Cold Fury (Cold Fury, #1) by T.M. Goeglein
Release Date: July 24, 2012
Summary (taken from Goodreads):
Sara Jane Rispoli is just a normal sixteen-year-old girl coping with school and a developing crush— until her parents and younger brother are kidnapped, and she discovers her family has been a key figure of Chicago’s Outfit (aka the mob) for decades. Her father, grandfather and great grandfather all used their special ability, cold fury, to settle disputes between the two mob factions—the muscle and the money. And unless Sara wants the mob to think her now missing family has turned state’s evidence, she will have to fill her father’s shoes as the mob’s peacemaker, using her own cold fury.
A book about the mob? Yes, please! The cover is awesome, the main character seems to be pretty hardcore, and the premise of the novel (THE MOB!) has definitely caught my interest! This book looks like it is going to be packed with awesomeness and action, and I cannot wait to get my hands on it!
