This book is the third in the Orr series, but it's the first one I picked up. It's fantastic. Fusilli is an excellent writer. Keep 'em coming!

This is ellen in atlanta, and Jim Fusilli's newest Terry Orr book has arrived and the story and character lines are getting more potent and heady -- survivors - like the folks after 9/11 in the TriBeCa area - Orr has been striking out to find the man who he thinks purposely killed his infant son and wife - the last 5 years of his life has been stagnant - and he needs answers and needs to move on with his life, writing career, or pi career, and the lady friend in his life, and the light of his life, his daughter, Bella - he receives answers he did not expect, yet shows how big his heart is and helps closure-
Time for Terry to shine in the next novels!
Bravo Fusilli!!!

In this third installment in Fusilli's Terry Orr series, Fusilli explores Orr's quest for vengeance for his wife's death five years earlier. As a P.I., Orr is still hunting the mentally ill Ray Weisz whom he believes pushed his infant son's stroller onto the path of a New York subway train causing his wife Marina to follow, plunging both to their deaths. But his quest his put on a temporary hold when friend Leo dies, and Terry and his teenaged daughter Bella travel to The Big Easy for Leo's funeral.
Taut and complex, Fusilli's tale is full of unexpected curves, especially when Orr discovers from an eyewitness to his wife's death, that she was kissing an unknown man, and Weisz possibly tried to stop the stroller's ominous descent onto the subway tracks. Not only does this unexpected disclosure stun Terry, it alters his quest for vengeance and allows him to open up to patient girlfriend Julie.
At the request of his deceased friend Leo, Orr tries to locate Leo's long absent wife Loretta, whom Leo believes caused financial disaster in their New York restaurant business, forcing Leo to buy the pathetic bar he owned until his death. But Loretta somehow ties into the circumstances surrounding Marina's death, and Orr isn't sure anymore who was responsible for Leo's financial demise.
Fusilli has penned a novel that constantly hovers in the gray, where there is no black or white, no right or wrong, and many of the characters are constantly crossing the line, especially Terry, as he attempts to seek closure in the death of his wife. The tightly written plot line will leave even readers unfamiliar with his series eagerly seeking a sequel.
