WOW! That’s the word for this book. This book never stops to let the reader breathe! I don’t care if you like mystery and adventure books or not, you WILL like this one.
Dominic Cavello is a mob boss of the worst your mind can imagine. He has no qualms about shooting or stabbing or choking you to death. Just think of the worst mob boos you have heard of through history and Cavello is at the top of that list. He, of course, has all kinds of mob captain’s, lieutenant’s, and soldiers to carry out his desires. He has unlimited women to do with as he wishes. He has money to buy his way into and out of most everything. I say most everything because he came up against FBI Agent Nick Pellisante in the course of his monstrous life.
Andie DeGrasse is an aspiring actress who was unlucky enough to be picked on a jury panel for Cavello’s trial. Cavello could stare down a machine gun and make it not go off! To have him in the courtroom while a jury was being picked, then also there while his trial was in progress, was danger in action. His stare down would give everyone cold chills and his physical actions would turn your blood to ice water.
A jury is finally picked, Andie DeGrasse was one of the unfortunate ones on that jury. Annie has a son, Jarrod, who is nine-years old. She is a single mother attempting to raise her son as perfect as she can. He was her heart, soul, and love. To be on a jury and worry about Jarrod made it very difficult for Annie. The jury was not sequestered, as the judge was positive everything was under control. Sure it was! With a mob boss like Cavello, nothing was “under control.”
Take my word for it that the trial and succeeding action shows how much Cavello had under HIS control. He had so much security, many soldiers, imported killers, and so many contacts that nothing was under control around Dominic Covello. He had a nickname, “Electrician” that was well deserved. He could look at you, smile, compliment you, and then shoot you in the head as fast as you could blink your eye.
The trials, the story of Nick Pellisante and Andie DeGrassi’s falling in love, the chases around the world to find the hit men as well as Covello, make for an unending series of action. I do not want to spoil what occurs more than I have because this book you will love.
