Hell's Gate

Hell's Gate: A Novel - Richard Edward Crabbe the third outing in the series set in late 19th century early 20th century New york city. This one involves gangsters, the Black Hand Piracy and more, all culminating with Detective Mike Braddock being on board the General Slocum on its tragic last voyage in the New York Harbor. The fire and subsequent burning or drowning of nearly 1200 souls remains the costliest marine disaster in New York City history.

The tone hear is light, yet well researched, it certainly has the proper feel of 1904 new york. Braddock is a like-able and believable sleuth. I hope Mr Crabbe writes many more.
