Johnny Bad Ass

1 Review
This is a love story of a young Irish fighter's climb out of a blue collar neighborhood of Brooklyn into the double-dealing, high stakes world of Las Vegas during the 1960's. The road is full of potholes and death defying, hair-pin curves. At every fork, Johnny ("The Kid") takes the wrong turn that sends him into another whirlwind of suspenseful action. A conservative may label Johnny a stone-cold killer but the average reader will fall in love with him because of his deep sense of loyalty and code of honor. Johnny has an "old soul," an attitude from the Wild West but lives in the 1960's--a true recipe for trouble!

Read the book in 2010 and loved it. Just pulled it out of a box today and my son is already into it. Very well written and grabs a hold of you.
