Editorial Reviews

Review

  • All I can say is wow. This book had it all. Action, Adventure, Suspense. I couldnt even stop reading it.
  • This story, for me, it has all the vital ingredients, action, adventure, murder, mystery, and romance. This author's attention to detail has meant that he has also added a lot of fascinating history about New Orleans and the famous pirate Jean Lafitte.

About the Author

I grew up in Queens, New York and after retiring from the FDNY I moved to sunny South Florida where I live with my wife Giovanna. I began writing books to help pay for my grandchildren’s college education. So far I've completed 15 novels and nine short stories including my popular 'ENGINE 24 FIRE STORIES' trilogy which includes the 5th installment in the ’STARLIGHT CLUB' series. LAFITTE'S TREASURE has been published now i plan to edit 'THE STARLIGHT CLUB 5: VENGENCE' which i shelved to write LAFITTE’S TREASURE. then i plan on writing a sequel to THE ADVENTURES OF THE LONE JACK KID. AWARDS THE STARLIGHT CLUB won the silver in the 2012 eLit contest in the ‘True Crime category'. in 2013 it won honorable mention in the ‘Historical Fiction category’ and Finalist in 2014 in the IPPY and Eric Hoffer awards, THE LONE JACK KID won ‘Finalist' in the 2013 readers favorite ‘Western' category. My short story 'FIRE: BOX 598' won the bronze in the 2013 Readers Favorite contest in the ‘Historical Non Fiction category'. Go figure. if i would have known that i could write a good story, i would have started writing a half century ago.

All I can say is wow. This book had it all. Action, Adventure, Suspense. I couldnt even stop reading it. I found myself reading this book in the morning, evening, and even to my newborn at night to help him fall asleep. I dont want to spoil the story but I was shocked with how everything turned out in the end. I have never been one to be into books that includes things such as pirates but this story was different than what I anticipated, in many ways. The author is brilliant and this was really a great book to read. There is so much more I would love to say about this book but it is just something that has to be read.

This book begins way back in the past, and Governor Claiborne of Louisiana’s refusal to meet with the pirate Jean Lafitte, denouncing him as a “Hellish Banditti,” a decision which was to affect the lives of future generations of both families, and others.

For in 1813, the British had approached Jean Lafitte, asking them to join them in fighting the Americans, they had no idea of what sort of a man he was. He was a pirate, yes, but he was also a mason and lived his life by their codes of honour. Luckily, General Jackson recognised those codes and virtues also, and the rest as they say is history...

The decisions we make in life not only affect us, and the lives of those around us, but their repercussions can be felt, as ripples, far into the future. Eventually though these ripples do start to settle, and so it is, that through chance events and discoveries, the lives of two people, who had previously never met, converge.

The legacies, left to Eddie, and Julianna, bond them as they embark on their exciting and dangerous adventure. Following clues left in the past, they travel to New Orleans on their quest to discover the lost treasure, however, they are not the only ones who know about it, other’s want it too, and will do anything to procure it.

This story, for me, it has all the vital ingredients, action, adventure, murder, mystery, and romance. This author’s attention to detail has meant that he has also added a lot of fascinating history about New Orleans and the famous pirate Jean Lafitte.
I can thoroughly recommend it to lovers of treasure hunting action adventures and think it would make a great film.

This was a fantastic book. I read it straight through in one day. Couldn't put it down. A master of history woven with a mystery and intrigue in a fascinating story. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more Joe Corso books in the future.

Mr.Corso is a good author and I really enjoyed Lafitte's Treasure. The pace of the story was quick enough to keep it interesting but detailed enough to be realistic. There was only one half page of gratuitous sex between the two major characters and I think that even my mother could read this without blushing. I don't want to be a spoiler but the bad guys got what they deserved and the good guys came out on top. It's up to you to enjoy how it happened.

The plot was good and the story moved along well but the the female in the story was lacking in any depth, and seemed to be a decoration and not a real character with a real role in the book. Other than that I enjoyed the book.

I read this book was not bad but it is not a 5 star book in any way sense or form. The book starts out ok but the characters are very predictable and wafer thin. The story becomes less and less plausible and the ending way way too much. I think in the hangs of a more experience writer it could have been a very good book.

Great book. Set up was in the past and I was set to read a pirate adventure. Then it switches to the present and you become involved in an exciting adventure with action and romance. It was a hard book to put down. The ending was a total surprise.. I totally recommend this book.

Joe Corso's background as a firefighter, his solid historical research, and his knowledge of Freemasons and the settings and places described in the story, creates a strong sense of realism in this exciting novel. If you liked the Da Vinci Code and would enjoying reading another fast-paced thriller with ingenious plot, I highly recommend Lafitte's Treasure.
