About this book
Crime fiction about a Mafia Protection Racket, set in 1940s Washington DC. Written by this author of seven novels, and independent film producer.
For two local young men, Pete Karras and Joey Recevo, the easiest way to find work after the war is by providing a little muscle for a local boss who runs a protection racket with the Mafia. The trouble with Pete Karras is that he is just too soft on his fellow immigrants, and the last thing the boss wants is for his mob to get soft.
