In this riveting follow-up to Mafia Summer, Vinny Vesta's torrid affair with his co-pilot's widow brings him, unwittingly and unwillingly, back into the family business. The only question is whether he can escape it again, with his life. Black Widow is a gripping page-turner that brings to life the decadent bachelor-pad living of the Blue Angels, old-Hollywood grandeur, and the maneuverings of Genovese as he takes over the Luciano crime family and alters the face of the New York Mob.
PRAISE FOR MAFIA SUMMER:
"Sweet, affectionate, and bloody: a glance backward to a well-spent youth."--Kirkus Reviews
"With its pedigree, it just may be the perfect summer book."--New York Post, "Required Reading"
