An exciting police thriller from New York Times Bestselling author and former NYC police commissioner Bernard Kerik
A story of suspense, murder, and terrorist conspiracy ripped from today's headlines
“Kerik, a comic book hero come to life.” The New York Times
“SHOTS FIRED CENTRAL! 26 Sergeant to Central… Shot fired… cop down at one-two-five and Broadway – get a bus … suspect running towards the Westside Highway just off of Broadway!”
New York City Police Commissioner Rick Raymond was a captain back in 2001 when terrorist planes struck the Twin Towers, killing thousands…including fellow police officers and Raymond’s wife. Ever since that awful day, as he climbed the ranks, Raymond vowed to protect his city, his police force, and citizens. For Raymond this means an uncompromising dedication to his duties, while at the same time juggling the political demands of his office – the grandstanding mayor, the ever-questioning press, and oh yes, his torrid (but secret) romance with District Attorney Sheilah Dannis.
During the aftermath of a shooting in Times Square that left on cop dead and one gravely wounded, Raymond finds himself at the center of the drama when he confronts and takes out cop killer. When the cop killer is revealed to be a radical Islamic terrorist, Raymond’s vow takes him on a dangerous mission to save and protect New York City from another devastating attack – a mission that will take a very personal toll.
The events unfold at a breakneck pace, making The Grave Above the Grave a page-turning novel of suspense and derring-do. The stakes have never been higher.
"No one is better in taking us into the real world threats of international terrorism than Bernie Kerik, a man who has lived it. This page-turning novel makes you appreciate the challenges and threats we face today, and the men and women in our law enforcement communities that stand between good and evil.” -SYLVESTER STALLONE
A gritty, intense, and powerfully written thriller! The Grave Above the Grave is the perfect mix of cops, corruption, and calculating terrorists. Bernie Kerik has scored an absolute home run!
- BRAD THOR, #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF SPYMASTER
"When it comes to cops, Bernie Kerik is the real deal. Locking up the worst of the worst on New York's grittiest streets. Heading America's largest police department. Standing defiantly in the rubble of the World Trade Center on 9/11. And putting together a police service in Baghdad at the close of the Iraq war. Bernie has seen and done it all and brings it to life in The Grave Above the Grave. A sure best seller!" - CONGRESSMAN PETE KING, FORMER CHAIRMAN OF THE US HOUSE HOMELAND SECURITY COMMITTEE
