Are you from or lived in Philly?
If so you are going to really like my Mercy Row series of novels. There are three books: Mercy Row, Mercy Row Clann and Mercy Row Retribution. It’s the author’s homage to Philly told in an exciting action packed Philly way.
The story takes place in North Philadelphia and starts in the 1920-30s (Book One Mercy Row). It’s the story of an Irish crime family who are both vicious and vengeful, as well as being highly motivated to help the community. While building the familiar Philly red brick row homes the family creates and protects its numinous criminal enterprises.
Book 2 Mercy Row Clann continues the story during World War 2 when the family must fight the Germans and Japanese and also other mobsters in order to preserve their way of life. The children of the Boss find themselves fighting not only in the streets of Philadelphia but also in Africa, Europe and the South Pacific.
Book 3 Mercy Row Retribution starts in 1968 when the grandson of the founder of the crime family fights in Vietnam and at the same time finds ways to smuggle marijuana to enhance the family’s criminal ways. This sets up a dispute with the French mafia which has the family fighting in the streets of Paris. The book has a bonus section of short true stories from when the author was growing up in North Philly.
The dichotomy of good and evil makes for an exciting yet heartwarming read. The author grew up in the neighborhood he writes about and you will find many familiar descriptions of places, things and people.
