BROOKLYN JUSTICE by J.L. Abramo. "[Nick Ventura] drove me to write five short stories involving him," Abramo says. "They appear sequentially — covering a period of ten months — and feature many recurring supporting characters. Call it what you will — a collection of shorter fiction or a novel in stories." More
BROOKLYN JUSTICE is a wild ride through the streets of the Borough of Churches. Private investigator Nick Ventura knows trouble — but not how to keep his nose out of it. A pool of blood spreading across a casino poker table, a Buick plowing through a storefront with a dead detective aboard, a fatal rendezvous in the shadow of a Coney Island landmark, a childhood friend gunned down walking his dog in the wrong place at the wrong time, a film distributor who thinks he can get away with murder through intimidation and violence, a mob boss assassinated leaving a neighborhood restaurant, and the particular brand of retribution necessary to level the playing field in the fourth largest city in America — J.L. Abramo serves it all up with a vengeance.
Praise for BROOKLYN JUSTICE …
"In BROOKLYN JUSTICE, award winning author J.L. Abramo again demonstrates his firm grasp on the language and morality of his native streets, with as many surprises as there are casualties. An ideal follow-up to his acclaimed novel GRAVESEND." — The Denver Review
"If grit, hard guys, and the rhythm of the mean streets is your thing, BROOKLYN JUSTICE has got them in spades and J.L. Abramo is your man." — Reed Farrel Coleman, New York Times Bestselling author of WHERE IT HURTS
