Killing Faith, by Eric Meyer

The hero of this action / adventure novel is Gabriel de Sade, a NY City detective and former Special Forces operator.   His partner is FBI Agent Faith Ward who, it turns out, has a politically powerful parent.  In this book (the first of the series), they have identified a Russian mafioso as a serial killer operating in New York.  He flees to Russia and our heroes follow.   A Russian Orthodox Bishop just happens to help them out with arms and contacts.  A former Special Forces buddy shows up to help. Action and mayhem ensue.

I can always tell when a writer is faking locations.  Mr. Meyer did a good job, but not good enough, as some UK jargon slipped into the writing.  Which was disorienting, as the story was based in NY.
