Him, Me and Paulie
– Murder, Drugs and Undercover –

Veteran West Side MCU Captain Rudy Beauregard is in hot water again, both with the Federal/State Drug Task Force and local criminal justice agencies. Ignoring their attempt to put the skids on his every movement, he and his MCU team of detectives and a group of unauthorized informants move to get justice for the assaults on his family, his detectives, and the murders of young anti-drug crusaders, Dominican assassination squads, and local area drug barons. The slow moving, fast thinking captain is seeking vengeance on the perpetrators of these crimes. Despite the deliberate interference of the Federal/State Taskforce, whose objectives are focused on crippling the narcotics distribution network, Beauregard has determined that there are strange connections that defy logic in the series of murders. He is looking for a phantom in the drug business named the ‘Spider,’ but wonders if even the Spider would allow for the perversity of the murders of the young women and men members of the anti-drug crusade. A surprising and quick ending has Beauregard again prevailing.

Years ago, seven boys connected as children at their local boys club. The strength of their bond lasts through adulthood—and now has serious, possibly murderous, implications. But now, with blood in the air, will they turn on each other or gang up on Beauregard as he seeks to uncover the truth?

Pellegrino’s first book has earned her a spot among my beloved modern writers. Her writing allowed me to enter a storyline that pretends normalcy within a realm of serial murders. (…)
