Harry Fox witnessed Nicole Adams, the woman he had fallen for head over heels three decades ago, being kidnapped outside a supermarket on one of Manhattan’s streets. “Playboy” and “Roy Dickerson” are the last words Harry hears Nicole scream out before being taken away. In a bid to rescue her, Harry contacts private investigator Luke Rizzo to help him find Nicole. Luke realizes that Nicole is involved with the Gambino family (a mafia family). Before Luke can further his investigations, Nicole reappears and resumes her former job as a manager of the Gambino family’s chain of bars, and Roy Dickerson is murdered. Why was Dickerson murdered? Are Nicole and others in danger? Ignoring a stern warning to keep his nose out of the mafia family business, Luke Rizzo gets down to investigating the Gambino family with the help of members of the NYPD. Get yourself Howard Giordano’s The Dark Side of the City to know how it all goes down.
If you are looking for a tangled crime thriller, Howard Giordano’s The Dark Side of the City is just what you need. Grab a bag of popcorn and sit back because once you start flipping through the pages, there is no stopping. Giordano hatches an intriguing plot featuring spell-binding twists and an exciting cast. His great style of writing kept me on edge with suspense, tension, action, and thrills. Giordano exhibits his sense of wit through the conversations he relates and I laughed a lot while reading. His scene depictions are vivid, which made me feel that I was next to his cast members, watching them closely but helplessly. His narration is effortless, switching between scenes while at the same time digging through the past and the present. The cast was amazingly developed. There are underbosses, dangerous wingmen, money laundering, guns, espionage, dirty deals, secrets, blackmail, and so much more.
