Brotherly bonds are tested by criminal connections in Edgar Award-winning author Warren Murphy's Bloodline, a gritty historical novel about the Mafia in 1920s New York.

The Falcones are a respected immigrant family living in New York City in 1920. But their peaceful existence is compromised when their cousin Nilo arrives after causing several deaths in a fight in Italy. Soon enough Nilo is wreaking havoc in his new city, falling in with the Italian Mafia, and working as a still-wrecker, assassin, and skilled criminal. His cousins Tommy and Mario, a cop and a priest, both do their best to turn a blind eye. But as conflicts in the city begin to erupt into a violent war involving gangsters from all parts of the country, the brothers may be left with no other choice but to join the Mafia themselves.

Sorry, Mario Puzo, but Warren Murphy's highly entertaining book on the fictionalized origins of La Cosa Nostra is the epitome of mob writing!
Mr. Murphy's final book before his death, I'm sorry to say - - thought his Grandmaster was also entertaining.
