9781595983909: Weepers (A Novel by Nick Chiarkas)

*** 2015 Finalist -- MIPA Book Awards for Suspense/Thriller *** If it moves away from you, it's food; if it moves toward you, you're food. The 1957 murder of an undercover cop in a New York City housing project has unexpected ties to the unsolved disappearance of a young father walking home in those same projects with his son, Angelo, on Christmas Eve six years before. The only witness to the cop killing is Angelo, now 13, while on his way to seek his own revenge in the early morning hours. The killers know he saw them. A series of gripping events forge a union between a priest, a Mafia boss, a police detective, and Angelo, a gang member. In the end, Weepers shows us that the courage of the underdog despite fear and moral ambiguity will conquer intimidation.

About the Author:

Nick Chiarkas grew up in the Al Smith housing projects in the Two Bridges neighborhood on Manhattan's Lower East Side, where Weepers takes place. When he was in the fourth grade his mother was told by the principal of PS-1 that, "Nick was unlikely to ever complete high school, so you must steer him toward a simple and secure vocation." Instead, Nick became a writer, with a few stops along the way: a New York City Police Officer; the Deputy Chief Counsel for the President's Commission on Organized Crime; and the Director of the Wisconsin State Public Defender Agency. On the way he picked up a Doctorate from Columbia University; a Law Degree from Temple University; and was a Pickett Fellow at Harvard. How many mothers are told their child is hopeless? How many kids with potential simply surrender to desperation? That's why Nick wrote Weepers--for them.

Nick's other publications are law books; books dealing with Criminal Organizations and Enterprises; and articles, two of which have been translated and published in Japan. Weepers is Nick's first novel. Forthcoming novels include: Nunzio's Way, Black Tiger Tea, and Blue Bounty.

Review:

"Nick Chiarkas takes us inside the Al Smith projects, and he makes you feel the fears and the love of a New York City family facing the dangers of the streets...while they cling to each other in the purest form of family. "Weepers" is a page turning murder mystery and a fascinating look at New York in the 1950's...It makes you want to crawl into the book and not come out." -Mitch Henck of the All New Mitch Henck Show "Uncommon Sense," 92.1 FM, mitchhenck.com
