A BROTHERHOOD BETRAYED: The Man Behind the Rise and Fall of Murder, Inc. by Michael Cannell
“Cannell dials in the right level of detail in this grim story of violence, corruption, and the dogged efforts of law enforcement to break organized crime’s hold on New York City. Readers interested in a non-sensationalized treatment of a major chapter in American crime will be riveted.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
THE NIGHTWORKERS by Brian Selfon
“Sefton’s ambitious, character-driven debut tells the interconnected stories of ‘a perfectly wonderful, perfectly Brooklyn family of misfits’: Shecky Keenan, a fastidious small-time money launderer; Henry Vek, an aspiring artist and one of Shecky’s couriers; and Kerasha Brown, a poetry-loving, talented thief recently released on probation.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
