After a year of marriage, Judge Deborah Knott and Sheriff's Deputy Dwight Bryant are off to New York City for a long-delayed honeymoon. January might not be the perfect time to take a bite of the Big Apple, but Dwight's sister-in-law has arranged for them to stay in her Upper West Side apartment for a week.

Deborah had been asked to deliver a package to Lieutenant Sigrid Harald of the NYPD from Sigrid's Colleton County grandmother. But when the homicide detective comes to pick it up, the package is missing and the building's super is found murdered. Now despite their desire to enjoy a blissful winter getaway, Deborah and Dwight must team up with Lt. Harald to catch the killer before he strikes again.

set in New York city
Deborah and Dwight finally get to have some honeymoon time;
Set in New York City; fresh environmental details;
This I rated again as a 3 star; good reading. My rating seems tough, but; this novel won the year 2011 Agatha Award.
I do get confused about the who is who in the plots of all of Maron's stories; it feels like there's about 50 or more branches of people related to each plot, branches off a tree, but I do get confounded.
In this plot, set in NYCity, detective Sigrid Harald (Maron's other Series) is introduced in this plot and she spends time investigating the murder/s with important investigative contributions from Deborah and Dwight.

Interesting confluence of Maron's two series, but I can't help feeling she could have done more with it.
