A murder draws the son of an Atlantic City mobster deep into the world he has tried to escape from
Raised in the Atlantic City Cosa Nostra, Anthony Russo spent his life trying to escape the mob. But his stepfather has dreams for the boy—to be a consigliere or maybe even the capo of his own crew some day. So far, Anthony has stayed away, but one night at a dive called Rafferty’s, not far from the glitz of the casinos, he gets sucked into the whirlpool of organized crime. His stepfather brings him there to kill a rival thug, and even though Anthony balks, the man ends up dead, with Anthony an accessory to the killing. As he falls deeper into the world of easy money and quick death, he must draw on talents he didn’t know he had in order to survive. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Peter Blauner including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.
“A gritty novel with integrity and style.” —James Patterson “This book has it all . . . Peter Blauner is a brilliant young writer.” —James Ellroy “You could cut a lip on his dialogue . . . a honey of a writer.” —The New York Times
Peter Blauner (b. 1959) has spent nearly his entire life in New York City. After graduating from Wesleyan University he took a staff job at New York Magazine, where he found the inspiration for his first book, the Edgar Award–winning Slow Motion Riot, in the men and women who work in the city’s probation department. Since then, he has written five more novels: Casino Moon, the New York Times bestseller The Intruder, Man of the Hour, The Last Good Day, and 2006’s Slipping Into Darkness.
