About this title

Review:

The son of poor Italian immigrants living in Brooklyn, Bephino Menesiero ("Bepy" as he comes to be known) grows up fast. At the age of fifteen he becomes a hit-man. That same year, he is seduced and initiated into the art of lovemaking by a voluptuous redhead twice his age. Embracing values of respect and loyalty as emphasized in his Sicilian heritage and upbringing, Bephino's life is soon filled with bloody experiences and sacrificed lives as he upholds his family's code of honor. His quest for wealth and respect takes him from Brooklyn's Bensonhurst to Beverly Hills' Rodeo Drive, from New Orleans to Mexico City, from Las Vegas to Wall Street. Unhesitant about dispatching victims when required by those to whom allegiance has been sworn, murder becomes merely a dispassionate job performed with ruthless efficiency. Along the way, Bephino's development from youthful killer to a man desperately seeking tranquility, is viewed against the richly colored backdrop of the people and places of the underworld. With crackling dialogue and hard-bitten realistic prose, A Man Of Respect readers with an authenticity of Mario Puzo's "The Godfather" or the non-fiction chiller, "The Valachi Papers". Highly recommended! -- Midwest Book Review
