Excerpt
THERE was menace in the quiet along Manhattan's water front. The foggy, brine-laden air seemed stirring with whispers that crept amid the darkness, though the words remained unheard. It would have taken a person long accustomed to that district to sense that trouble was afoot; nevertheless, the subtle signs were present. Furtive shamblers veered from gloomy spots near deserted piers that rose, ominous and formidable, into the haze-thickened darkness. Others, nervous without knowing why, were lured by the smudgy lights of Ricky's Cafe, the only place that showed a glow in that entire block. A night like this invariably made passers form a taste for fish and chips, the specialty served at Ricky's. Customers were there in plenty.
