No Man’s Brooklyn

I am happy to announce that my fourth novel, No Man’s Brooklyn, has officially been released. Books can be ordered through Amazon  or other online booksellers.

For those who wish to order a copy directly from me, I will have a limited number of signed copies available for purchase. Contact me for details.

Reviewers are also welcome to contact me, if interested in obtaining a digital copy for review.

From the valentine boneyards of working-class Brooklyn, comes a tale of first love, lost innocence, tragedy, and healing. Daniel Trovato, having left his native Bensonhurst years ago to start a new life in L.A., is recently sober and enjoying cult success through his Sworn Witness series of graphic novels. When he receives word that his childhood love, Anya, has died from an overdose, he is compelled to return to the “old neighborhood.” It is there that he will walk through the ghostly twilight of an unfinished past, and revisit both the romantic lore and shadow life of his youth. The enduring torch he’s carried for Anya, “the girl from nowhere,” who was found in a trash can and adopted by a Russian family; the hazy circumstances of his mother’s suicide when he was fourteen; glacial estrangement from his father; the street-and-concrete beats and rhythms of an urban boyhood.
