Editorial Reviews


From Doubleshot BookReviews
"Nicholas Denmon's  For Nothing captured me from the amazingly descriptiveopening chapter. It captivated me. Itsent shivers down my spine. It made me look over my shoulder tosee if Silvio Dante was sneaking up ready to take me out...ForNothing is a fantastic story thatI highly suggest for fans of mafia basedthriller/mysteries or those who just like a really good story."
From LitDrunkWordpress
"This book wasamazing! For Nothing is certainly apage-turner in its own right. Action packed and so well written, it is a thriller that should be ranked with the works of DennisLehane and the like. Nicholas Denmon speaks through his characterswith a voice that stuns you withevery word."
From Big Time Books
"For all the Mafia thriller junkies out there...FOR NOTHINGis your "fix".

Able to compete with Goodfellas,Sopranos, and The Godfather, Nicolas Denmon has created a story that willhave you on the edge of your seat, andunable to put it down." 
From HodgepodgeGalore Book Reviews
"A novel of this depth and vision, Nicholas Denmon writeswith the maturity and precision of awell-aged author.  The reader can feel the raw yet emotional toll of the live or die lifestyle...  Mafiakillers...are generally known to be smooth and calculating, which not-socoincidentally describes ForNothing."
Reading In The Wings
"Nicholas Denmon does a greatjob at crafting a story that really draws you in. For Nothing has everything from dirty cops and larger than life gangsters to assassinsand corruption. Feel like you are there... it felt soauthentic...  I rate the novel as anA because of its thrilling plot (the endingblew me away) and well-crafted characters."

About the Author

Nicholas Denmon studied English at the University of Florida. He started story telling from the moment he could talk and has spent a lifetime perfecting the art. His life has been varied, giving him no shortage of material. Some of his unique experiences include growing up with a schizophrenic mother, having six brothers and sisters (of which he is the middle-younger child), a perfectionist father, an evil step-mother, a college life to rival Tucker Max, and working for politicians on the Presidential as well as local stage. He has been, at times, a devout Catholic, a closet atheist, and an honorary member of the Jewish tribe. Nick's joy of art knows little in the way of limitations, as he loves unique paintings, music, acting, film, and of course writing.
