Bizarrely, she never seriously considers this as a reason to recuse herself from the investigation, even as her work is seriously compromised by her personal connection to the case. Comey knows exactly how things work at the FBI and DOJ, and Central Park West opens a door into a fascinating and complex world of tradecraft, criminal investigation, political corruption, legal wrangling, and murder. Strong characters, some of whom with great roots that could develop into a strong series, emerge throughout the book, leaving the reader begging to know more. born December 14, 1960) is an American lawyer who served as the seventh Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) from September 4, 2013 until his dismissal on May 9, 2017.

He has me anticipating the next book he is working on, and I will be the first in line to grab a copy.Wonderful writing and laying the groundwork for something series-based, Comey is sure to garner some great publicity, as Trump remains above the fold in shackles. James Comey combines his insider knowledge of every level of the justice system with a natural storytelling voice to create a winning debut in Central Park West. Central Park West is out now in hardback, ebook and audiobook formats and will be published in paperback on 1 February. So far as I can tell, it is supposed to convey just how busy everyone is and how quickly the investigation is moving, but the device is stretched well beyond its breaking point. I also can't say I was thrilled with the ending, but that's not a negative - I'm pretty sure it reflects reality more often than not (sometimes bad people do good things, sometimes good people do bad things, sometimes neither gets found out).

Lots of bad guys/gals in this story of a murder that turned out not to be as simple as it appeared, and an interesting portrayal of some all-too-close connections between politicians and criminals. On top of this, I was fascinated by Comey, firstly as someone involved in a lot of Mob prosecutions (The Irishman is an aficionado of Mob history and, as a result, I’ve learnt more about it than would have been my inclination otherwise) and later as Director of the FBI and the controversy surrounding the ending of his tenure under President Donald Trump. It’s very well executed: the characters are richly detailed, the dialogue is impressively realistic, and the plot is genuinely suspenseful…. Statements from Trump and the White House suggested that he had been dismissed to ease the "pressure" Trump was under due to the Russia investigation.

Federal prosecutor Nora Carleton has spent years building a case against a powerful New York mobster.

The reviewer for the Washington Post trashed the story and the writing before concluding that “helping to deliver four years of Donald Trump is not the worst thing Comey has ever done. While the killing of a disgraced former governor appears unconnected to the trial, the fallout from his death means a guilty verdict hangs in the balance. Comey also observed, "From my upbringing and my professional experience [the] FBI and NYPD are Godzilla and King Kong. He has clearly consumed a great deal of Alphabetti spaghetti with the amount of acronym after acronym which is laboriously explained so I glaze over. S. attorney, he tells the guy, “Look, I could give a shit where you put your dick, but I’m guessing your wife cares.She and her team work hard to put away a mob hit woman who not only killed the governor but has a long list of hits. It’s a modern ‘good guys vs the bad guys’ story in which nearly all of the good ‘guys’ are actually strong, smart, steely women.

Assistant US Attorney for the Southern District Nora Carleton is currently prosecuting a case against Dominic D’Amico of the Gambino Mafia Family. We have seen how that can play out in this country recently and things are no different across the pond. One likes to think that justice is served without fear or favour but so often there are powerful strings being pulled behind the scenes. Nora Carleton, a single mom struggling a bit to make ends meet while she takes on the world of organized crime, and her very personable (and formidable) investigator, Benny Dugan. In the same vein, after Burke escapes conviction by the Manhattan district attorney’s office, the junior FBI agent, who is Black, observes, “Innocent white people getting prosecuted?The non-stop description of everything and anything hasn't helped, other than to fluff out the story. After he was fired as FBI Director, Comey held the King Lecture Chair in Public Policy at Howard University for 2017-18 and served as a Distinguished Lecturer in Public Policy at William and Mary for 2018-2019.
