Jimmy McTigue and the boys from Manhattan North Narcotics are doing "God's work", making collars and kicking down doors up above 96th Street in places like Harlem, Spanish Harlem, and Washington Heights - all the while having laughs. But when movie star Meg Cassidy; Artie Levin, her obnoxious agent; and the up-and-coming rapper he represents (hip-hopping about jihad, no less) arrive on the scene, things are bound to get dicey - and they do!
This is Jake McNicholas's first novel and if it seems that the "cop talk" is authentic, it's because McNicholas is a retired NYPD Detective. Manhattan North Narcotics is replete with the sarcasm, humor, and political incorrectness one would expect from a bunch of working cops. It's a rollercoaster ride that will have you screaming for more - before you even climb the first hill.

A Story About Police...
There are some fun and interesting moments throughout this book. But from the start of the story it was difficult to follow, with all of the names and changing situations, with brief, shallow character development.
The narration was awesome and characters were distinctly and vibrantly represented in the narration.
If you are a police officer, familiar with the culture, or a big fan of police/detective stories, chances are that you'll enjoy this book.
