Synopsis (Amazon):
A Thriller about Murder, Mystery, and Family. It’s easy to give your life for someone you love. It’s much harder to kill for them. ~Nicky Fusco For a select few people, friendship lasts forever. Nicky Fusco and Frankie Donovan were friends like that, but that was years ago. Now Frankie’s a detective in Brooklyn’s Homicide department, and Nicky is a reformed hit man. But when Frankie gets in trouble–and the law can’t help him–he turns to Nicky. The problem is that Nicky promised his family, and God, that he’d go straight.

My Thoughts and Opinion:
I was first introduced to this author when I read the first book in this series, Murder Takes Time. I was blown away with his debut novel, and quite honestly, was skeptical if the 2nd book would do the same. Did it?

Within the first few sentences the reader is reacquainted with Frankie “Bugs” Donovan, NYPD and Nicky “The Rat” Fusco. And thus begins a page turning read. A book of non stop action including murders, kidnapping, drugs, friendship, honor and loyalty.

Short chapters, alternating with the characters, had mini cliff hangers that teases the reader to “read just one more chapter” and realization that another 5 chapters have been read. I found myself trying to read faster so I could get to the next few chapters to find out where the story would bring me. The writing fluid and descriptive so that the imagery created was vivid.  The story believable.

Was the 2nd in this series as good? Absolutely!! It was another “could not put down” experience that has left this reader waiting anxiously for the next book, Murder Takes Patience due out in March.
