I've only read one other Piccirilli novel, and can't figure out if it's my cup of tea. He has a very lyrical style of writing that is pleasing, with sharp dialogue and memorable characters. This one is a mafia style crime drama with dashes of the supernatural and dark humor. If you like noir style crime fiction then you'll enjoy this. If you like your horror to be subtle, delving into the supernatural, they you'll enjoy this. If you like both, then you should definitely check this out. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553587218, Mass Market Paperback)

The night Johnny Danetello drove a dying girl through the streets of Brooklyn in his cab, he was trying to save her life. Instead he ran down a cop and lost her and his freedom. Every day in prison, Johnny knew that Angie Monticelli’s family blamed him for her death, and that going home would be suicide. But Johnny has unfinished business with his former friend turned mob boss, Vinny Monticelli.

Now Johnny has returned to converse with the doomed and the dead–and wait for Vinny to make his move. Survivors of a long-ago freak accident, the two men share access to alternate realities no one else can know–and to a past and present that will all become the same in a city only one of them can leave alive. . . .

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:15:51 -0400)

Returning home to Brooklyn after two years in prison to settle his accounts with both the living and the dead, Johnny Danetello is headed for a showdown with his old friend and nemesis, Vinny Monticelli.
