Cici Russo or Brooke Hutchenson plays by her own rules. She’s the daughter of a mafia boss, then she’s forced to take on the identity of a murder victim.

The book spans from 1960 to 1990. It took me back in time and brought back memories of those years.

The first part of the book is a raw look at the mafia world. The second is hiding from them. Both made tense and exciting reading.

A unique read with a first-person point of view.

CiCi told her no-hold bar story. Her entire life was a lie. That made her an interesting character. Brazen at times. Sneaky and cautious other times. Even as Brooke, she couldn’t let go of her mafia training. Strong woman.

I gave this story four-star instead of five because of the swear words throughout the book. The book kept my interest and I enjoyed it. I was on the edge of my seat at times.

Rating: Curse words sprinkled throughout the book. Sexual scenes – moderate graphic.
