John Florio - Blind Moon Alley

Jersey Leo returns to the mean streets of Prohibition era Philadelphia in Florio's excellent follow up to Sugar Pop Moon.  After granting a favor to a friend on death row, Leo finds himself the target of a group of crooked cops that will stop at nothing to put him in ground. "Florio has an unerring feel for the era and people, and we believe in these characters. Readers will cheer for Leo, a tough guy with a heart of hurt."--Publishers Weekly (starred review).
