"Giacomo Giammatteo may be the Mario Puzo of our time. His debut novel is breathtaking and groundbreaking. He creates a story that involves the conflicts of reality that pull at us from both sides of the tracks. This isn't your typical mob story."
From Keri English for Indie Reader:
"Murder Takes Time plows through your mind like a freight train. Heavy hitting and well crafted, Giacomo Giammatteo delves into the New York underworld from a fresh perspective. Part mob story, part psychological thriller, this book is not for the weak of heart (or stomach!) This is a new breed of book."
Murder Takes Time (Friendship and Honor book 1) by Giacomo Giammatteo is one of those "wow" factor books.
This is more than just a murder mystery; it is a love story and a thriller as well. It is a story of life and love, of friendship, betrayal and anger.
Right from page one, this is a book that reels you in, dumping you firmly into the thick of things. This is not an easy read by any means; not a book that you can whip through and still understand what happened. This is complex, deep and intriguing. It requires concentration, but no reader will ever regret the time it takes to read a novel of this magnitude.
I was hooked from the very first page, drawn into the story and unable to let go of it. The unusual way in which the story is told is what grabs your attention first. Add to this the strong storyline, a plot that is forever deepening yet becoming clearer with each page, and excellent character development and this story is worthy of anyone's time, no matter whether it is a genre that attracts you or not.
It is packed with action, packed with twists and turns, and it is a book that you will never forget.
