Blood of My Blood by Ralph Pezzullo
Smokey Annicelli promised Evan Bravere as his best friend lay dying he’d look after Evan’s son Ricky. It wasn’t a hardship—he was Ricky’s godfather.
But years passed, and life happened, and he lost track of Ricky. Then one morning, he’s called to the scene of a brutal murder. The victim is his godson.
Who murdered the charismatic young rock star, and who had he gone to 247 W. 29th Street to see? As Smokey throws himself headlong into the case, it brings back memories of a terrible night in Bronx River Park he’s spent the last thirty years trying to forget. With vicious thugs on his tail, he has to dig deeper than he ever thought he could to solve a mystery that, in many ways, explains his own life.
