9781933586298: Johnny Porno

It s the summer of 1973. Disco is King and the New York mob is at the peak of its power. John Albano, an out-of-work construction worker with child support and rent payments he can t keep up with, is driving for a local car service when his quick hands and honorable nature place him in the middle of a perfect storm of danger. He s just trying to make ends meet with a weekend stint counting heads and collecting the take at illegal screenings of the recently banned porno film, Deep Throat, for Mafioso Eddie Vento. But a devious ex-wife, her more devious ex-husband, the wiseguys behind the film (including one obnoxious wannabe with a frenzied beef for Albano), the Fleetwood Eldorado used in the opening scene of the porno film and a host of cops (both good and bad including the deranged one Albano punched out) snowball into an often humorous, sometimes violent, action-packed trip back to the year Willie Mays hit his last home run. This is the world of Johnny Porno.

About the Author:

Charlie Stella is a former window cleaner/word processor/knockaround guy. He left his knockaround life after meeting his wife (for whom he wrote his first published novel in an attempt to impress her). He s since written six critically acclaimed crime novels about the New York City underworld that feature recurring characters on both sides of the law. Johnny Porno is his first venture into the past as it takes place in 1973 when the New York mob was at the height of its power, disco was king and the business of pornography was about to explode across America after a New York City criminal court banned the most famous of all porn flicks, Deep Throat.

From Publishers Weekly:

Set in New York City in 1973, Stella's vibrant seventh crime novel catches the cadence and daily grind of organized crime grunts. John Albano, who lost his carpenter job and his union card because he punched out his foreman, now collects cash receipts for the mob from illicit screenings of Deep Throat, the mob-produced pornographic film that reputedly would earn more than $600 million. Still struggling to pay his bills as well as child support for his beloved son, Albano considers getting more involved with the Mafia, despite his qualms. Stella (Mafiya) tosses an eclectic cast of characters into the mix, including Albano's remarried ex-wife and police investigators looking into the mobster Albano reports to, Eddie Vento. Though implausible subplots at times threaten to overwhelm the main plot, admirers of Elmore Leonard and George V. Higgins will be happy. (Apr.)

Descripción Stark House Press, United States, 2016. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Everybody s out to get Johnny Porno! It s the New York City in the 1970 s and John Albano is trying to get by. But they ve taken his union card and work is hard to come by. He s hired to pick up the cash at showings of the recently banned Deep Throat, which is how he meets Eddie Vento, the local mobster in charge of distribution, who wants him to go to work for him. And Nick Santorra, Vento s loud-mouthed driver, who just loves to ride Albano every chance he gets, and knows how to hold a grudge. And then there s his ex-wife Nancy, now re-married for the third time, still demanding her child support. Nancy is also still seeing her first husband, Louis, a hustler who looks a lot like Duane Allman. But Louis has got a new girlfriend, Holly, and this drives Nancy crazy, which she naturally takes out on Albano. Albano even has a problem he doesn t know about, a drugged out ex-cop named Billy Hastings. Convinced that John is trying to put the make on his wife at a bar one evening, Hastings takes a swing at Albano but John drops him. Hastings is caught on tape starting the fight and he s forced into retirement, but he knows who s to blame for everything--and Albano is going to pay. At the same time, they re all being watched by detectives Neil Levin and Steven Brice from Internal Affairs, who may or may not be on the same side. And Special Agent Darrel Stebenow, who is watching out for Brigit Malone, Vento s undercover girlfriend. And Lt. Det. Sean Kelly, who is watching out for himself. At the center of it all is Johnny Porno--god, how he hates that name!--a guy who s just trying to stay ahead of the hustle and make a living. Just trying to stay alive.
