"Nathaniel Dresden never really got along with his father, an infamous civil rights lawyer who defended criminals and spearheaded protest movements. As an act of rebellion, Natty joined the U.S. Army and served in Iraq, coming back with a chest full of commendations and a head full of disturbing memories. But when his father is found murdered near the peaceful confines of Brooklyn's Prospect Park, Natty is forced to deal with the troubled legacy of their unresolved relationship. He also has to fend off the growing suspicions of NYPD Detective Lourdes Robles, a brash Latina cop with something to prove, who thinks Natty might bear some responsibility for his father's death. Though truth be told, the list of people--cops and criminals--who wanted David Dresden out of the way is long. The search for answers leads Natty and Lourdes into an urban labyrinth where they must confront each other--and the brutal truths that could destroy them both. Proving Ground, New York Times bestseller and Edgar Award winner Peter Blauner's first novel in more than a decade, is a sweeping crime novel, an intricate story about the quest for redemption, and a vibrant portrait of contemporary New York City, all told in Blauner's singular voice"--

"It is autumn of 1938 in London. The Nazis have invaded Austria and are seizing Jewish assets, rumors of the Dachau concentration camp are clouding the air and, despite the cancer ravaging his body, an exiled Dr. Sigmund Freud spends his days anxiously clutching a Cuban cigar between his jaw and a large dental prosthesis he calls "The Monster." He is doing just this when his daughter interrupts his forbidden indulgence with a scolding and news of a foreboding visit from SS Officer Anton Sauerwald. Rather than dragging the doctor into an interrogation room or confiscating the few luxuries Freud was able to secretly take away from Vienna, Sauerwald brings something far more dangerous into the household: a book more deadly than any weapon"--Jacket

Gripping crime thrillers from the New York Times-bestselling author of The Intruder and Proving Ground-"Nobody writing suspense novels does it as well" (James Patterson). Praised by everyone from Stephen King and James Patterson to Dennis Lehane and James Ellroy, New York Times-bestselling author Peter Blauner has proven himself a master of the crime thriller. In the three novels collected here-including Blauner's Edgar Award-winning debut-the former journalist delivers breathtaking suspense alongside provocative questions of morality and ethics. Slow Motion Riot: Blauner's Edgar Award-winning first novel is "a thriller with a conscience" (Entertainment Weekly). That conscience belongs to probation officer Steven Baum, who still hopes to make a difference in a city plagued by drugs, murders, and corruption. But his newest charge is about to challenge him to his core. Darryl King is not just a small-time drug dealer-he's a psychopathic cop-killer. "Harrowing." -The Washington Post "Exceptionally well done." -Andrew Vachss Casino Moon: Blauner's story of the son of an Atlantic City mobster is "a gritty novel with integrity and style" (James Patterson). Anthony Russo's scheme for staying out of the family crime business is to manage a has-been boxer's comeback. But it's Russo who ultimately takes the fall, as he discovers it's not so easy to escape the sins of his father. "You could cut a lip on his dialogue." -The New York Times "This book has it all ... Blauner is ... brilliant." -James Ellroy Man of the Hour: When high school English teacher David Fitzgerald rescues a student after a terrorist bomb explosion on a school bus, he is lauded as a hero-until an ambitious reporter raises suspicions about Fitzgerald's involvement and he finds himself hounded by the media and under investigation by the police. "A remarkable achievement-I loved it and couldn't put it down." -Stephen King "As impressive for its realism as for its suspense." -Publishers Weekly
