Al Marsiglia's books, "Contract Pending" and 'By Hook or BY Crook" have caused a stir in the thriller/crime novel/mystery segment of the book reading public, generating mostly 5-star revues on Amazon. The mafia-flavored bent of his stories have a genuine feel to them and for good reason. Although he was never personally been in the "life" himself, Al grew up in the Bronx New York of the 1940's and 50's, in an era when organized crime was flourishing all around him. The characters in his books are based on actual people and friends he grew up with. He was privy to their humor, their fears, and their tears and it shows in his stories.

Born in the Bronx NY., Al Marsiglia has had several successful careers, including actor, real estate broker, over-the-road driver, restauranteur,... Read More
