9780399153556: White Shadow

Tampa, Florida, 1955: a city pulsing with Sicilian and Cuban gangsters, cigar factories, sweet rum, and violence. The bludgeoning death of retired kingpin Charlie Wall shocks the city and sends cops and reporters and associates scrambling to discover the truth. When the old White Shadow ruled the city, plenty of his enemies tried-and failed-to kill him. Many are left wondering about the final hand of the old bootlegger and gambler. As the trail winds through neighborhoods rich and poor, enmeshing the innocent and corrupt alike all the way down to the streets and casinos of Havana, an extraordinary story of revenge, honor, and greed emerges. For Charlie Wall had his secrets, and he guarded them well. And those secrets could destroy a criminal empire and ignite a revolution.

About the Author:

ACE ATKINS is the author of eleven previous books, including two Quinn Colson novels, The Ranger—nominated for the 2012 Edgar Award for Best Novel—and The Lost Ones. In addition, he has been selected by the Robert B. Parker estate to continue the Spenser novels, the first of which, Robert B. Parker’s Lullaby, was a New York Times bestseller. He lives on a farm outside Oxford, Mississippi.

From AudioFile:

In Tampa in 1955, a time of Cuban neighborhoods and cigar factories, Sicilian and Cuban gangsters competed to control the city's illicit activities. One of the most colorful characters was Charlie Wall, a crime boss and political operative. His assassination by a pair of thugs is the starting point of this novel, closely based on fact. William Dufris gives some figures slight vocal characterizations, which help identify characters in passages of extended dialogue. At the close of the book there are fascinating interviews with the author, the first reporter on the murder scene, a sheriff's officer at the time, and the police interview with the prime suspect, "Scarface" Johnny Rivera. These added features are a true bonus. R.G. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
