Three decades in the life of Jewish gangster, Alex Cohen, as he arrives in the US and forges a life
for himself and his family using the blood, sweat and tears of those who stand in his way. I’ve been lucky enough to read these books as they’ve been released, and in my opinion, with each book the series just gets better and better. So with the release of this box set, I’m thrilled to be able to join the blog tour and share the links to my original reviews of each of these excellent books. Many thanks to Damp Pebbles Tours for giving me the opportunity!
This digital box set contains the first three books in the saga of Alex Cohen’s life:
The Bowery Slugger: When Alex Cohen arrives in 1915 America, he seizes the land of opportunity
with both hands and grabs it by the throat. But success breeds distrust and Alex must choose
between controlling his gang and keeping his friend alive. What would you do if the person you
trusted most is setting you up to die at your enemies’ hands?
East Side Hustler: Alex returns from the Great War almost destroyed by the horrors he has
experienced. When he is plucked from certain death by an old friend, he commits to making so much
money he’ll never know that agony again. But the route to the top is filled with danger and every
time he helps one of his powerful friends like Al Capone, he acquires more enemies who want to see
him dead. The turmoil caused by the death of organised crime financier, Arnold Rothstein means
Alex must once more fight for his life. How far would you go to seize the American dream? And
could you protect your family along the way from the fellas who want to see you dead?
Midtown Huckster: Alex runs Murder Inc for Lucky Luciano. After the death of Prohibition he must
find a new way to make money, just as the cops are baying at his heels. When Luciano goes down for
racketeering, Alex loses his protection and is arrested for tax evasion-he must decide between
saving his skin and ratting out his friends. If he chooses prison time then his gang will fall apart and
he will end up with nothing. If he squeals then he will have to flee the city he loves and the family he
once adored. What would you do in a world where nobody can be trusted and you have everything
