Book Description

Review Victoria Bolton's Rude Boy USA will take readers deep into the psychology of kingpins and the mechanics of the game of power. Bolton writes with unwavering confidence and grace, unveiling a plot that is laced with unusual turns and sudden surprises, a pace that quickens with the reader's heartbeat. The characters are as real as they are compelling, sometimes funny and at times very, very nasty. The language is blunt, so blunt the reader can squirm at times at what they hear. The dialogue comes off the pages naturally and draws readers in as the plot progresses to a rocket-like climax. This is a book I will gladly recommend to fans of thrillers and crime fiction. An enjoyable read indeed. - Romuald Dzemo for Readers' Favorite???'I liked Ms. Bolton's concept of featuring a POC (people of color) mobster-style group. The diversity brings in a different view of the character's personalities, attire, and the environment. I felt the plot really took off and went into full swing about midway through the book. I found myself cringing and cheering all at the same time. It's a thick story that will grab fans of crime fiction who are ready or a new twist on this genre.' - Sage Adderley'This is a very different kind of crime story and I have to say I am a fan. This book brings you right in from the get go with charismatic characters and a story line that is interesting from the start. Bernie is a man with big ideas, and even if they aren't the most noble they are something to admire once in a while perhaps. The Ambrosino family is a formidable bunch and honestly I found myself rooting more than once for Bernie, Jerome, and company. Well fleshed out characters and a plot that will keep you interested are just two of the things you will find in this story. So if you want a book that has been well written with a flowing story line and fun, witty commentary, this is the one for you. I enjoyed every minute and I think you will too!' - Kathryn Bennett for Readers' Favorite'The details are so thrilling, and the storyline is so realistic that you can actually feel a connection with the characters...even if you didn't live through the era of the Godfathers.'? Sierra Woodcock for The Writer's Blog????????? 'Bolton writes about life in New York City in the early 1970s in so much detail that you feel as if you were there with the characters.? She introduces us to another facet of life in the mafia as a minority without making their existence in the culture seem tragic. Each chapter is tense with sudden twists and turns, but the story never falls flat or repetitive; it stays fascinating with new surprises throughout.' - Huffington Post'Rude Boy USA is a provocative and direct hit.' - ?Carol Davala,?Hollywood Book Review 'Bolton aptly captures the tempestuous spirit of the time--a volatile brew of political radicalism, crime, racial tension, and sexual libertinism--and her painstaking historical research is evident onvirtually every page.' - Kirkus Reviews 'Love, betrayal, friendships, and gang connections all simmerbeneath the atmosphere of the 1960s in?New York City, making for ariveting, highly recommended read especially recommended for fans of historicalnovels or mob stories.' - D.Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review'At times the read is very harsh, violent and scandalous but never uninteresting. You will find yourself either shocked, blushing or crying at the sudden twists and turns that occur throughout.' - Preeti Rawat, Medium?
