“Are you saying …” My brain crunched the numbers while I blinked stupidly. “… mobsters took my father?” Portland did weird better than anyone, except maybe New York, but we didn’t do organized crime of the Italian-American variety. That I knew of.
Disorganized Crime is the first in the “Kat Makris Greek Mafia Novels” and where Kat discovers that there is a link between the Mafia, Greek version, and her family. As he hadn’t known much about her father’s family she is in for quite a whirlwind when her dad disappears. A visit from “family members” starts her on a wild ride into her past.
“Dad’s parents were a mystery. Not just any mystery—they were a mystery stashed in a safe, buried pirate-style on some remote island. And there was no handy map with an X on it that I could ever find. I’d looked. Half my childhood I spent looking for clues about Dad’s past. Turned out all I needed to do was wait for him to disappear.”
I enjoyed this novel by Alex E. King as it deals with a potentially heavy subject (organized crime) in a more humorous way. If you’re looking for The Godfather, this is not your book. If you want light-hearted entertainment…BOOM!
