Retired N.Y. officer publishes first crime novel
By Carol Demare
ALBANY, N.Y. — A retired New York City police officer who moved to Albany a couple of years ago for the "quiet life" has had his first crime novel published.
Severn House, a British company, published Bob Knightly's "Bodies In Winter," which centers on the New York Police Department from which Knightly retired as a lieutenant. After he left work as a cop on the mean streets of the Bushwick section of Brooklyn, one of many high-crime areas to which he was assigned, Knightly worked for 18 years as a criminal defense lawyer with the New York City Legal Aid Society. He now practices law in Albany and Troy.
