Book Description

Inspired by true events, this fast-paced thriller takes us to the Transylvanian Carpathian Mountains and introduces us to the underworld of professional pit bull fighting rings and international drug trafficking. The story follows the adventures of three friends who played together on the streets of Galati, by the Danube River, under the shadow of Ceausescu’s communist regime. The boys grow to be men; and their playground changes. In post-communist Romania, whatever innocence they had as children is lost yet their loyalty to each other remains.
Radu, volatile and violent, makes his home deep in the dark forests of Transylvania, far from the civilized world he despises. His one passion is for pit bulls; his dream to breed and train a champion fighter. Lorin lives in Bucharest. The mildest in temperament of the three, his work as a drug dealer necessitates he keeps his finger on the pulse; his love for his woman an anchor in an insane world. Stefan, the porn star, self-indulgent and aloof, moves to Prague, where he can indulge his wild side in a more liberal culture.
From the back alleys of Lima, Peru, to the underground erotica of Berlin, the three money-driven friends thrive on adrenaline and testosterone, taking no prisoners as they struggle with love, sex, betrayal, and loyalty. This men's own adventure is an eye-opener, taking readers to an underworld they have only ever heard of.

Format:Paperback
Reading this novel was a genuine pleasure! It took me by surprise, it was as if I was watching a movie, the images are extremely vivid, and, even though quite brutal at times, I found the psychological background extremely interesting, as well as the historical and social information on the Romanian underworld. The novel is completely different than what is being written nowadays, painting with strong colors in a rather grey world. I strongly recommend this thriller as a must for anyone who likes their read to take them to a completely different universe. And the fact that it is inspired by true events only enhances the experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars grand book March 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
at first i was a bit skeptical, as I'm not a big fan of violent thrillers, but I have to say that this book really caught me off guard. Its really well written, fast paced and intense, I found the insights on criminal behaviour and fascinating. I also enjoyed the historical information about romanias turbulent past and of course the beautiful country and its scenery described in the book. The main character doesnt seem to different from his ancient ancestor, Dracula himself!

I couldn't put this book down; it had me captivated from the first chapter. A great story about true friendship, loyalty, violence, love, eroticism, historical information, all intertwined in the bleak harsh realm of the Romanian organized crime.
I strongly recommend this thriller as a must for anyone who likes to read books that are inspired by true events. This book only enhances the experience. I hope to see more books from Vlad Vorgal.

The exciting adventures of three young men, which are revealed in this book, keep me engaged the entire read by his ability to capture my imagination with a great story about true friendship, loyalty, love and the courage of being themself in a dangerous and obscure world i have only heard of.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent March 9, 2014
By vadim
Format:Paperback
This novel is completely different than anything I've read before! It takes the reader to a dark and rather violent universe, governed by different rules than the ones we know and accept. A genuine page-turner, this eye-opening thriller will not allow you to exit its universe until the very end, leaving you craving for more!
