One a Sicilian Hell's Kitchen gang leader, the other a sickly but brilliant Orthodox Jewish boy who lives next door, Vinny Vesta and Sidney Butcher meet on a fire escape during the blistering New York City summer of 1950. Their friendship develops over the course of a summer that will change Vinny's fortunes forever, at a cost he could never have imagined. Based on a true story, Mafia Summer brilliantly captures a pivotal moment in Mafia history and in the lives of the teenagers caught up by the Mob. «Influenced more by Billy Bathgate than by The Godfather…Sweet, affectionate, and bloody: a glance backward to a well-spent youth.»-Kirkus Reviews «E. Duke Vincent hits the target dead center with this first novel set on the bloody streets of Hell's Kitchen. A mini-epic, complete with a full-scale crime war, Mafia Summer remains a detailed tale of friendship and of the best kind of loyalty. A masterful performance.»-Lorenzo Carcaterra, author of Sleepers and Paradise City «One of the best books on the mafia I have ever read. Right up there with The Godfather.»-New York Times bestselling author Jack Higgins
