Shadows Still Remain by Peter De Jonge

I'm pretty sure this is De Jonge's first solo novel. His previous books have been co-authored with the master, James Patterson.

This could have been a routine crime thriller set in New York City, but instead you get tough, skillful, sophisticated entertainment. At the end of the novel, as all the pieces begin to fall into place, you realize how cleverly it has been plotted. De Jonge conveys enough texture that it isn't hard to imagine this on the big screen. I'd be surprised if Hollywood hasn't already come calling.
