John Michele's first novel reads like a classic film noir, crackling dialogue wrapped around a Sicilian immigrant family's story. "Club Morocco" would make a great film. I hope there are future stories from Mr. Michele following this family's immigrant journey.
Loved reading about the unconditional bonds of family during a time in history that created “the greatest generation.”
Really enjoyed this book! Its a unique perspective and a nice quick read! Hoping John Michele authors more!!
I thoroughly enjoyed this entertaining story. So much so, I hated for the story to end, and am hopeful that the author John Michele, will be writing a sequel. Great quick read!
Loved this sequel to "Club Morocco". "Promises" finds "John Boy" (Verra) now an adult tangled up in the political machinations and crime in Boston. Though fictional, it is a Boston that echos its past and comes alive with characters such as "Chubby Presto." A great read and I look forward to what Mr. Michele creates next for this colorful cast of characters.
Old-school Boston neighborhoods, meet crime families, meet politics, meets secrets and Promises.
"The lust for power in political minds is the strongest passion in life and it impels ambitious men to do deeds of infamy"
Excerpt from Club Morocco
"I was riding in a troop train and noticed this officer, a captain, as I remember, poking his gun out the window and shooting at young Sicilian farm workers, young like you and your brother. All I could think about was all of my nephews and nieces back in America about the same ages. It was bullshit and wanted to turn the gun on him. Instead, when the train stopped at night, near a small farm, I asked if could speak privately with him. He was from out West, Oklahoma, I think. Spoke with a western twang. I told him just how I felt. He took a swing at me, yelling that he was a captain and I was a lowly private and that I should shut up about what he does or does not do.”
