Jim Cirni's Powerful Trilogy of Critically Acclaimed New York Mob Novels in One Volume
"Fast-paced, streetwise, and sharp as a garrote." Kirkus Reviews
The owner of a Queens supper club popular with mobsters becomes the patsy in a gambling swindle that could spark an underworld war.
A bartender at a mob bar secretly witnesses a murder...and gets dragged by his wife into a outrageous scheme to blackmail the Godfather, a homicidal chocolate addict.
A low-level thug takes a bullet meant for the boss' kid and ends up on the fast-track to becoming a made man...if he isn't killed first in a mob war or by his girlfriend who wants him to go straight.
Cirni hauls out all of his shiniest toys for this gangland adventure.
For those who prefer the hardboiled genre, The Big Squeeze is a sleek, shapely model with a deep stain of irony.
Cirni does grainy dialogue, fast, funny and he doesn't get cute.
Fast-paced, streetwise, and sharp as a garrote.
Cleverly and wittily drawn.
