    1. BOOK SYNOPSISFor a select few people, friendship lasts forever. Nicky Fusco and Frankie Donovan were friends like that, but that was years ago. Now Frankie’s a detective in Brooklyn’s Homicide department, and Nicky is a reformed hit man. But when Frankie gets in trouble—and the law can’t help him—he turns to Nicky. The problem is that Nicky promised his family, and God, that he’d go straight.My ThoughtsWhat can be said about a book that you totally cannot put down but that it was a f [...]

    2. Warning: I'm about to do some gushing. I simply adore Nicky 'The Rat' Fusco and his family, Frankie 'Bugs' Donavon and his cop partners, and Giacomo Giammatteo's writing. I just do. Nicky is such a complex character. On the surface he comes across as a little simple, but he's really quite sharp. He tries to pass himself off as no threat, but he's actually one badass mother f_cker. On one hand he seems a little naive about his reputation (and in general), but he's actually more than aware of it a [...]

    5. This is the second of Giacomo Giammatteo's crime novels I have read, and I am very impressed. The novel picks up the story of ex-hitman Nicky "the Rat" Fusco and his best friend detective Frankie Donovan as the two meet at Frankie's father's funeral. Frankie has a problem: a hometown cop thinks he's guilty of murdering the husband of his sister Donna. Since he's got to get back to the Big Apple to deal with a serial killer there, he asks his good friend Nicky if he'll find the killer. From there [...]

    6. Another amazing book by Giammatteo! I never wanted the ending to actually happen because that meant this incredible story would be over. I can't wait for the third book in this series. Giacomo has written another masterpiece! Bravo!

    7. Murder Has Consequences is the second book in Giacomo Giammatteo’s thriller crime series, Friendship and Honor. It takes place on two fronts, Brooklyn, NY and Wilmington, Delaware. The minute New York Detective Frankie “Bugs” Donovan heard of his father’s death, he headed out to his old neighborhood in Delaware.

    8. In the second book of the Friendship & Honor Series, Murder Has Consequences, the riveting story about childhood friends, mobster Nicky Fusco and Brooklyn Homocide Detective Frankie Donovan, continues where it left off in Murder Takes Time. Author Giacomo Giammatteo once again weaves a fast-paced and gritty no-holds barred murder mystery thriller that captivates the reader's attention as Nicky and Frankie are reunited under the bonds of friendship and honor.Frankie is on the hunt for a bruta [...]

    9. Murder Has Consequences is the second book in the Friendship & Honor Series. There is a code of honor among thieves, if you will, and murder does have consequences.

Frankie is called home because his father has died, there is tension between his sister Donna and her husband Bobby. Shortly after his father's funeral, Frankie encounters Bobby [...]

    10. This is sort of an odd book. It's funny in places, especially as it features a bunch of not-so-wise guys from Wilmington, Delaware. But then it's deadly serious in others, with a family man striving to go straight, and a butcher of a serial killer on the loose in Brooklyn. You don't know whether to laugh or cry.Frankie Donovan and Nicky Fusco have been lifelong friends. They and their families and the other people in their part of Wilmington are close, and when Donovan's father dies, all of them [...]

So he asks his friend, Nicky to ask around and see what he can find out.There have been a couple murders that are linked and that's the case that Frankie is working on.

    12. Giammatteo presented the reader with a polished and masterful mystery. Who killed Bobby Campisi the night of Frankie Donovan's father's wake? And that's a question for only one of the mysteries needing to be solved in this mystery! Detective Jimmy Borelli had Frankie Donovan in his sights as Campisi's murderer and told him not to leave town. But since Frankie was a cop with Boston PD, he was needed in Boston to help on a diabolical case.The storyline moved quickly, encompassing both the Wilmingt [...]

    13. I thought 'Murder Takes Time' would be a tough act to follow, but this book delivers in aces. Frankie and Nikki are reunited by tragic circumstanstes that only get worse as the plot unfolds. Friendship and honor place them back to back against those who seek to frame Frankie. The story has many unexpected twists that bring the reader to the edge of their chair, unable to stop until the book is finished. Aside from the thrilling plot, one of the things that make these books stand out is the chara [...]

    14. My Thoughts and Opinion:I was first introduced to this author when I read the first book in this series, Murder Takes Time. I was blown away with his debut novel, and quite honestly, was skeptical if the 2nd book would do the same. Did it?Within the first few sentences the reader is reacquainted with Frankie "Bugs" Donovan, NYPD and Nicky "The Rat" Fusco. And thus begins a page turning read. A book of non stop action including murders, kidnapping, drugs, friendship, honor and loyalty. Short chap [...]

    15. I love reading about Italian families. This was a perfect book to do that in. Frankie and Nicky had a lifelong friendship. Frankie was a detective in Manhattan, New York, but their hometown a small town Wilmington,Delaware. Nicky was trying his hardest to go straight after being a hit man. When Frankie' s father dies he goes back to Wilmington, Delaware. But going home is not always easy. When conflict and murder happens it's up to Nicky to clear Frankie' s name. Nicky was rough and tough but al [...]

    16. As the most frightening hit-man ever to turn from violence, Nicky, “The Rat,” Fusco has sworn to his wife and God that he won’t take another life. Then “Bugs” Donovan, a cop who laid his career on the line to save Nicky from his last rampage, becomes a prime suspect for murder. Because Bugs can hardly help himself as he and his partners hunt a deranged killer, he asks Nicky to investigate and help clear his name. This, Nicky must do without returning to the world he knew. Except that e [...]

    17. There is an odd cadence to the writing. I don't know if it is the switching between first and third person voices in moving between characters. The two story lines between the two characters also felt disjointed. The serial killer had nothing to do with the murder in Delaware. They were two stories sharing one novel, connected only through the Frankie character. At least in the first novel in this series, everything connected in the end. I had hoped for more. Let's hope this is just a sophomore [...]

    18. I really enjoyed this book. I did not read the first book in this series, which I regret because I think I would have gotten more out of this book. However, I was still able to get invested in the characters. I really liked Bugs and Nicky characters. They were very likable and the story kept my interest. May be reading the third in this series because I liked the characters so much.

    19. Why aren't there more reviews on this book series? I simply cannot get enough of this series. Great read. my only issue - I am going through them too quickly!

    20. GreatGetting better. I enjoyed this book. There weren't a lot of nicknames that I found confusing in the first book.
