?Headlines about "Strange and Startling Deaths In Brooklyn," threw a chill through the riverfront communities close to the discoveries of body parts that were discovered in several places around the community. Fear began to envelope the entire Borough of Brooklyn. And police investigators were without clues as to the events that seem to heading to an even more deadly conclusion. Mangled body parts turned up in several areas of Brooklyn and rumors about unreported findings began to spread way beyond the Borough's borders. Even bustling Manhattan, no stranger to murders, was placed on high alert. Ten murders in as many weeks, all committed with a hatchet-like tool, and officials had no clues or suspects for the killings. More badly decomposed body parts continued to be found, some of which were discovered in a long abandoned tunnel not far from Bensonhurst creating a panic among residents of that community. Murders were not common in this neighborhood, even though the residents had a more than a casual familiarity with infamous mob figures that lived in and/or visited this area for years. However, no vicious crimes had been reported in this subtly protected area, until now. Can it be these discoveries were related to mob activities that went sour unexpectedly, or was it the beginning of a gang war of epic proportions??

Joe Chyla is a very engaging storyteller. I picked up the book and was unable to put it down until I finished it. I have not been so interested in following a story to its conclusion since I read Hunt for Red October many years ago.
