The Kill - Book One of the Trilogy The son of the most ruthless Mafia boss in eastern Canada is killed, and the father wants revenge. Darwin Kostas is a law-abiding Canadian, a writer with a new bride and a long list of phobias. His fear of the dark keeps him inside after the sun goes down. He also suffers from aichmophobia, an irrational fear of sharp and pointed objects. If confronted with a knife or a needle, his fear manifests as an out-of-control rage. He's also the man who accidentally killed the heir to the Fuccini syndicate. When the newlyweds honeymoon in Rome, a hit team follows. They keep waving things at Darwin--pointy things, like knives. He just can't control himself when that happens, and accidentally kills a few more 'made men.' The Mafia believes Darwin is a trained killer, hired to take them out, and declare all-out war on the neurotic novelist. Darwin returns to Toronto, but the hits keep coming, the FBI closes in, and a local biker gang offers Darwin their help. Darwin just wants to be left alone with a light on. The Blade - Book Two of the Mafia Trilogy The safe house where Darwin and Rosina live is attacked. Five FBI agents are dead. Darwin Kostas has nowhere to turn, no one he can trust. Darwin's phobias cause him great stress and now the media are calling him The Blade, even though he can't stand the sight of knives. The FBI are hunting him. The Gambino family, violent mobsters associated with Italy's La Cosa Nostra, want to know who he works for before they execute him. Darwin just wants to be left alone with his new wife so they can begin a domestic life, but that is not possible with so many people wanting him dead. With evidence piling up against him, a crazed, half-blind FBI agent on his tail, and a relentless mobster planning Darwin's violent end, the only thing he has left to lose is his life. Meanwhile, the Russian Mafia are moving into new territory in Toronto. They want to know who this Darwin guy is and why he is still breathing. When they show up to take possession of his body, Darwin has one surprise left for the mobsters before he dies. The Scythe - Book Three of the Mafia Trilogy In Book One, The Kill, the Italian Mafia go after the wrong man. In Book Two, The Blade, the Gambino Family do it again. In Book Three, The Scythe, the Russian Mafia have different plans. They want to take over Toronto, a territory so large it was previously thought to be too big for one family. But Darwin Kostas and his wife, Rosina, stand in the way. As a peace offering to the Italians and the Chinese, the Russians intend to execute Darwin. First, they have to catch him, but using his wife as bait is not enough. While the Russians attempt to organize a meeting of rival families where Darwin will be terminated, something the Italians tried twice and failed, Darwin realizes he is on his own. With the FBI not able to help and his wife in the hands of the Mafia, Darwin decides the only way to win this war is to kill them all. Darwin fights the Russians in the biggest Mafia war Toronto has ever seen in The Scythe, Book Three of the Mafia Trilogy, the final installment.
