An outstanding debut novel. Gritty, realistic depiction of the poor side of New York in the 1950s, rife with mobsters, gangs, crooked cops, and power struggles, all centered around 13-year-old Angelo, who is forced to grow up fast in the midst of this chaos because of his father's mysterious disappearance six years earlier.

The dialogue rings true, and Chiarkas sets the scene in a sparse but complete way, hitting all the senses just enough to drop the reader into the lower East Side projects. The story POV jumps from one character to another at the right times to provide continuity to a plot which has multiple subplots that all wind their way back to the disappearance of Angelo's father.

I'm looking forward to the sequel, "Nunzio's Way."
