Straddling opposite sides of the law, three best friends try to keep their cool—and stay alive

Jimmy Burns has always been the slickest guy around. On the streets of Queens, he struts like a king—until he crosses 101st Street. That’s Paradiso territory, and Jimmy wouldn’t go near it if it weren’t for his best friend, JoJo, the half-crazed son of mob kingpin Salvatore Paradiso. Along with their buddy Dante O’Donnell, Jimmy and JoJo are inseparable, but the world will conspire to test the threesome’s unbreakable bond.

As the years go by, Dante and Jimmy find themselves on track to become cops, while JoJo is groomed to inherit the family business. But when his father’s prohibition of selling drugs threatens to drive the family into bankruptcy, JoJo goes behind his back to arrange a deal. Caught between two worlds, Jimmy tries to stay true. But in the back alleys of Queens, the only unforgiveable sin is betraying a friend.


“In the writings of the world of cops and the mob, there is no more authentic voice than Bob Leuci’s.” —Nicholas Pileggi, author of Wiseguy, Goodfellas, and Casino

“As good as they come. Nervy, smooth and dead-on convincing.” —Randall Short, The New York Times, on Captain Butterfly
