When a decapitated corpse washes up on the banks of the Hudson River, a New York suburb is sent into an uproar
Commuters waiting for the morning train into Manhattan in the small Hudson River town of Riverside are the first to see the body. She drifts out of the river, naked and headless, shocking the onlookers before they board their train to work. Riverside Police Chief Harold Baltimore can’t get away from her so easily. A black chief in a white town, he’s new to his job and not at all sure he’s suited to it. At first it looks like a routine mob murder, but when one of his detectives identifies the corpse as a local woman, the news rocks quiet little Riverside—and the town won’t ever be quiet again. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Peter Blauner including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.
“The Last Good Day is light-years beyond a standard murder mystery; it is a mesmerizing work of great American fiction.” —Nelson DeMille “Readers who can follow Blauner’s intricate plot will be rewarded, but only at the very end—no giveaways here.” —Publishers Weekly
Peter Blauner (b. 1959) has spent nearly his entire life in New York City.

Since then, he has written five more novels: Casino Moon, the New York Times bestseller The Intruder, Man of the Hour, The Last Good Day, and 2006’s Slipping Into Darkness.
