We gave it a B

In S.J. Rozan’s In This Rain, a city investigator uncovers a massive real estate scheme involving street thugs, Harlem pols, and Hizzoner himself while looking into a series of mishaps, one fatal, on a Bronx construction site.

Movie Pitch
The Apprentice meets The Wire.

Lowdown
Rozan’s tale of New York corruption benefits from a large cast of deeply felt characters, but it could do without some last-minute thriller tropes that spoil her lively authenticity.
