Means, Motive and Opportunity: A Novel of Conspiracy, Controversy and Corruption based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This is easily the most poorly written and edited book in the genre I have ever read. I, too, am from Springfield, MA, the city in which the characters lived and the city where the author lived. I lived in the "South End" of the city where the gangsters, mobsters, Mafia, whatever you want to call them, operated from. I had a few relatives and several friends who were involved in the "rackets." I went to school with two of the author's brothers and "hung out" at the corner of Wendell Place and Main St. with a few others. I know the South End. The characters in this book are thinly disguised and poorly described. The editing is at the junior high school level, to put it as gently as possible. When I mentioned the book to one of the author's cousins, the very first thing he said was "my cousin wrote a book? Who did the spelling for him?" The second thing he said was "I wonder how long before he gets hit/" Don't waste the money to buy it. There are copies, or there were copies, in the Springfield Library, on State Street. No doubt there's no waiting list.
