A New York detective's investigation of a Catholic priest's murder leads him to a shocking drug plot that reaches the highest seats of American power

Detective Mel Freedman's life changes forever the day Joe Cullen walks into his New York City office to confess to murder. Cullen, a pilot and Vietnam veteran, has come to admit his guilt in the murder of an American priest, thrown from a helicopter to his death in the jungles of El Salvador 800 feet below. But when a prostitute to whom Cullen also confessed turns up dead, Freedman quickly realizes that there is much more to Cullen's story than meets the eye. As he digs deeper into the mystery, Freedman unravels a tangled web of conspiracy stretching from the cocaine fields of Central America all the way to CIA headquarters.  
 
Tense and thought-provoking, The Confession of Joe Cullen is a powerful thriller about government corruption and the individuals who try to combat it, by one of the most masterful American writers of the twentieth century.

About the Author

Howard Fast was born January 11, 1914. The grandson of Jewish immigrants from Ukraine, he was raised in a poor family, and his politics have always been an important part of his life and work. A fighter for anti-Fascist causes and a member of the Communist party, he was jailed for three months during the 1950s for refusing to testify about his political activity. Blacklisted as a result, he founded his own publishing house, Blue Heron Press, which released his novel Spartacus (1951), which was made into a popular film in 1960. Some of his works were written under the pseudonym E. V. Cunningham. Fast's first novel was published in 1933 during the Great Depression, and he has had a solidly successful career ever since. Considered to be one of the world's most widely read writers, his books have been translated into 82 languages. More than 10 of his novels have been made into films, and The Immigrants (1977) was made into a television miniseries in 1979. His novels are page-turners, in which characters struggle with personal, political, and religious questions in their lives. The female characters-a number of his books have female protagonists-are strong, intelligent, and capable people who must fight to maintain their families and their fortunes amidst the tumultuous events of the twentieth century. Howard Fast died on March 12, 2003.
