Praise

PRAISE FOR BUSINESS OR BLOOD:

“The Rizzuto family story . . . seems like the perfect plot for another The Godfather film.” —Justine Lewkowicz, NewsTalk1010.com
 
Edwards and Nicaso do a fine job of connecting the dots of criminal enterprises spanning several decades in numerous countries and including various ethno-cultural groups. . . . The authors have done exhaustive research to provide readers with the necessary background regarding organized crime in Quebec, eastern Ontario, Italy and the U.S. Their research includes information that could only be gleaned from those close to the action. . . . In Business or Blood, fans of the true-crime genre have a comprehensive telling of a recent, bloody chapter of Canadian organized-crime history. It explores the reasons mass bloodlettings take place and the repercussions for organized crime and society.” —Winnipeg Free Press

“You may be astonished at how much money, power and influence the real-life Rizzuto family of Montreal amassed and how it all came so violently tumbling down.” —CBC (copy for an episode of The Current)

“Could possibly be one of the best reads of the 2015 mafia books . . . offers a seldom seen look into the Montreal mafia and the Rizzuto crime family.” —About The Mafia 


PRAISE FOR PETER EDWARDS:

“Peter Edwards knows how real bad guys eat, sleep and breathe, and on the page brings them to life—even the dead ones—better than any other true crime writer.” —Linwood Barclay, international bestselling author
 
“Peter Edwards is one of the best crime writers in Canada.” —Michel Auger, author of The Biker Who Shot Me: Reflections of a Crime Reporter
