Story Merchant E-Book Deal FREE June 24 - June 28 Gambino: The Rise by James Pierre



Fleeing a murder charge in his native homeland of Palermo, Sicily, in Italy, young Carlo Gambino finds refuge in the United States of America. It is the Roaring Twenties, and New York is a melting pot of decadence and excess. As well as unprecedented violence. The
Volstead Act creates a new and booming black market for booze, one which gangsters of all denominations seek to control.

The Rise will hook readers from the first page to the very last, and its violent, colorful cast of characters will continue to enthrall the imagination of readers long after the book has been put down. Strap in for this bumpy and brutal ride through America’s Age of
Prohibition, where gangsters roamed free and lived by their own code of honor—and blood.

All in the pursuit of the American Dream!

Veteran Hollywood multi-hyphenate George Gallo (“Bad Boys,” “The Comeback Trail”) is attached to direct “Gambino,” a high-end biopic about organized crime boss Carlo Gambino that Gallo is co-writing with two-time Oscar winner Nick Vallelonga (“Green Book”). Julius Nasso producing with Ken Atchity (EP).
