by revelations about cynical deals "in the public interest," between criminals and U.S. intelligence agencies.
