Big Alfie and Brooklyn Bagel Blow-Out!
Big Alfie and the Brooklyn Bagel Blow-out is a tongue and cheek adventure into 50's and 60's Brooklyn of the mafia, the brownstones, the good restaurants. It begins with the death of Big Alfie, a player in everything that goes down in Brooklyn. It also turns out that the bagels are becoming the new pizza racket and everyone is vying for a piece of the action including Alfie and the Puerto Ricans who are looking to establish themselves in unfriendly territory. To find the answers, onto the scene wanders Freddy Black, the former adman and cultural icon, who has now morphed into a private detective who was raised on film noire. In his mind, he thinks of himself as Sam Spade or Boston Blackie in a real world of hard hits and people who will profit on your bones. It is a good yarn that delves into nostalgia and all the things that most old Brooklynites yearn to hear again as Freddy goes on record to solve a crime that seems to unravel before his eyes...
