"Bittersweet Brooklyn" By Thelma Adams

Book Cover for Bittersweet Brooklyn

In turn-of-the century New York, a mobster rises and his favorite sister struggles between loyalty and life itself. How far will she go when he commits murder?

Flipping the familiar script of “The Sopranos,” “Boardwalk Empire,” and “The Godfather,” “Bittersweet Brooklyn” explores the shattering impact of mob violence on the women expected to mop up the mess.

Winding its way over decades, it is a family saga that plunges readers into a dangerous past - revealed through the perspective of a forgotten yet vibrant woman.

Thelma Adams is the author of the bestselling historical novel “The Last Woman Standing” and “Playdate.” She coproduced the Emmy-winning “Feud: Bette and Joan.” Additionally, she is a prominent film critic – having been the in-house film critic for Us Weekly and the New York Post.

Joe talks to people on the radio for a living. In addition to countless impressive human "gets" - he has talked to a lot of Muppets. Joe grew up in Philadelphia, has been on the area airwaves for more than 25 years and currently lives in Washington County, NY with his wife, Kelly, and their dog, Brady. And yes, he reads every single book.
