Peter Blauner
Casino Moon


Growing up in the tender bosom of the Atlantic City mob has left its mark on Anthony Russo. All he wants is to be legit—but the Mafia is in his blood. Trapped in the middle of twin revenge killings—and involved in an affair with a beautiful mud wrestler—Anthony finally sees an opportunity to escape into the professional boxing game. But sometimes the lawful world can be as corrupt and dangerous as the unlawful one. And someone else's murder may be the only way to prevent your own.
