Also, that night, on a hunch, Gus trails his friend and coworker Slava to Brooklyn, where he sees Slava visit a man and leave shortly before the man is gunned down.
What You Break is a rumination on the men's pasts right in Coleman's wheelhouse. Series-wise, Reed is making the most of his chance to portray a new protagonist against the backdrop of today's Suffolk County, where he lives. An added treat for me was Gus's visit to Nassau County's Hofstra University, where Linh Trang Spears was a student, also my alma mater and where Reed and I taught at different times.
Reed's original contract was for two Murphy books. I see no reason to stop there.
