More Description


Angelo DiNoto is the most powerful crime lord in New Jersey, his empire bolstered by pure heroin imported from an old Turkish farmer. But when a five million dollar shipment goes missing during the Newark riots of 1967, DiNoto isn't the only one willing to turn over every rock--and bust some heads, arms, legs-- to locate it. Shady developer Richard Mundi sees the heroin as the key to replenishing his fading business with new capital. His daughter Gloria, literally in bed with a band of wannabe revolutionaries, believes the lucrative stash might be her ticket out of her father's domain. A longtime postal clerk disfigured by cancer thinks finding the drugs is the perfect cap to a failed life.

With an Elmore Leonard-esque cast of characters rampaging across Newark and Manhattan, The Old Turk's Load is a twisty historical crime novel whose disparate thread leads directly to an unforgettable showdown over the "old Turk's load."
