DiPlacido pens yet another story of a family in the mob who wants out. Trouble starts when Eva Russo’s father, the main man, takes a fall and all roads leads back to Dave “The Sheik” DeSantis, her father’s No. 1 man. With lots of tough Vegas talk, the required stupid boyfriend, serious mob action, not to mention some other kinds of action, this story is not for the faint of heart.
Eva Russo wants her family out of the mob. But before she can make that happen her father is murdered and it looks like her father’s partner, Dave DeSantis, is the lead suspect. With guns and pre-nups flying, no one can be sure how this one will turn out. (MUNDANIA, Feb., 235 pp., $12.95)
