Former FBI director James Comey takes readers into the world of high finance and corporate espionage in this riveting thriller.

A red canoe sits abandoned on Seymour Rock, right where the Saugatuck River hits the Long Island Sound. The elegantly dressed corpse of a woman lies inside….
It’s been two years since Nora Carleton left the job she loved at the US Attorney’s Office to become lead counsel at Saugatuck Associates, the world’s largest hedge fund. The career change also meant a change of scenery, relocating her to Westport, Connecticut, fifty miles north of New York City. But it was worth it to get her daughter, Sophie, away from the city. Plus, she likes the people she works with. Especially Helen, who recruited Nora because of her skills as an investigator.

Then Nora’s new life falls apart when a coworker is murdered and she becomes the lead suspect. Nora calls in her old colleagues from the US Attorney’s Office, Mafia investigator Benny Dugan and attorney Carmen Garcia. To clear Nora’s name, Benny and Carmen hunt for the true killer’s motive, but it seems nearly everyone at Saugatuck has secrets worth killing for. As Benny sets out to interrogate her colleagues, Nora examines her history with the company to determine who set her up to take the fall.

A suspenseful and intriguing tale of high finance and murder, Westport features the characters first introduced in James Comey’s debut novel Central Park West but can also be read on its own. It further establishes Comey as “a bold new talent in the mystery genre” (Harlan Coben).

Central Park West

James Comey’s latest book—his first work of fiction—is “Central Park West,” a gripping and fast-paced legal thriller inspired by Comey’s long career in federal law enforcement, including his years in Manhattan as a mob prosecutor and later the chief federal prosecutor.  He takes the reader deep inside the world of lawyers and investigators working to solve a murder mystery while navigating the treacherous currents of modern politics and the mob. 

The characters are as real as any get in a work of fiction, because Comey knows this world of unforgettable people and places from personal experience and takes the reader with him through investigations, interrogations, trials, and shocking twists.  

Some early reviews:

“Central Park West is a great read. Brimming with been-there-done-that authority, it’s clear James Comey knows this world like the back of his hand. And he delivers it with the addictive style of an expert storyteller.”

Michael Connelly, NYT’s #1 bestseller of the Harry Bosch series and Desert Star

“Hard to believe Central Park West is a first novel. It reeks of authenticity and the plot goes like a train. The courtroom scenes are tense and the cast of characters vivid and compelling. This is the sort of debut publishers dream of.”

Ian Rankin, internationally bestselling author of A Heart Full of Headstones and the John Rebus series

“James Comey’s intimate knowledge of law enforcement makes Central Park West a winning legal thriller, but the book is so much more than an insider’s account. Memorable characters, a gripping plot, and breathless pacing combine for a truly outstanding debut— one that announces a bold new talent in the mystery genre.”

Harlan Coben, New York Times #1 bestselling author of I Will Find You

“James Comey combines his insider knowledge of every level of the justice system with a natural storytelling voice to create a winning debut in Central Park West. More books, please!”

–  Alafair Burke, New York Times bestselling author of Find Me

“I loved this novel.  Could not put it down. Central Park West is a smart, nuanced legal thriller that truly delivers.  It’s a modern “good guys vs the bad guys” story in which nearly all of the good “guys” are actually strong, smart, steely women.  It’s a smart and satisfying read that I could not recommend more highly.”

Nicolle Wallace, host of MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House” and New York Times bestselling author of Eighteen Acres

“A nonstop thrill ride! Central Park West is a masterful blend of legal thriller, police procedural and psychological drama. And it’s populated with some of the best heroes and most evil villains to come along in years.  Bravo!”

Jeffery Deaver, #1 New York Times author of the Lincoln Rhyme series

“Central Park West is a truly outstanding debut novel, a sophisticated and engaging legal thriller that grabs the reader from the opening scene and doesn’t let go until the surprising ending. In between the author weaves an intricate and stylish story with vivid characters, playing out in a brilliant New York setting. Comey knows exactly how things work at the FBI and DOJ, and Central Park West opens a door into a fascinating and complex world of tradecraft, criminal investigation, political corruption, legal wrangling, and murder. I loved this book—highly, highly recommended!”

Douglas Preston, #1 New York Times bestselling co-author of the celebrated Agent Pendergast series
