Award-winning author Ray Celestin''s The Mobster''s Lament is both a gripping crime novel and a vivid, panoramic portrait of 1940s New York as the mob rises to the height of its powers. From the acclaimed author of The Axeman''s Jazz and Dead Man''s Blues, Ray Celestin''s gripping third book follows a gangster''s last chance to escape the clutches of New York''s mafia families, but as a blizzard descends on NYC, a ruthless serial killer is tracking his every move. New York, 1947. Mob fixer Gabriel Leveson''s plans to flee the city are put on hold when he is tasked with tracking down stolen mob money by ''the boss of all bosses,'' Frank Costello. But while he''s busy looking, he doesn''t notice who''s watching him.

With all the evidence pointing towards him, their only chance of exoneration is to find the killer themselves.
