    1. PROHIBITION by Terrence McCauleyAt one time, it was assumed pulp fiction died in the fifties, but the genre is making a solid comeback these days. One of the publishers responsible for its rebirth is Airship 27. What is noteworthy is that original pulp fiction novels were famous both for their stories and for their cover art. In fact, individual artists would develop a reputation by being able to convey what the story was about with just a glance at the cover. Airship 27 has recognized this by g [...]

    2. This is a nice piece of juicy beef for when you're in the mood for a red-meat gangster yarn. Terrence McCauley keeps things cooking with his plot, and though I was able to guess one of the traitors, that was just one small facet of a storyline that held lots of surprises and some exciting set pieces. It's retro in several cool ways, including the historical flavor (which never gets intrusive) and the drawings (I was glad to see that they weren't left out of the Kindle edition). Yet it doesn't fe [...]

    3. Wow. I found this book refreshing. This insightful author really knows how to tell a story. You really feel like you are part of the story and want know more about the character. In a time when you feel like everybody is out for themselves, this books give you hope there is somebody out there who has honor left. The story is set in NYC in the 30s, Quinn is a boxer who would not take a dive in a prize fight. This could cost him his life but a crime boss sees the value in this action and asks him [...]

    4. In Archie Doyle's 1930's New York, prohibition is just a word when Archie ran the town. The money from his less than legal enterprises were flowing as plentifully as the illegal hooch he served up to thirsty customers in his many gambling halls and speak easies. No one challenged that authority. Especially not the slimy mayor in Archie's pocket. But that's changing. Much more dangerous than the crooked cops on Doyle's payroll paid to look the other way, there's a new dangerous competition in tow [...]

    5. “Quinn heard Ceretti’s rapid footsteps echo in the rain-soaked streets. Fatigue and panic would take hold. Soon every step would sound like a whisper: Dead man. Dead man. Ceretti twitched around every few seconds to see if anyone was following him. He saw no one.”Terry Quinn, hit man for the Doyle mob is following him.So begins, Prohibition, the gritty new novel by Terrence McCauley that is set in New York City in 1930. Written in a clean Dashiell Hammett style it evokes just how wide open [...]

    6. McCauley may have the best idea on how to sustain a series: make the setting the consistent thing and rotate the characters. Prohibition follows Terry Quinn in his role of chief enforcer for Archie Doyle in Prohibition-era New York; NYPD detective Charlie Doherty is a subordinate character. Slow Burn is Doherty’s book, taking place after Franklin Roosevelt has taken over as governor and pledged to clean up the Tammany machine in the city. McCauley has a gift for capturing not just the period i [...]

    7. Having a book club meeting with the author is always a great thing especially when it's a book you like! Totally recommend this. It is fast paced and very exciting. I went and got Slow Burn and Fight Card: Against the Ropes right after!

    8. Prohibition had all of the elements of a classic gangster movie, but with more realistic dialogue. I loved it and I'm looking forward to reading the next one.
