Five Nights in Harlem by Ron Lewis is the story of a killer, detectives and patrons of a bar. The five nights follow the activities and actions of several individuals. Unknown to each of them there is a common bond between them all. They are in the same place at the same time and are very unaware of each other and the roles that intertwine them with the others.|
A good portion of the book is the notes and conversations of a screenwriter about a documentary he wants to write about the happenings in the world. Nathan Brown (the screenwriter) and other patrons of the bar spend hours discussing everything from Islam to the liberal media, etc. Through it all they are enjoying the conversations and beer. Bartender and patrons are unaware of the "strange bird" patron that plays a significant part in Five Nights. Karl is a strange dresser and does not offer much to the documentary conversation.
There are terrible murders occurring at the same time in Harlem - there we are introduced to Detectives Rodriguez and Fernandez. The two of them are working the murders along with a couple narcotic detectives. The relationships between the four of them are both interesting and unconventional. The detectives have a close friendship and the the narcs are a constant bicker back and forth.
Five Nights in Harlem will keep you entertained from beginning to end. Very interesting read about all the characters and their close proximity that they are all unaware of.
Worth your time!!!!!
