Two award-winning masters of crime fiction, Bill Pronzini and John Lutz, join forces for a chilling tale of a serial killer who targets the residents of a single city block on Manhattan’s Upper West Side
Lewis Collier watches the people living on West 98th Street through his telescope, the “Eye of God,” ready to mete out the ultimate punishment for every perceived sin. Those who transgress must suffer and die, and no one is safe—not the building superintendent or his junk collector friend, not the musician or the brave and beautiful woman who has struggled back from a nightmare of pain and brutality.
Detective E. L. Oxman of the NYPD is assigned to investigate the bloody horror that has descended on the frightened residents of the terrorized neighborhood. But Oxman’s adulterous attraction to Jennifer, an abuse survivor, has caught Collier’s attention. And all sin is punishable by death.
Separately, Bill Pronzini and John Lutz have won numerous prizes for their acclaimed mystery and suspense novels, including the coveted Edgar and Shamus Awards, two of crime fiction’s most prestigious honors. With The Eye, these giants of the mystery genre have combined their remarkable talents in a truly unforgettable collaboration.
