Overview

From the authors of Beachside PD: The Reluctant Knight and Beachside PD: The Gypsy Hunter comes this thrilling prequel to the series: Beachside PD: Cities of Sand and Stone.

It tells the story of Angelo Tedeschi, described by his closest friend Danny as ". . . a vicious thug certainly, a psychopath probably, and yet caring to those very few he loved."

Angelo Tedeschi was forged by his father's fists, his mother's love, and shaped on the streets of Brooklyn. Tempered by his friendship with Danny Phillips and Jay Gardner, he survived to eventually work for mob boss Eddie "Mambo" Salerno.

When Angelo loses his fiery temper and roughs up a high ranking Mafioso, Salerno has to hustle him out of town to keep him alive. Sent to Beachside, Florida to keep a close eye on degenerate gambler and crooked police captain Jimmy Hagen, he becomes-of all things-a cop.

Watching Hagen isn't Angelo's only job, he's also responsible for looking after Salerno's criminal empire. A job complicated by Iraq war hero and fellow police officer, Michael Frakes, the steroid-fueled Joey Salerno and the vicious Russian crime boss, Viktor Matyushenko.

From the stone city of Brooklyn to the sand city of Beachside, Angelo's story is one of constant betrayal. If you are a reader who prefers realism along with hard-hitting action and savvy dialogue, then you'll enjoy the third novel from this father/son writing team.

------------------

Neil L. Yuzuk was born in Brooklyn, New York. He worked in sales and sales management before returning to college as a freshman at age 40. In 1987, he began working as a New York City Substance Abuse Prevention and Intervention Counselor, working in the high school SPARK Program.

After he retired, his full-time police officer/actor son David said, "Hey Pops, why don't you write a screenplay for me." He wrote a police procedural called, The Devil's Troll. "The experience of learning how to do research and creating characters and their back stories was an incredible learning experience." He then teamed up with David to collaborate on their first screenplay The Reluctant Knight. That screenplay eventually became the first book in the Beachside PD series-Beachside PD: The Reluctant Knight-and it was a Global eBook Awards finalist in the category of Suspense/Thriller.

Since then, he's co-authored the recently published Beachside PD: The Gypsy Hunter and he is currently working on the fourth book in the series, Beachside PD: Undercover (scheduled for December, 2012). A family saga novel called Zaragossa: Fruit Of The Vine is scheduled for December, 2014.
