    1 thought on “Complicit Witness”

    1. The quality of the writing here just blew me away. The dialogue especially - I could read pages and pages of Petrosini's 70s wise guys shooting the breeze and never once get bored.If you're looking for masses of plot, then you might be disappointed, as there's no real indication of where the story's heading until about 2/3 of the way through, but the wonderful snappy exchanges between the characters are enough to keep you reading. The basic plot involves an ambitious New York DA's repeated attem [...]

    2. This is an interesting story, in the mold of "Good Fellas" and will appeal to anyone attracted to stories of New York wise guys. This is the story of Tommy, a wannabe hood with a gambling problem, who gets in over his head and finds himself caught between the law on one side and the Russian mob on the other.The story is a familiar one to those of us who have grown up knowing street punks like Tommy who want to become big shots. The plot unfolds easily and logically with a nice twist at the end.

    3. Complicit Witness is a true-to-life story about Staten Island ‘wise guys,’ their scams and the consequences when an ambitious D.A. decides to bring them down. Low level Italian mobsters make a bargain with the Devil when they begin dealing with a crafty Russian. The novel is filled with believable characters, realistic dialogue and a peek into how the mob makes money. If you enjoyed the movie Goodfellas, you’ll get a kick out of Complicit Witness.

    4. I received a copy of Complicit Witness through giveaway. As always, I am very grateful. Complicit Witness is a well written mystery with just enough suspense to keep me wanting more. It was fast paced; every few pages contained so much excitement. I believe Petrosini has portrayed life on Staten Island in a very believable manner. I will be looking out for future work from Daniel Petrosini. And you should too!

    5. Exciting suspenseful narrative, could not put down (read in 2 days!), surprising ending. Loved how the Mob kept confusing the DA by dirty tactics. I was rooting for Tommy and prayed for a happy outcome.

    6. BORINGThis book was just all over the place, but I finished reading it in its entirety hoping it would get better but sadly it didn't.
