One Night, New York

One Night, New York by Lara Thompson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


This book has it all: corruption, abuse, drugs, romance, murder, revenge. It’s a dark thriller, set in a dark time in a crime-wrapped NYC.

A few short years after the worst day in the history of New York, the big city is thriving and growing at a rapid speed. But the streets of New York are dangerous. the day Frances has followed her brother’s footsteps and arrived in New York, she has realized – she is not in Kansas anymore. But the bright lights, fancy parties, and new friends didn’t save young Frances from heartbreak. After stumbling upon her dead brother’s body, all Frances could think of was revenge.

Besides the gripping yet tragic story of a Kansas girl, I’ve enjoyed the good old New York: the author was able to describe the city in such a great way. I felt like I was walking thru the dirty and smelly streets of new york, having drinks in an illegal speakeasy, listening to old-school jazz, and dancing my night away. A captivating read, perfect for historical book lovers. Thank you NetGalley and Virago publisher for a free and advanced copy of the novel.
