Some brief overview of this book

In the depths of the Cold War a Soviet defector comes to the CIA with a story no one wants to hear. In a dreary apartment outside Moscow a secret videotape captures a man and woman making frantic love that climaxes in a murder. In the woods outside a New York City suburb an NYPD detective looks at the nude, mutilated body of a man whose violent death will lead the cop into an underground world of forbidden sexuality and international espionage.

In this powerful debut novel Michael Walsh delivers an unparalleled jolt of dark, scintillating suspense that blends John Le Carre with James Ellroy. A murder mystery, a tangled espionage thriller, and a grown-up novel of desire and jealousy, EXCHANGE ALLEY is a tale of truths conceived in sin and exposed in blood.

Lt. Francis X. Byrne, a smart ambitious homicide detective on the rise, lives in a rundown Hells Kitchen apartment and knows far less about his own life than he believes. Struggling with his temper, his drinking and his relationship with a woman who has him outclassed, Byrne is trying to solve the gruesome slaying of a Danish diplomat - and following the trail of Egil Ekdhals short life into a world where beautiful people play the most dangerous of games.

As Byrne gets closer to Ekdahls true identity he collides with the one man he loathes more than any other human being: his own FBI agent brother. Tom Byrne has broken every rule in pursuit of a spys Holy Grail: the KGBs top secret file on Lee Harvey Oswald. Its a dossier that the FBI, the CIA and even the Mafia desperately want — a file stained by blackmail, intimidation and suicide.

From the decadence of modern-day New York City to the twilight days if Soviet Communism, and stretching back to the hell of the Nazi death camps, EXCHANGE ALLEY pits a tough but-all-too human cop against a conspiracy of evil that is beyond his comprehension. Relentless and frighteningly realistic, this is a novel that captures the rage of historys fires and the darkness they have left behind.

“Gritty and gripping… EXCHANGE ALLEY delives the darkness and synthetic sheen of contemporary urban life… a fascinating read.” – Wendy Wasserstein, playwright of THE HEIDI CHRONICLES

“Extraordinary and entertaining… Dark, ominous, and tragic, this violent, vivid glimpse into the underworlds of New York and Moscow grips the reader and never lets go.” – Tim Rice, co-writer of EVITA

“Michael Walsh lurches the reader through the labyrinths of several underworlds, riveted by his whiplash style, confident that he will be there at the final “No Exit” with his natural novelist’s scalpel to reveal his characters, amazingly. Hang on!” – Gail Sheehy, author of NEW PASSAGES

“Without pity or indulgence, Michael Walsh summons up the bent world of sexual and political corruption. The people in this arena are neither fragrant nor wise, but in Walsh’s hands they are impossible to ignore. Enter EXCHANGE ALLEY and you will not be able to extricate yourself until the last paragraph.” – Stefan Kanfer, author of TOUGH WITHOUT A GUN and contributing editor to CITY JOURNAL

“A darkly ingenious, disturbing story, told with ruthless energy, scathing moral impartiality, and bitter omniscience. Michael Walsh, a fine music critic, is at the start of a brilliant new career.” – Lance Morrow, author of EVIL: AN INVESTIGATION

“A classy thriller… intelligent…multi-layered, gritty.” – USA TODAY
