About the author:
Edward F. Smith is a former business executive, now an active writer and a reviewer of new fiction. Born and raised in Manhattan he attended the High School of Commerce and Pace College. He is currently at work on a new novel.

I found this book to be a little slow, but a good read none the less.

It starts out with Dan as a young kid. His parents split and he moves around a couple times.

He meets some friends who have some interesting families!!!

The story goes on to explain how Dan grows up, and the challenges he faces as he gets older with girls, money and his family.

Some of the adventures he has are quite funny.

There is one big Hotel caper that I found to be very well written.

The ending is also a big surprise. I did not see it coming!!!

If you like to read about mobsters, crime, and unusual love stories, this book is for you!!

I give it 4 out of 5 stars!!
