Book Reviews
Button Man
By Andrew Gross
Reviewed by Cheryl Kravetz
New York comes alive in Button Man, Andrew Gross's new novel allowing the reader to experience the look, feel and the atmosphere of the city in the 1920s and 1930s. Reading Button Man I felt like I was there, in the early 1900s, in New York.
     Readers will experience the beginning of organized crime, the garment district, life on the streets, hardships faced by the Jews in New York City as seen through the eyes of the Rabishevsky family. The story and characters are based on Andrew Gross's own family and their experiences growing up in New York City.
     Morris, Sol, and Harry Rabishevsky grew up poor, living in a tiny flat on the Lower East Side, until their father died and they were forced to learn to fend for themselves and support their family. Morris dropped out of school when he was 12, going to work for a garment cutter in a clothing factory so he could learn the trade; Sol went to accounting school; and Harry joined a gang of street hoods when he was a teenager. Morris learned everything he could at the factory and at age 21 he went out on his own, taking Sol with him. Harry was swayed by the power and money and looked up to Louis Buchalter, the most ruthless mobster in New York. Then Buchalter targeted the unions that staff the garment makers' factories, eventually pitting brother against brother.
     There are special appearances by real-life characters such as mobsters Louis Lepke and Dutch Schultz and special prosecutor Thomas Dewey.
     I have read and liked all of Andrew Gross's crime fiction books and have always felt he stood out in that field, but he has come into his own as a rising star in the art of historical fiction. The One Man, Saboteur, and now Button Man are some of the best historical fiction in print.

Kingdom of the Blind
By Louise Penny
Reviewed by Stephanie Saxon Levine
In this fourteenth book in this marvelous series, Armand Gamache  is invited to an abandoned farmhouse. There, the former head of the Surete du Quebec learns that a complete stranger has named him as one of three executors to her will. The two other executors, Myrna Landers from Three Pines, and a young aspiring builder, are equally unfamiliar with the woman.The contents of the will lead the three to doubt the woman's sanity. A body found days later at the farmhouse adds considerable menace into the mix.
     Meanwhile, Gamache is dealing with fallout from the events that led to his suspension. The investigation has continued for over six months. Gamache is desperate to retrieve the drug shipment he let slip through his fingers to bring down the cartels. He races to find the narcotic, which has disappeared into inner-city Montreal.
     Kingdom of the Blind is arguably one of the best, if not the best, in this sterling series. Louise Penny's considerable gifts are on display in this book. The series characters are fully developed, complete with their quirks and their marvelous wit. They are thoughtful people, well-versed in the arts, lovers of good food, sparkling conversation, a mystery to solve, and their friendships with each other. The author endows them with her own sense of humor, a delightful bonus. The mystery she sets for them is compelling and puzzling, with plenty of red herrings and surprises for characters and readers alike. And the setting... ahh, the setting. Here in South Florida's warmth, I shivered at the deep snows and icy winds of a Quebec winter. I breathed the chill air in a way I haven't in the past twenty years since moving from New York. I vicariously enjoyed days indoors, sheltering from the storm, gathered around the long pine table with Gamache's guests. All this is testimony to Louise Penny's wonderful talent. She makes a whole world out of words.
     In her acknowledgements, the author explains why she almost didn't write the book. I am so grateful she did. Like her legions of devoted readers, I eagerly anticipate my "visits" to Three Pines and hope for many more books in this delightful series. Start anywhere in the series, but, by all means, read Kingdom of the Blind. Minotaur 1st printing: 28.99

The Best Bad Things
By Katrina Carrasco
Reviewed by Sue Wilder
Ex-Pinkerton detective Alma Rosales is tasked to track down a missing shipment of opium. She works for Delphine Beaumond who runs a smuggling operation in Port Townsend in the Washington Territory.
     Despite the wild west setting of the West Coast in the 1880's, Alma stands out. She changes her identity to suit the circumstances, cross dressing between the female Alma and the male Jack Camp. She uses chalk powder to change her skin tone and is agile enough to infiltrate the local mob organization.
     Using her Pinkerton training, Alma distracts law enforcement by sending them down blind alleys. She is determined to solve the case so that she may win the ultimate prize: rekindling her stalled romance with Delphine.
     Ms. Carrasco delivers a well written historical crime story that is difficult to put down. The Best Bad Things is a wonderfully plotted adventure story that spans a month in 1887.   Alma Rosales is a unique and fascinating character as are the other characters that populate the book. The story is set in an interesting time and place.
     It is always a treat to find a new author. This is a highly entertaining debut. Hopefully we will see more from Ms. Carrasco.READ IT!
