Under The Eye of God: Book Summary
Our Review of Under The Eye of God
Jerome Charyn's Under the Eye of God is the eleventh novel to feature his beloved character Isaac Sidel, who in his various incarnations has progressed from detective to commissioner to mayor and now to the VP-elect of the United States. The novel follows the “Big Guy with the Glock” from New York to Texas as he dodges bullets while dealing with love, betrayal, corruption, conflicting loyalties, and self-doubt. The story contains enough plot twists and conspiracies to keep even Oliver Stone fans delighted. Along the way, Sidel attracts a motley crew of misfits and reluctant assassins, who are “madmen and freaks”drawn into the “undercurrent of his [Sidel's] own mad wake” (p. 112). At risk is Sidel's (and Charyn's) beloved Bronx, which faces a threat in the form of a land grab from the highest levels of power: the White House and the Pentagon.
This novel will appeal not only to devotees of the Sidel novels, but also to readers who enjoy clever and colorful prose, fast-paced action, and manic misadventures in the style of Donald Westlake.
