My Review
Budgsy Seagal's murder, mobsters, hollywood, and crime, in fine fiction.

Jonathan Craine, the former Hollywood movie 'fixer' returns in the follow-up to The Pictures to face off against FBI agents, mobsters, and greedy casino owners.

Set some 8 years after the events of the preceding novel, Craine has set up shop on a rural property in California with his son. The peace and tranquility is soon spoiled when a gun toting mobster flies in and crashes Craine's life.

Force to do the mob's bidding, Craine must find Bugsy Siegel's killer before his own son joins the mobster in death. 

The Syndicate is fast-paced, violent, and full of action. A worthy successor to The Pictures.

There's a lot of facts intertwined in this clever fiction which readers familiar with the era will appreciate. 

My rating: 5/5. I can't wait to see where author Guy Bolton takes Craine and co. next.
