Al Marsigliaabout this book: Although my novel Contract Pending is fiction, the characters depicted are based on real-life characters I encountered growing up and living in the Bronx. Many were either in "the life" or operating on the fringes of crime.
What amazed me upon publishing this book were the comments made by people who read the book. Remarks like "I couldn't put the book down" "I lost three days of my life because I had to finish the book" and many similar remarks.
The story of Frankie Fiore, the protagonist of my book, could have been anyone's son in my neighborhood of the Bronx. In fact,in my youth, my mother who was left a widow with four young boys upon the sudden death of my father from a sepsis infection, (before penicillin was discovered) was approached by the local mafioso in an attempt to recruit us boys into the "life" at a young age. My mother, in no uncertain terms, would have none of it.
Contract Pending has received 27 five star reviews and one 4 star review on the Amazon site.
