The Friendship of Criminals

A Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Former criminal defense attorney Robert Glinski's THE FRIENDSHIP OF CRIMINALS explodes off the page with the crackling intensity of Scorsese's THE DEPARTED. When a new head of the Italian mob threatens Port Richmond's long entrenched Polish crime boss Anton Bielakowski the various criminal factions of Philadelphia don't know who to trust and the promise of war simmers in the underworld. With the help of the FBI monitoring Anton's every move, it's all just a question of who's going to go to jail first... or die. This is a sensational debut that cannot be missed by a rare talent with promise.

From Publishers Weekly

05 January 2015 – In Glinski's strong first novel, the imprisonment of Italian-American mob boss Tom Monte leaves a vacancy at the top of his Philadelphia crime organization. In the subsequent fight for leadership, Raymond Rea wins. Rea flexes his newfound muscles by reneging on agreements made with the city's other crime families, including a Polish outfit controlled by the ruthless Anton Bielakowski, a 60-year mob veteran. Believing he can outwit the old-timer, Rea precipitates a struggle that exposes a fascinating world of lawyers, FBI agents, motorcycle gang members, and defendants awaiting trial. All of them must figure out whom to support and whom they can trust, because their lives and fortunes depend on making the right choices. Glinski vividly portrays the seamy side of Philadelphia, while providing absorbing backstories for all the major characters. As the battle wages, the action sweeps the reader along toward the satisfying climax.
