We might only be in November, but I have just got to the end of February. “How so?” I hear you ask. Well, I am glad you did because I am, of course, referring to February 14, 1929 when a group of Jewish gangsters tried to assassinate Bugs Moran, Al Capone’s enemy who ran the north side of Chicago.
I am pleased to confirm that I have just written a section of the East Side Hustler in which the St Valentine’s Day massacre features and the ‘only’ things left are to add the ending and to go back and lace more of the story with Alex’s wartime experiences.
All in all, I am expecting/hoping that this sequel to the Alex Cohen series will hit the streets in February 2020. Who knows, I might even launch on the day reserved for romantics for this tale of the Jewish mob in 1920s America. Nice.
