Graziano’s Latest Has Mass Appeal

In case you hadn’t heard, Vincent Graziano, an area funeral home director who is also a novelist, has a new book out. The Romeo Club, released in January, picks up the story of Frankie Grace, who is also the protagonist of Graziano’s first two novels, Die Laughing and The Family Jewels. Fans of Graziano’s first two books will not be disappointed. Funny dialogue, Graziano’s first strength, is in no short supply. Nor is his second strength: the ability to evoke an authentic sense of place. Graziano grew up in Manhattan’s famed Little Italy, and Coxe & Graziano, the family business he operates, has a Greenwich location, as well as one in Westchester county. Little Italy served as the backdrop for the first two books; for this one, Grace has relocated to the fictional suburb of Inlet Cove.
