Title: The Accidental Don
Author: Guy J. Tirondola
Date Published: 3/2012
Locals in a small southern coastal village come to fear Donato De Luca, the stranger who has settled among them, whom they wrongly surmise to be a Mafia don. Donato, a bar owner from Newark, on the run, falsely accused of stealing money from the mob, uses his new-found evil identity as a force for good, combating hatred, bigotry, superstition, and finally confronting the mob boss who has arrived to kill him.
Donato’s journey reveals that some men are born wicked, some men achieve wickedness, and some men have wickedness thrust upon them.
Check out the reviews at both GoodReads and Amazon. This book is receiving 5 stars from several reviewers. While I haven't had the opportunity to read this this book and review it yet, I am stunned with the five star reviews. I am definitely adding this to my TBR list soon.

Guy J. Tirondola is a child of the North and a son of the South, a denizen of city streets and salt marshes. He was born and raised in Newark, NJ, but spent his summers in Beaufort, SC. This clash of cultures informs his writing sensibilities and was exploited in his recently completed novel, The Accidental Don, which is available on Amazon.com.
Guy left his vocation as a healthcare professional to indulge his avocation. He lives in Toms River, NJ, with his wife, Joyce, where he is writing short stories and a sequel to his novel.
