La Famiglia di Mostri Book 1, by D.R. Perry
Dragon Award Finalist for Alternate History!
In November of 1929, the last autumn leaves started a domino effect in Fall River. At a time when most give thanks, others lurk at society’s fringes, waiting for a shot at revenge. Power. Redemption.
A Mafia hit leaves Leo Riley homeless and at the mercy of Oguina, a powerful monster under an ancient curse. A hunter with skin in this game stalks the streets, playing cat-and-mouse with the creatures he’s sworn to eliminate. The capo di tutti capi with a secret gazes into a moral abyss, threatening to take his men with him if he falls. All struggle to hold on to humanity.
Unlikely allies join forces, fighting for their rights to Fall River’s streets and their very survival. Some will fall, some will rise, but can there ever be a winner when crime and change come to call?
About the Author: D.R. Perry lives in New England, where all her books are set. Although she’s not a native Rhode Islander, once up north she got so inspired she couldn’t leave. A wild Northern Muse attacked. D.R. used Typing; it was Super Effective. A Change In Crime earned a shortlist nomination for Alternate History in the Dragon Awards. She lives with her husband, daughter, and dog in the Ocean State, which is not an island and not Long Island. D.R. knows that her home state has both things, but isn’t defined by them. It reminds her that she’s also more than the sum of her parts.
