A rash of elaborate cat burglaries of luxury buildings in Manhattan has the police and mayor panicked. When a group of social media obsessed millennials—a loosely organized crew that call themselves “urban explorers”—are suspected in the heists, NYPD detective Jake Rivett is assigned the case.
Already undercover with one foot on each side of the blue line, Rivett is ordered to infiltrate the group and discern responsibility. Battling against both his own personal demons and misgivings regarding his superiors, Rivett dives deep into the urban exploration scene in pursuit of the truth. But what, and who, he finds—deep in the sewers, up in the cranes above under-construction skyscrapers, and everywhere else in New York—will change not only Jake, but the city itself.
"A truly fabulous and entertaining story from start to finish. I already knew that Denison Hatch was a great writer after reading his first book ‘Flash Crash’ (which is also definitely worth a read). He’s put together a great character with Jake Rivett, and a very entertaining and memorable plot. [...] If you enjoy Detective Thrillers, then this is certainly a great book to add to your list."- Todd, Goodreads
