Book Review The Starlight Club

Cover to useTitle: The Starlight Club

Author: Joe Corso

Genre: Crime

The Starlight Club was jumping . . .

“They looked like mob guys. They had that arrogance exuded by those who liked to intimidate – those who were the proud purveyors of fear.” Amidst the nightly gaiety was the back room, where business deals were made, hits were ordered, and territories were divided. An image of the author is also attached.

Trenchie not being a “rat” is just released from his ten year prison sentence. A new life is waiting – complete with envelopes of money and a steak house to call his own. He finds the woman of his dreams who brings along ex-husband baggage. Hit man Jimmy The Hat finds unexpected fame in the most unlikely of places, yet he always stays true to the “boys”, especially Big Red. “Crazy Joey Gallo” and his brothers break away from the Profaci family and go “rogue, on their own now. They split their gang into several small groups and spread them out over the five boroughs.”

The Starlight club can be purchased on amazon http://www.amazon.com/The-Starlight-Club-ebook/dp/B0098L3LQW/ref=sr_1_1?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1353949837&sr=1-1&keywords=the+starlight+club

The Starlight Club tells of mafia life in the sixties, of gangs battling each other, of mobsters and their own, strange code of honor, of fighting for what one believes in, of loyalty.

The action scenes are written masterfully, but the attempt at romance could’ve been best left out, if you ask me. It doesn’t seem to suit the novel, nor the author’s writing style.

I found some grammar and spellling errors that distracted me from the story, but overall, it was an enjoyable read.
