DEAD SOPRANO, A BAYSIDE CITY BOOK, EPISODE ONE
Only the strong will survive in this city in turmoil!
The four ethnic mobs of Bayside City are vying for control of the town, and they will stop at nothing to get it. There's not a lot to stop them other than a few honest cops and each other. One man, Detective Sergeant Dick Devereux, has the world on his shoulders as he tries to fight injustice in this noir-style, hardboiled gangster thriller.
After the death of his wife and daughter accidentally at the hands of rival mobs a few years before, Devereux wants vengeance. A body's been found in the Docklands area, that of Mario Zambrotta, a famous opera singer, and Devereux's on the case. He suspects the Jews did it headed by Avi Baumshinsky. As he goes about town looking for suspects, he unravels some dark secrets from the highest echelons of the city's government.
Dead Soprano, A Bayside City Book, Episode One, is the first instalment of five to come: Purple Haze, Red Magic, Honey Bee, Killer Toast and the last in the series, Tiger Dawn!**
