Murder Takes Time by Giacomo Giammatteo
But children grow up. Tony is a rising star in the Mob, with Suit his constant companion. Bugs has become a cop, a homicide detective torn between his childhood loyalties and the law. Nicky, who went to prison rather than give up his friends, has just been released, only to find his long time love married to someone else. Unable to get work, he soon becomes an enforcer for the Mob.
Now, gruesome murders are happening, and Bugs suspects that Nicky may be behind them. Can he solve the murders before more occur and find a way to balance his friendships and his work?
Gaimmatteo has written an authentic Italian mobster mystery. The book is told in the voices of the various characters, allowing the reader to understand the motivations behind their actions. The plotline is compelling, and the resolution is satisfying. This book is recommended for mystery lovers.
