John Florio, BLIND MOON ALLEY
Jersey Leo is an albino born of a black man and a white woman living in the 1930’s. As if that isn’t enough of a problem for Jersey, he is also involved with evil women, mobsters, and crooked cops. When a childhood friend escapes from death row where he is about to be executed for killing a crooked cop, Jersey feels obligated to help him, and this leads Jersey into a complicated web of deceit and death.
Written in lively period dialogue, this is a book that will hold your attention from beginning to end as Jersey attempts to help his friend, save his own life, and finally begin living the life he desires. I look forward to reading future books in this series.
