Read in April, 2010

A dandy thriller from Hard Case Crime from Blauner when he was just getting started as a writer in the mid-1990s. His hero grew up in Atlantic City the stepson of a local Mafia man. He was told never to ask too many questions about what happened to his real father. When he tries to break into promoting boxing to pay off debts, he finds it impossible to separate himself from the local Cosa Nostra. Probably could have been shorter, especially in some of the conversations that reestablish Mafia rituals and characters we already know, but still a fun way to pass the time and a sign of better to come from Blauner.
