Rating: 5 Stars

Nicky Fusco and their friends thought they would live by a code of friendship and honor forever.  Life interfered and now after going down separate paths, that oath was broken by choices and secrets.  Decisions made long ago brutally test their bonds of friendship as a dark chain of events unfolds.

Wow..wow …WOW! This book is a coming of age story.  It’s a mob story, a thriller, love story and a drama.  It’s gritty and it’s real.  Murder Takes Time will make you feel so many emotions at once.  It’s an absolute page turner that will keep you reading till you reach the end.  An explosive first novel from Giacomo Giammatteo and he will definitely be on my to watch list.  I don’t even want to talk about it out of fear I’ll give something away.  Just know that you’re in for one hell of a ride.  I do have to warn you though; there are about 5 chapters of graphic violence, 2 chapters of sexual scenes and some strong language.  It didn’t bother me though and I can’t WAIT for book two.

Thank you to Partners in Crime Tours and the author for the review copy.  It in no way influenced my review.
