A Page Turner
The plot is good except for some minor inconsistencies, but for a debut novel, this is a real page turner and I read it within a couple of days, in spite of it not being my usual reading genre. Although complete within itself, the ending leaves room for further books following the Fratelli family. If you like gangster stories, this book will appeal. It is a book for the over 18s in my opinion.
