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.

Industry Reviews

"De Jonge's cop humor is true to life and the crime is true to the city. He also does sweet justice to New York, evoking the LES of 30 years ago as his cops work its latter-day streets." -- New York Daily News

"Edgy. . . comes full circle in a stunningly creative manner. De Jonge's hard-boiled prose and urban slang transports readers of serious crime fiction through gritty, harsh scenes populated with colorful characters Another stellar read from de Jonge--or as O'Hara would say, "Avenue B's friggin' amazing!" -- Library Journal (starred review)

"I'll bet you $1 that BURIED ON AVENUE B is as good as--or better than--any mystery novel that comes out of Scandinavia, the rest of Europe, or America from sea to shining sea this year. It isn't exactly realism--but that's because the dialogue is too sharp and funny." -- James Patterson

"Mr. de Jonge clearly enjoys himself throughout this police procedural, and it makes all the difference." -- East Hampton Star

"A compelling and puzzling mystery narrative peppered with memorable characters...De Jonge has earned himself a permanent place on this reviewer's "must read" list." -- Joe Hartlaub on Bookreporter.com

"De Jonge he tells his story with style, a generous helping of whimsy and a sharp eye for the odd corners and myriad eccentricities of Manhattan." -- Washington Post Book World
