Hailed by the Chicago Tribune as an "utterly irresistible heroine," Darlene O'Hara--the brilliant, hard-living, obsessive, and somewhat self-destructive detective introduced in Peter de Jonge's acclaimed crime fiction masterwork Shadows Still Remain--returns in Buried on Avenue B.

An edgy and suspenseful noir thriller, Buried on Avenue B traverses the gritty landscape of New York's Lower East Side and the more sordid corners of Sarasota, Florida, as a gruesome and unexpected discovery in a makeshift Alphabet City grave heats up a 17-year-old cold case.

James Patterson calls Darlene O'Hara "one of the freshest, hippest detective creations in many a year," and the New York Times has described Peter de Jonge's writing as "in the noirish, character-driven vein of Dennis Lehane or Michael Connelly." For fans of serious crime fiction, Peter de Jonge is a must-read, and Detective Darlene O'Hara is cop to be reckoned with.

display_description After an elderly man with encroaching Alzheimer's disease confesses to his home attendant that as a long-ago junkie and petty thief he killed his partner in crime, police from the NYPD reluctantly dig up the community garden where the body is supposed to be buried. Instead of a dead man, they find the body of a carefully dressed ten-year-old boy. Tough-minded Detective Darlene O'Hara, last seen in the novel Shadows Still Remain, is on the case.
