Trust No One, Promise Nothing is so much more than a tightly written Mafia-tinged mystery. It's also an intergenerational story of family and secrets, buoyed by sharp writing and a unique approach to telling the story of a man reckoning with his past and present. Incorporating real unsolved underworld murders adds to the atmosphere, while the memorable characters propel the narrative. An enjoyable read.
