Terence McCauley: The Fairfax Incident


The Fairfax Incident Terrence McCauley

Smooth Operator

Charlie Doherty is WWI veteran, and ex-police. A bag man forced off the job so the Chief of Police could keep his. Now a Private Investigator, he has the backing of an influential family whose son he saved.

Doherty is a sharp-dressed man with wealthy clients. One of who’s patriarch has committed suicide. His wife wants an investigation. Yeah, nothing is quite as it’s originally portrayed.

New York in 1933 is the depression era and Terrence McCauley writes of that time and that place. It’s glossy and polished noir,  and you feel you’ve just watched a great classic. That’s pretty immersive if you ask me. The Fairfax Incident is for the cool kids, and you’re one of them.

  1. “Glossy and polished noir.” Love that turn of phrase.

  2. Hello Pamela, there seem to be a few books coming out from this era. While I haven’t reviewed them on Murder in Common, I wanted to point you toward: Noah Hawley’s – Before the Fall and Nora Roberts’ – Shelter in Place. These two crime fiction books are more on the literary side and you may enjoy them.

  3. Sounds good June. I love the depression era setting. I’m finishing up a read right now and then I’ll get to it.
