The Devil’s Half Mile by Paddy Hirsch is historical criminal fiction taking place in the early days of New York City. Stupendously researched. Any book that mentions Alexander Hamilton and the Panic of 1792 can’t go wrong. Throw in an interracial love story and you have the makings of a treasured literary experience.

Other characters include Bull Flanagan, Justy's cousin Kerry who is half Irish and half Black and a few real historical figures including Alexander Hamilton also appear. This story was touched on interesting times and events but it dragged at times. This is the author's first novel, I will wait and see if there is another.… (mais)
