About the Book, Crooked Numbers  Crooked numbers

Schoolteacher and ex-cop Raymond Donne finds the expanse of the Williamsburg Bridge wider than he expected after his former student transfers out of the Brooklyn public schools to a high-stakes Manhattan private high school and winds up murdered.

The dead boy’s mother asks Ray for the same kind of help he gave Frankie Rivas’s family eighteen months earlier (Sacrifice Fly, Minotaur Books, Oct. 2012), yet everyone else warns Ray to stick to the profession he chose after a tragic accident forced him give up police work. But Donne can’t — or won’t — turn off his “cop brain” once he jump-starts the case and connects it to the recent death and hospitalization of other classmates. Sacrifice Fly

Following on the heels of his Barry Award–nominated debut, Sacrifice Fly, Tim O’Mara’s Crooked Numbers (Minotaur Books, Oct. 2013) is another critically acclaimed mystery that illuminates the streets and characters of New York City and further solidifies O’Mara’s place among the best new crime fiction writers working today.

St. Martin’s Press/Minotaur Books has slated O’Mara’s third Raymond Donne novel, Dead Read, for an early 2015 release, and he is currently writing his first crime e-novella, Smoked, for Stark Raving Group.
