Last of The Good Guys

Crime / Mystery

LoveReading View on Last of The Good Guys

The author is being pretty secretive about himself no doubt to add to the idea that he has lived in this world and is protecting his identity. Who cares whether he has or not because this is a brilliant book that throws you in to the world of organised crime full pelt and doesnât let up through out. If you love The Godfather, Goodfellas, The Sopranos  or anything along those lines you will delight in this book and for those who have never dabbled then pick this up and have a read, you will be mesmerised.

Last of The Good Guys Synopsis

All Marco wants is to be a stand-up guy. To make his way in the world without too much trouble. Right? But in 1970s New York, that's not so easy. Marco has the Mafia in his blood and at only sixteen years old he hears the streets calling. So he goes into business with a few guys. Dealing a little pot.

Then Marco's ruthless Uncle Tony gets involved. Uncle Tony is the man Marco most looks up to, but he wants Marco and his friends to help him out. Just a little cocaine. A few more deals - and then Marco'll be set for life...

But when it all goes wrong, it's more than Marco's life on the line. It's those he loves and the struggle to break free from the chains of crime which bind him...which stop him. Can he survive to be A GOOD GUY?
