'Under the Eye of God' by Jerome Charyn now available

We're excited to be releasing the first Isaac Sidel novel in a decade from Jerome Charyn. Sidel is a Jewish New York detective, turned police commissioner, turned mayor—and now he's dabbling in presidential politics. 

Crime Time said that "Charyn has lost none of his ability to dazzle and amaze." And musician and author Kinky Friedman says it's "a pluperfect example of an obviously fictional work that conveys the essence of the world."

Here's the synopsis: 

Isaac Sidel is too popular to be America’s vice president. Once the New York Police Department commissioner, he became the most beloved mayor in the city’s history—famous for his refusal to surrender his Glock, and for his habit of disappearing for months at a time to fight crime at street level. So when baseball czar J. Michael Storm asks Sidel to join him on the election’s Democratic ticket, the two wild men romp to an unprecedented landslide. But as the president-elect’s mandate goes off the rails—threatened by corruption, sex, and God knows what else—he tires of being overshadowed by Sidel, and dispatches him to a place from which tough politicians seldom return: Texas.

In the Lone Star state, Sidel confronts rogue astrologers, accusations of pedophilia, and a dimwitted assassin who doesn’t know when to take an easy shot. If this Bronx bomber doesn’t watch his step, he risks making vice-presidential history by getting killed on the job.
