Tensions at the Top

My Kirkus Reviews column this week focuses on Richard Dougherty’s 1962 novel, The Commissioner. That book, which I found surprisingly captivating (so captivating, in fact, that it bolted to the top of my to-be-read pile over the Christmas holiday), was adapted into the 1968 Richard Widmark film Madigan and inspired the short-lived NBC Wednesday Mystery Movie series of the same name.

Check out that Kirkus piece here when you get a chance.
