Stark is an endangered species. He’s the last Jewish private detective in the south Bronx and his days may be numbered. It’s the summer of 1965: the Yankees are making another pennant run, the war in Vietnam is heating up, hemlines are rising and the old neighborhood is changing. These days it’s easier to stumble on a mugging than to find a good bagel.  “Stark in the Bronx” is the dazzling first novel by acclaimed historian Saul Landau. A kind of comic noir, Landau’s atmospheric novel is both thrilling and hilarious: imagine the “Maltese Falcon” narrated by Woody Allen
