Cover reveal - Midtown Huckster - Leopold Borstinski

I can't tell you how excited I am to be taking part in the cover reveal for Midtown Huckster by Leopold Borstinski. If you're a regular visitor to my blog you'll know that I'm loving this particular series of books by Leopold and if you're looking to lose yourself in some great books while we're all under lockdown, then I'd highly recommend you check these out. You can read my reviews of the first two books The Bowery Slugger and East Side Hustler for more information and links.

Midtown Huckster is the third book in the series and here's the blurb for you all:

Can you keep your gelt and freedom when the cops have enough evidence to take you down? 

1930s Jewish gangster, Alex Cohen runs Murder Inc for Lucky Luciano. After the death of Prohibition he must find a new way to make money, just as the cops are baying at his heels. When Luciano goes down for racketeering, Alex loses his protection and is arrested for tax evasion-he must decide between saving his skin and ratting out his friends.

If he chooses prison time then his gang will fall apart and he will end up with nothing. If he squeals then he will have to flee the city he loves and the family he once adored. What would you do in a world where nobody can be trusted and you have everything to lose?

The third book in the Alex Cohen series is an historical noir novel, which plunges you deep into the early days of narcotics trafficking and the Jewish New York mob. Leopold Borstinski's piercing crime fiction delivers a fix to every reader like heroin from a needle.

I think it sounds fabulous and I hope you agree. Before I show you the cover I'm sure you're curious to find out more about the author of these brilliant books.

There is nothing he likes better so he does as much nothing as he possibly can. He has travelled extensively in Europe and the US and has visited Asia on several occasions. Leopold holds a Philosophy degree and tries not to drop it too often.

He lives near London and is married with one wife, one child and no pets.

Ok, so I think I've made you wait long enough now, let's get down to what you're all here for . .  the cover reveal!

I think that it's an intriguing cover and one that I'm sure will capture the mood of the book. There's also a little teaser video to accompany it.
