Book synopsis.  Enter if you dare. The underworld of Southie was an environment of unbridled crime and violence; a place where street justice ruled, judgment was final, and penalties were brutal.

Within 67 Cents: Creation of a Killer, you will meet Nick, a man who thirsts for respect and acceptance, and thus, can't seem to say "No." As a young South Boston auto-repair-shop owner, he is slowly drawn into the Mob, accepting increasingly risky assignments. His large, secure garage is prized as the perfect place for storing hijacked trucks, holding covert meetings, and much more. In the midst of this dangerous and complicated  environment, Nick finds rare moments of peace and comfort under the strangest of circumstances, but trouble always lurks around the corner. During his intense existence, dishonesty sows the seeds of deception. The resulting violence calls for the ultimate revenge; murder. Not only does Nick find that he's good at killing, but he actually enjoys it!

 *Contains adult language and violent scenes.

 "67 Cents: Creation of a Killer" is a fictional adaptation of the author's true life story, "The Constant Outsider, Memoirs of a South Boston Mechanic".
