SYNOPSIS

On January 12th, 1912 at 12 noon, 57,000 European immigrants comprised of 25 nationalities, 45 languages, (less than 10% of which spoke English), struck against one of the richest men in the world. To add to the drama, they faced a hostile governor and U. S. president, a racially motivated police force backed by the U. S. Army and the worst New England Winter on record.

Against a backdrop of wars raging in the Far East, The Balkans and North Africa, the most hotly contested U. S. election to date and unprecedented, government sponsored violence, a no-holds-barred industrial strike was launched.

In Book II of Paddy Kelly's series Building of Empire: Crime & Politics, the Cornerstone of America, the epic drama of a forgotten story in U. S. history, its Class Wars, is told through a neglected chapter, the Lawrence Mill Strike of 1912.

With the ambience and intensity of Reds and the spirit of Cabaret the story of the largest industrial action of its time, The American Way chronicles the drama of people swept up in events larger than themselves as they refused to capitulate to some of the most powerful men on the face of the planet.

The American Way is the true story of what European immigrants endured in burgeoning industrial America. Played out in seven weeks, in the dead of the worst New England winter in half a century, the story of this historic struggle invites you to come to America, land of the free. Home of the brave.

Where the streets are paved with blood.

      • “A fascinating and lesser-known part of Mafia and WWII history, this
        brilliantly-researched novel is quite an eye-opener!”

             "Dock workers shout and swear coarsely. You can almost smell the
        creosote and tobacco smoke as they do while the impression of a New
        York metropolis coming into its own is particularly potent. As a
        narrator he never has us at a loss as to our location, and using
        something of a film maker's palate, he lets the streets and docksides
        of New York become a central character in their own right."

        “I was a bit wary as I began reading, thinking the use of colloquial
        speech and vocabulary would make the book hard going. However I was
        wrong; instead it gives the book a distinctive flavour, alongside the
        descriptions of a bustling New York."

        “I felt compelled to write and tell you that once into the last fifty
        pages, on my way home one evening last week, I missed my train stop by

                Just a quick "Thank you" for Operation Underworld. Being a
        girl, I'm usually not a fan of crime-related stuff, but I got this one
        off my boyfriend's shelf to read something during a trip - and boy,
        did the trip seem short!"

        "I have been a history enthusiast for many years, and was frankly
        bowled over by the historical accuracy of the novel, as well as the
        effectiveness of the device used to carry the story. Historical
        fiction so often tends to be either too dry to capture one's interest
        for long, or superficial fun to read, but at the expense of historical
        accuracy. With Operation Underworld, Mr. Kelly seems to have found the
        happy medium that balances both.   
        Now of course, we are all anxiously awaiting his next historical
        novel."

              “I am greatly enjoying Operation Underworld. The visual and
        auditory image of the two guys in the hold of the ship striking the
        water valve in unison to the choral strains of the Anvil Chorus made
        me burst out laughing! That is such a great visual, in such a weird
        context!

SYNOPSIS

February, 1942. Free China is lost, the Battle of Britain has been fought and Hitler dines in Paris. World War II is nearly three years old, however the United States resists involvement. With an invitation from the Imperial Japanese Navy at Pearl Harbor everything changes.

In her first ten months of the war nearly 500 American ships are lost. The retooling of Her factories is estimated to take at least a year, and even before it is completed, the men who work in those factories must become Marines, sailors and soldiers.

The U.S. Navy is behind the eight ball, big time. They need help. To compound their problems, the most famous luxury liner in the world, T. L. S. Normandie, has just been set alight and burned to the water-line in New York Harbor initiating wide spread hysteria in fear of German saboteurs. All originating from a misguided sense of desperation, and a well planned feign.

Meanwhile, “The Boss of Bosses”, Lucky Luciano at age 45, is serving a thirty to fifty year sentence in a maximum security prison in upstate New York.

In one of the most ironic decisions of the war, the Federal Government requests the founder of organized crime, Lucky Luciano, to join forces with America’s most secret service, Naval Intelligence. Luciano, has been sentenced to life in prison for a crime that warrants ten years, and is concurrently fighting deportation to an enemy nation where he will certainly be put to death, when he is asked to help the government who condemned him. In addition, he is told he must remain in prison with no chance for compensation or parole.

Mike ’Doc’ McKeowen, a New York P. I., leads us through the story.

Doc just wants to get his life back on track after his business partner ran off with all the top clients, and a long and painful divorce drained him of his house, his family and his dignity. Fate may have a plan for Doc, but he can’t figure out what the hell it is.

Whether you believe the link between the Federal Government and organized crime is a slender thread, or as Mario Puzo wrote, ’. . . contemporary America, where law and organized crime are one and the same.’, you will learn how the foundation of the international drug cartel was laid. You will come to appreciate the saying, ‘Due Facce della stessa Medaliglia’. Crime and politics, two sides of the same coin.

Titanic was an act of carelessness.
Lusitania was an act of war.
Normandie was an act of genius.
