Editorial Reviews

About the Author

The book is informed by Carolyn Arturi’s own experiences with organized crime. Her father was involved with crime families in New York and New Jersey, offering a window into a crime world that taught her about the inescapable violence that comes with the lifestyle. Kirkus Reviews: "A goodfella recounts his life of crime, killing and evading the law in this pitch-perfect dark novel." "Arturi's debut reads like a long, comfortable conversation with the narrator as he looks back on a life well-lived, one he considers honorable, generous, and family-focused." "The author's ability to mimic the genuine sentiment and chatter among members of organized crime is amply demonstrated." "An engrossing mob life tale told in an authentic voice."

Carolyn Arturi, a New Jersey native, was raised in the world of organized crime. Her father was a well-known mobster, and while she enjoyed the luxury that accompanied his lifestyle, she grew to fear the brutality it brought.

Arturi recieved an exceptional review from Kirkus Indie for her work as follows:

"A goodfella recounts his life of crime, killing, and evading the law in this pitch-perfect dark novel"

Format: Paperback
I cannot believe the details in this book! I couldn't imagine living that kind of life myself but seeing through the eyes of someone that does what, for me, so detailed, so nerve wracking. Yet, I could not put the book down.

I hope to see this book turn into a series or movie and I do hope the author continues to expound on this topical and all of the effects it had on her life.

I found the book to be both entertaining written very well by the author. many of us grew up in an ERA that had a lot of corruption and dirty things our families may have done that we heard about but not many put it out there for the world to see... Next novel should be as good as this was
