Too Beautiful to Die

 North America, USA, New York, New York City
Genre: Thriller
Time Frame: 2000s
Published: 2003
Description: The Washington Post has compared Glenville Lovell’s novels to “works by Morrison and Nabokov.” The New York Times praised his “sharp eye for the extraordinary.” Now he turns to crime fiction with a tale that “will keep readers guessing until the end” (Tananarive Due, author of My Soul to Keep).
There’s no love lost between the NYPD and black ex-cop Blades Overstreet since a suspicious bust nearly cost Blades his life. It didn’t kill him, and it didn’t kill his conscience either. That’s why he’s agreed to help an actress named Precious find her missing father.
Simple? Nothing as beautiful as Precious is ever simple—especially once Blades’s investigation leads to the discovery of a murdered FBI agent. Framed for the killing, pursued by the FBI, a pariah to his former NYPD “brothers,” Blades is in deep, on the run, and winding his way through New York’s Caribbean community to find the real killer before he’s forced to take the rap . . . or worse.
