Bronx, NY (PRWEB) August 19, 2012
Author Jacob Miller, in his engrossing and gruesomely thrilling mafia novel Untouchable, wrestles with the criminal mind. Based on a true story with actual facts, this book follows the biggest Latino gangster ever recorded to be associated with the mafia since the beginning.
Set against the backdrop of the Spanish Harlem (El Barrio), NYC, during a period when it was a slum neighborhood integrated by immigrants, Untouchable tells the life of Frankie Moreno. The book narrates his early encounters with death in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico; his childhood experiences as a victim in El Barrio; and his own criminal activities which opened the way for him to gradually rise through the ranks and eventually become the leader of the Untouchables, one of the most feared Latino street gangs in East Harlem.
Readers will learn that Frankie’s increasing activities with the Mafia as a major drug dealer involved the French Connection, the Pizza Connection and finally, with the Columbian Connection under the leadership of Pablo Escobar.
Remarkable and tensely exciting, Untouchable is a tale of unspeakable horror that will leave readers as unnerved and invigorated as the Godfather movies and Carlito’s Way.
