Book Description

A warring crime family hires an assassin to take out the crime boss of another family. You follow the assassin as he closes in on his mark while at the same time you start to see the human side of his character and you wonder what made him this way. Witness the events that steal the innocence of a child, a child who befriends the assassin. Finally, be there when both meet once again twenty years later on opposite sides of the law. Readers have stated that they simply couldn't put the book down. In the Heart of an Assassin Tony Bertot left the readers wanting more as the characters came to life with the turn of each page. Then he captivated us further with a prequel to his first book; The Birth of an Assassin, is enticing, hooking the reader right from the get-go. It only takes one moment to transform an individual, but Theo Gresco, has been front and center in two such occasions resulting in lost innocence. They say that for everything that happens there is a reason. That cannot be more true than when Theo undergoes his transformation from an innocent child to a deadly and calculating assassin. The novel revolves around the rise of the Giordano and Costellino crime families. The Birth of an Assassin is set against the backdrop of two major U.S. cities%u2014Chicago and New York%u2014in the early 1940s, and spans nearly two decades, from 1942 to 1964. Finally, the climax; The Legacy of the Assassin. The twists and turns that make up the third book keeps you on the edge of your seat. You find yourself rooting for the assassin saying to yourself "They should never have gotten him mad." Readers biggest complaint; "They just couldn't put it down". In the Birth of an Assassin, the prequel to this book, you witness the rise of the two crime families and the events that made Theo an Assassin. In the Legacy of the Assassin it all comes to a climax as a contract is taken out on the Assassin as he now turns his attention to those that are now hunting him.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Tony Bertot

I have always enjoyed telling stories to my friends while growing up. I remember sitting behind PS125 in New York City on summer days and telling stories to Robert and Nelson, that I would make up at the spur of the moment. Later on in life as a parent I kept my kids and their friends entertained with my stories. I always put them as characters in my stories which added to the excitement. The stories could be funny or scary; depending on what they wanted to hear. It could be about monsters, wolves, dragons..you name it I would make a story about whatever they wanted to hear. It wasn't until I retired in 2008, as I was leaving the office for the last time, a good friend suggested I write a book. It stuck and I wrote my first book; The Heart of an Assassin in April of 2009. In 2010 I released my 2nd book; The Birth of an Assassin and in 2011 I released the final book; The Legacy of the Assassin. In 2012 I ventured into the macabre with; Hell Train. In 2010 I moved to Surprise Arizona, from Cheektowaga New York, and am looking to settling here and continue writing and telling my stories as long as I can. I am currently working on two books; Among Us and Tragedy. My email address is TBertot432@gmail.com Best regards and thank you for reading my books.
