“Murder takes time just didn’t let go. After the first few chapters, I just kept on reading and reading, eager to learn more. This book and the way it is written somehow manages to put you right in the middle of the story from the get go. No drag and endless “getting into it.” ~ Obi, Amazon Review

“The author cleverly weaves layers into the book (while still managing to maintain a fast-paced, action-filled, plot) so that, at the end of the day, there’s something for everybody in the book. It’s part mob story, part detective story/psychological thriller, part love story, part coming of age story all rolled into one.” ~ Ruby Tuesday, Amazon Review

Book Description: There was only one rule in our neighborhood–never break an oath. But oaths are easy to take and damn hard to keep.
Now I’m staring at my best friend, lying on the floor in a pool of blood, my bullet in his gut. Where the hell did it go wrong?

About the Author:
I live in Texas now, but I grew up in Cleland Heights, a mixed ethnic neighborhood in Wilmington, Delaware that sat on the fringes of the Italian, Irish and Polish neighborhoods. The main characters of Murder Takes Time grew up in Cleland Heights and many of the scenes in the book were taken from real-life experiences.
Somehow I survived the transition to adulthood, but when my kids were young I left the Northeast and settled in Texas, where my wife suggested we get a few animals. I should have known better; we now have a full-blown animal sanctuary with rescues from all over. At last count we had 41 animals–12 dogs, a horse, a three-legged cat and 26 pigs.
Oh, and one crazy–and very large–wild boar, who takes walks with me every day and happens to also be my best buddy.
Since this is a bio some of you might wonder what I do. By day I am a headhunter, scouring the country for top talent to fill jobs in the biotech and medical device industry. In the evening I help my wife tend the animals, and at night–late at night–I turn into a writer.

“Murder Takes Time is such a book. It makes a great fast read that pulls you along and makes it hard to put down, but then you find yourself thinking about parts that come back again and again during other activities of the day. In summer I have time to indulge myself in that reflection–if a book has sufficient depth. And, this book does.” ~ Elizabeth V, Amazon review
