It’s not just a novel about war, or simply a love story. It’s about a moral dilemma faced by a young man trying to move past what he’s done and what’s been done to him

Author Jim McGinty grew up in Brooklyn, the setting of his first novel, “Right to Kill: A Brooklyn Tale” (published by iUniverse). He personally experienced the social turmoil of the late 1960s from the battle front to the home front. In his first work of fiction, McGinty provides a new perspective about those who lived through this difficult period.

“Drawing from his own life experiences, Jim McGinty has artfully created an excellent debut novel,” said Alan Bower, director of Channel Book Sales at Author Solutions, Inc. “We are proud to name ‘Right To Kill’ as an iUniverse Rising Star.” The iUniverse Rising Star program recognizes excellence in writing and overall market potential.

“Right to Kill: A Brooklyn Tale” is about a Marine Lieutenant’s noble journey gone badly, and the epic moral struggle that ensues. It features street-smart characters, loyalty, romance, gritty combat, murder and a touch of humor. The novel appeals to a broad spectrum of audiences, including New Yorkers, Vietnam Veterans, Marines and historical fiction buffs.

“‘Right to Kill’ is a many sided tale,” notes McGinty. “It’s not just a novel about war, or simply a love story. It’s about a moral dilemma faced by a young man trying to move past what he’s done and what’s been done to him.”
