Review of THE PRESIDENT STREET BOYS by Frank DiMatteo

THE PRESIDENT STREET BOYS Frank DiMatteo July 2016 Kensington OK, first off, this is not a true crime mafia tell all. It is actually a memoir. Second, yes, there is death and mayhem, but not how you expect. Third, it’s not about a single gangster. It’s about the crew and the world around them. Some of you will pick up this book with preconceived notions. I did. That changed fast and it will for you readers as well. I digress; let me go back to the beginning. Frank DiMatteo was born into a world of mafia hitmen in 1950s South...

The Jay Stringer Interview

Dan & Kate: Reluctant PI Sam Ireland returns in October’s HOW TO KILL FRIENDS AND IMPLICATE PEOPLE. How has Sam’s life changed since we last saw her in WAYS TO DIE IN GLASGOW? Jay: Sam was a very reluctant PI in WAYS TO DIE IN GLASGOW. She was really only doing it out of a sense of obligation to her father.

In fact, maybe she likes it too much now, and is too keen to jump into dangerous situations. The violence she’s...

Author Workspace: Jonathan Stone

AUTHOR WORKSPACE: JONATHAN STONE Here it is. In all its glorious discomfort, annoyance, and frustration, though supreme reliability. My regular seat on the 8:01 from Talmadge Hill to Manhattan. It’s an hour and four minute commute in to New York in the morning, and the same back out at the end of the day. I’ve written seven novels here, and I can hardly believe it myself. In truth, my “regular” seat has moved around a little. When I started writing on the train, in 1998, laptops were comparatively big and clumsy, and I had to sit in the seats...
