He then went on to start, build, buy, and sell a number of companies while accumulating commercial investment real estate. Currently, he is the owner of Dunegrass Country Club in Old Orchard Beach, Maine, where he is diligently working on his golf game, as well as his writing skills.
This story of a mob organization in New England takes you into the mind set and culture of this tight knit family. If you liked the Soprano Saga then you will love this story. Pugliares deeply develops the main characters and the setting. The good guys can be bad and the bad guys have almost redeeming qualities. The locations are painted out so successfully. You can smell the espresso in the ristorante, and in some cases, the blood in the trunk. The book is laces with irony and humor but no more than real life would deal out. I Each chapter is contains an addictive element that will not allow you to put the darn book down for very long. My only complaint is that there isn't a sequel waiting for me to pick up for next week! Get writing, DP!
What's it take to become a sublime expounder of prose like yuoreslf?
Loved the story! It kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I never knew what was coming next. .. then it hits you! This was a heart pumping crime family drama. Looking forward to part II.
