The true story of a journey – into family history, two unsolved murders, and the dark corruption of New York's underworld in the 1940s – and the discovery of a deadly secret.
LINE OF BLOOD:
UNCOVERING A SECRET LEGACY OF MOBSTERS, MONEY, AND MURDER
Marcus tells the tale of her 28-year odyssey into her family history, which revealed more than she ever bargained for.
The quest to discover her Jewish immigrant roots led her to the mysterious unsolved murders of not one, but two great uncles in 1940s New York. The story unfolds like a classic whodunit with a backdrop of larger-than-life characters—racketeers, gangsters, a tycoon, a glamour girl, corrupt police officials, and a crusading attorney general.
The story cross-cuts to the present, as Jana finds herself in the company of a retired police detective, a cold-case psychic, and a revolving door of characters as she sets out to solve the cold cases. The twisted path reveals the deepest levels of corruption in government, a connection to Murder, Inc., a new theory of Abe Reles' death (the greatest mob mystery in history), and a 75-year-old secret about her paternal family.
Find out who's who in Line of Blood, as we track down the culprits of two murders and discover a grandmother's darkest secrets.
