Kings of Brighton Beach Episode #1: Extended Sample by D. B. Shuster

At fourteen Vlad escaped his violent father and the criminal soup of Brighton Beach. Now, twenty years later, he will reclaim his father’s place in the Russian mafia if he can survive. Vlad plans to ingratiate himself with his father’s former partner, Artur, learn the “business,” and commit a hostile takeover. But Artur is no rough gangster like Vlad’s father. A Russian operative and master strategist, he intends to use Vlad as a pawn in his own intricate plan. Secretly pitted against one another, the two men share a common weakness—their feelings for Artur’s lovely daughter, Inna.

Everything changes the night Inna is discovered in her brother’s own nightclub, raped and drugged, with a gun in her hand and a dead mobster sprawled on top of her. The dead man’s comrades are intent on retribution, blood for blood, but Vlad and Artur both know Inna’s innocent of murder. They will need to work together if they hope to keep her safe and solve the mystery of who has set her up—all while keeping secrets from Inna and each other that threaten to destroy them all.

Did not make a lot of sense. Lots of words with no substance.

I don’t normally read thrillers but I was hooked from the very first chapter! Brighton Beach is an intricate weaving of characters, all of whom may or may not be involved with the Russian mob. Crimes are covered up, lives are put at risk, and from one chapter to the next, you’re never sure just who you can trust. I’ll definitely be reading more of Brighton Beach. Highly recommend!
