Description Frankie Machianno, a hard-working entrepreneur, passionate lover, part-time surf bum, and full-time dad, is a widely recognized pillar of his waterfront community. I love the way Don Winslow writes. When he’s not on a rampage, that is. He owns a bait shop on San Diego pier, supplies fish to the best local restaurants and has a property rental portfolio.

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I enjoyed every minute immersed in the world of Frankie Machine; a great story, fine writing, plus education on how what’s left of the mafia operates.

Since his daughter just got into medical school, it looks like Frank is going to be busy for the foreseeable future to pay those bills, and that’s just fine with him. My thanks to the good folks at the Pulp Fiction group for introducing this and many other fine books. Frank is there to help out the local fisherman, sponsor little league soccer teams, guide fathers on where to take their sons fishing, advise surfers on where the big breaks are located, and carve out a little time for himself.

Want a superbly entertaining crime fiction tale with laugh out loud dialogue and interior thoughts?

Getting to the point of the actual story was the most important aspect of the book. In the first few chapters, we maxhine a clear picture of who Frank Machianno is, and what his life is like. Then things get really bad, really fast. When things go down, towards the middle of the book, the story picks up. The unique thing is that Winslow df taken it over the top to a Grand Theft Auto scale where you’ll also be ducking ijvierno and participating in crazy shootouts.

They struggle to paddle through the crashing surf in search of their perfect wave. I would like to read more of his other books because he is an amazing writer and I have not seen so many writers use such description in scenes and made their protagonists so entertaining as Don Winslow does.

Don Winslow can really write, he makes what could be generic ideas in to something fresh and readable, his books are not really about the crime or the kills like most authors using the genre today but about the people and the effect the lifestyle has on them, he doesn’t revel in the brutality yet he is aware that it exists.

At various times an actor, director, movie theater manager, safari guide and private investigator, Don has done many things on his way to being a novelist. There is something zen about both surfing and fishing. Frankie is retired from the life, but of machne you can’t outrun your past. His introduction of Frankie “The Machine” Machianno is masterful.

Winslow uses a lot of surfer jargon in the book to appeal to the readers because Frankie really is a surfer dude, always has been even though he is a hitman. No trivia or quizzes yet. Book ratings by Goodreads. This book gave me a new love for mafia books. The narration by Dennis Boutsikaris was excellent and definitely added texture to the characters.
