Nicky Fusco thought he knew right from wrong, living by an oath of friendship & honor with his three best friends. But life took them down separate paths, and the oath was broken. Secrets were kept. Years later they are reunited and the bonds of their friendship are brutally tested, putting them on a collision course set in motion long ago.

Murder Takes Time is not a typical murder mystery or mob story. It is a thriller, a romance, and a coming-of-age story that rips your heart out. By the time you’re done reading it, you just might find yourself rethinking the definition of friendship & honor—even right and wrong.

Three boys, one girl. Friendship, honor, love—betrayal. It ends with murder.

I finished the book mainly to see who lived and who died. I did not find this an easy book to read.

Best book I've read for quite some time, so well done that I purchased the next book with a new set of characters. So different from my usual police procedurals, this book incorporates many different categories, which was refreshing . Try this and I'm sure you will be hooked on this authors books, as I was.

I liked the author's format of blending past & present. Enjoyed the fact I did not know what was going to happen next!

Above and beyond
April 3rd, 2015
I had a bit of trouble with the story jumping back and forth in time, but overall this book is beyond the usual thriller because if its attention to character development, and the moral dilemmas faced by the main characters. For me the resolution of moral dilemmas by the characters in novels is what intrigues me, and is what the best novels are about.
