Pg. 69: Dave Zeltserman's "Pariah"

The current feature at the Page 69 Test: Pariah by Dave Zeltserman.

About the book, from the publisher:
Once part of the holy triumvirate ruling the South Boston Irish mob, Kyle Nevin is set up with the Feds by head mobster, Red Mahoney, which leads him to a court case and a stretch in the slammer. Now out of prison, Kyle wants revenge on his old boss and mentor, and just as importantly, to reclaim his former glory.

A kidnapping gone horribly wrong leads to a major book deal for Kyle and a newfound celebrity status – but also brings about bigger problems for both himself and anyone unlucky enough to cross his path.

is a heady mix of crime novel, history, social commentary and a satirical look at the publishing industry.
