The second part is that I am pleased to announce that I have murdered Abe Reles. No need to call the police–this is an exceedingly cold case dating back to the ’40s, which is fortunate as I continue to write more for the Casino Chiseler. As a reminder this is book 4 in the Alex Cohen series and won’t see the light of day until somewhere between September to November. Definitely before Thanksgiving. The clue was in the photo a couple of posts ago of the half moon–that was the name of the hotel where Reles was staying when he met his untimely end the night before he was going to rat out his friends in the mob.
