So glad I met this author so I could embark upon this literary journey. This story was structured so well which made it easy to follow all the twists, and fortunately the plot had many. It reminded me of Lee Child's writing in a lot of ways...just the right amount of action, dialogue and narration to make me not want to sleep and just keep reading on like dreaming wide awake." - Amazon Review
"Another fast and furious novel from Mr. Kregas. This time with a new protagonist and set in 1960s Boston. Plenty of action and some quirky characters make for a very enjoyable read. Looking forwards to next one already." - Amazon Review
"Murder Thriller, ‘Club Cargo,’ is a royal flush. The author’s plain-spoken and straight-forward storytelling calls a spade a spade in delivering a slice of life in Boston during the Sixties. Friction between the Italian and Irish Mob factions plays a heavy hand in propelling this page-turner." - Amazon Review
