Publisher's Summary

The last time former Green Beret Will Kane was involved in killing someone it made the cover of LIFE Magazine.

First Blood meets Breaking Bad.

Eight years later he’s getting pushed to the edge of that precipice he vowed never to go over again.

New York City, summer 1977. The Bronx is burning. The twin towers of the new World Trade Center loom over the skyline. Son of Sam. Star Wars. Studio 54. The Five Families. The city faces bankruptcy and unrest seethes.

On the dark streets of a city the rest of the country believes is going down the toilet, Vietnam vet Kane’s life mirrors his hometown.

Carrying a past cratered with death and tragedy, Kane has been working as a "fixer" for a high-priced lawyer since returning to New York in disgrace. But is he really fixing anything?

It begins when he takes a compromising picture as part of the job. As the long hot summer boils, so does Kane as the mob, the CIA, the IRA and other forces are brought to bear on him. What they all seem to have forgotten, and Kane wishes he could, is that he is a highly trained and experienced warrior.

A skilled killer.

Kane faces threats, betrayal and shadows from his past, and then, on 13 July 1977, the Blackout occurs and Kane explodes.

For fans of the Green Beret series of books, Dave Riley makes an appearance as Will Kane's 17-year-old cousin.

Good story with interesting characters

I have read the Green Berets series and longed for continuation. Now I noticed that New York Minute is published in Audible format before Kindle and decided to give it a try. The story was good and did not leave me disappointed in any way but I found the narrator somewhat uninteresting - at least initially. I just love Bob Mayer's style to describe things and characters that makes me listen to (or read) "one more chapter" and I am definitely going to buy the book too once published.
