The novel begins with the death of the heir apparent of a mob family. This death is caused by the hero of the novel, Darwin, although the reader does not know this yet. The problem is, Darwin has so many phobias that reasonably he should not have been anywhere near the massacre that Vincenzo Fuccini has just survived. Darwin is afraid of the dark and it is dark outside. The author suggests that Darwin braved the dark to attend a group therapy session he thought was going on in an abandoned airplane hangar outside of Toronto. Okay, reasonable enough. However, why would a therapy session be held in such a remote area? And didn't Darwin see the burning vehicles, the dead bodies, and the other evidence of the massacre before he got close enough to kill Vincenzo? Didn't he hear gunshots? Who in their right mind would drive toward gunshots? Especially when a bullet has just gone through his windshield. I'm sorry, but I am sure even a frightened man can tell the difference between a bullet in his windshield and a pebble. And who would stop once reaching this massacre, especially after just running down an armed man? Especially a man with phobias.
As the novel continues, the reader meets Darwin's new wife, Rosina. Rosina is a beautiful, simple city girl. Rosina believes her new husband to be a quiet, mild-mannered writer. Rosina supposedly does not know the mob is after her new husband until she boards a plane for Greece and reads in a letter that her man is sending her to Greece alone to protect her. There does not appear to be further explanation. So what does she do?Read more ›
Okay so you have an Italian mob out of Toronto. A normal (well close anyway) young Canadian writer accidentally runs over and kills the Son's dirt bag of a son. What follows is mafia revenge/blood feud. Nothing unusual there. Young Canadian destroys mafia family. Wait! What? Canadian! How? The answer is what makes this book. Paul's answer its the author's strength. I thought some of the mafia violence was over the top. This is part of a trilogy which I intend to read, in fact already have begun #2.
Most liked this book. I found it amusing, but unbelievable.
The hero (who in real life is an author) suddenly takes on the mob and kills all the hit men. How? He has a phobia that sends him into a rage.
Sorry, after he bumps off about 5 hit men, I ran out of disbelief.
Even the FBI is in on it, and he gets them too.
Now, the good part: It was free, and it was a one day read.
Not enough for a glowing review.
Please authors, I'm dying for a great read. I hate writing bad reviews.
The day several crime families meet turns out to be an unlucky one for Darwin. He has enough problems with all his phobias and the big man won't understand that it was all an accident.
Overall, I liked the story, but there was so much violence that I had to close my eyes at times. As I read on, I could tell it seemed necessary to the plot. While this book may not be for the squeamish, it may suit others just fine.
Warning: This is for Mature Audiences due to Graphic Violence, Adult Language, and Sexual Situations.
