Paddy Hirsch is a writer, a journalist, and as he states…an explainer. He has worked in news for nearly 20 years, but recently has been writing fiction. His first novel, The Devil’s Half Mile, a historical thriller, set in New York in 1799. The Devil’s Half Mile is a nickname for Wall Street, so it won’t surprise you to hear the story has themes of high finance, corruption and criminality. His second book, a sequel, Hudson’s Kill, is equally gripping .
