MURDER TAKES TIME grips you by the throat.
Nicky Fusco thought he knew right from wrong, living by an oath of friendship & honor with his three best friends. But life took them down separate paths, and the oath was broken. Secrets were kept. Years later they are reunited and the bonds of their friendship are brutally tested, putting them on a collision course set in motion long ago.
Murder Takes Time is not a typical murder mystery or mob story. It is a thriller, a romance, and a coming-of-age story that rips your heart out. By the time you're done reading it, you just might find yourself rethinking the definition of friendship & honor--even right and wrong.
Three boys, one girl. Friendship, honor, love--betrayal. It ends with murder.
"Oaths And Promises Are Forever-Or Are They"
--Review from Chris Phillips at Bestsellers World:
"Giammatteo brings new life to the typical detective murder story. He takes the time to develop a complex plot into an attention-capturing tale of intrigue and friends betrayed, remade and destroyed.
In this tale, there is a lot of right, wrong and terribly, frighteningly gray. When the time comes and it is needed for oaths to be remembered, they are forgotten and life is never the same. The murders draw them inexorably together yet again. The common thread shows how badly a betrayal of friends can mess up the men that were always supposed to be oath-bound brothers.
The characters are smoothly real. Giammatteo takes the time to develop them naturally. Each takes their fated place and struggles with the people they become.
The tragedy of the way these lives move brought tears to the eyes of this reviewer. The final betrayal is brokenheartedly realistic."
More Praise for Murder Takes Time:
"There is a reason why this book is rated so well. It simply is a great read."
Murder Takes Time is An excellent read about a group of boys/men in a dual timeline format. One chapter from a time in the past and the next chapter current day. Sometimes this works for authors and sometimes only one story line is good.
In this particular novel the author has done an excellent job with both story lines. They tie together extremely well along with a high quality plot. Combine it all together and you get a great read and one that deserves the overall high customer rating on Amazon.
This reviewer (and many others) highly recommend Murder Takes Time."

This book is spell-binding. Giammatteo writes as I feel he must have lived, and each boy's family life is explained to show what makes them the men they become. Friendship & Honor. That's what it all comes down to. It should last forever. --NLE
Clearly Mr. Giammatteo is not quite right in the head, as evidenced by the fact that he came up with the incredible "railroad spike revenge." It is one of the most finely crafted pieces of revenge fiction ever drafted. My hat is most definitely off to his creative genius.--Mich Carrnett
