The Birth Of An Assassin Book Review

In this prequel to The Heart of an Assassin, the reader will enter
the world of Theo Gresco on a journey that led him into a life of crime and betrayal. His youth
was stolen, his trust eroded and his destiny predicted a path of vengeance.

The Birth of an Assassin follows the life of a young man whose personal tragedies transform
him from a carefree innocent boy into a cold hearted and deadly assassin. Also during this era,
the rise of the Giordano and Costellino crime families is also followed.

The Heart of an Assassin tells the story of a man hired to take out the head of an organization
and how a single solitary act propelled a crime family into becoming one of the most influential
and innovative syndicates to exist. The Birth of an Assassin brings the reader to the beginning.
It delves into the life and mind of a person who can kill without regard or feeling for his intended
victims or for the people that hire him.

Once again, the author captures the intensity in the life of an assassin challenging the reader's
fleeting thought to put down this book.

About the author:
Tony Bertot, born in New York City, recently moved to Surprise, Arizona from Cheektowaga,
New York. The Assassin trilogy is just the beginning as he intends to publish other stories he has
already written. "The Heart of the Assassin and now The Birth of an Assassin, are my first
published works. My third and last of the Assassin books is called The Legacy of the Assassin
and should be released by early next year."

This is one of the sadest books I have read in a long time.

Tony Bertot takes you back to the 40's and the times when Mafias ran rampant through the streets of New York.

Theo Gresco is a happy go lucky child who loves to run around with his camera taking pictures of everything and everyone.

When his Father is murdered for not accepting Mafia "protection," Theo's world is turned upside down.

You get to learn how Theo, and the community deal with the Mafia and how they try to save each others lives.

Make sure you have tissues with you when you read this book. The things that happen to these poor people are horrible and soooo sad!!

The only thing that I found hard about this book is trying to keep track of all the crime families and who goes where.

There are alot of names to try to keep up with.

Over all I really liked the book, and am waiting to read the next book in this trilogy called The Legacy Of The Assassin.
