“Fans of the George V. Higgins school of crime writing should jump at Alex S. Avitabile's new Al and Mick Forte book, Where's . . . Eli? Avitabile knows Brooklyn, and he has a gift for distinctive voices. I couldn't get enough of this book."
--William Boyle, acclaimed author of his own tales of Brooklyn: Gravesend, The Lonely Witness, A Friend is a Gift You Give Yourself, and the forthcoming City of Margins
