The Organ Grinder and the Monkey has a lot going on.  It is a busy story in the lives of three very different people.  Seymour Petrillo, from Steubenville, Ohio, grows up in an Italian family who has enough problems to be a soap opera in itself. The one rock in his life and who he looks up to as a family figurehead is his grandfather Carmen Antonucci. Constance Powers’ family came from a fortune that had trickled away through the generations by the time she came along. Money and joining the Rockettes are her strongest desires in life. She will do anything to achieve her dreams.  Officer Irving Hanhart, a learner of life lessons, shares a great deal of advice as he protects the streets of New York City. Determined to find the answers he hangs onto a lead in his criminal cases and won’t let go.

Author Sam Moffie weaves us an intriguing tale as these three people grow up in a humorous maze of love, lust, and murder. The book is filled with great dialog, bits of trivia from old movies, and really good bands from decades past.  Even Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis have a bit part in this story.  If you enjoy a fun read with a lot of detail to puzzle out, then take some time to join Seymour, Constance, and Irving in The Organ Grinder and the Monkey.
