In turn-of-the century New York, a mobster rises – and his favourite sister struggles between loyalty and life itself. How far will she go when he commits murder?

After midnight, Thelma Lorber enters her brother Abie’s hangout under the Williamsburg Bridge, finding Jewish mobster Louis ‘Pretty’ Amberg in a puddle of blood on the kitchen floor. She could flee. Instead, in the dark hours of that October 1935 night before the dawn of Murder Inc., she remains beside the fierce, funny brother who has nurtured and protected her since childhood. There are many kinds of love a woman can feel for a man, but few compare to that of the baby sister for her older brother. For Thelma, a wild widow tethered to a young son, Abie is the centre of her world. But that love is about to undo everything she holds dear ... Flipping the familiar script of The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire and The Godfather, Bittersweet Brooklyn explores the shattering impact of mob violence on the women expected to mop up the mess. Winding its way over decades, this haunting family saga plunges readers into a dangerous past – revealed through the perspective of a forgotten yet vibrant woman.

'A fresh, fierce retelling of the crime family saga from the female point of view.'
Paula Froelich, NYT bestselling author

'A searing, layered portrait of a Brooklyn family divided against itself, this novel brims with heartbreak, history, empathy and grace.'
Greer Macallister
