About the Book
Adelphos Mou (My Brother) is the story of an attempt to fix a football game by a downtrodden Greek-American gambler. To cover his marker with a violent Mafia family, he approaches his late father’s old bookmaking partner, now with a son who has become a star college football quarterback. The quarterback prepares for the last game of his career, a meaningless game in which his team is heavily favored. Shaving points would be very easy if father and son were to go along.

They refuse. They know such an act would put the young quarterback’s promising professional career in serious jeopardy. Things quickly unravel for all involved leading to acts of betrayal and murder. The father (Big George), his son (Niko) the quarterback and the brother (Stavros) face tests of love, honor, loyalty and revenge.

Adelphos Mou is a story of love, tradition, karma and injustice. The main characters are first and second generation Greek-Americans who face the conflict of their ancient traditions against the culture of the modern world.

The story is thickly plotted with characters like a chorus in a classic Greek tragedy.

The story begins in the underworld of Pittsburgh, winds through New York, London, Las Vegas, Iceland and Greece. The characters, each tainted and impure in their own ways, act upon their motivations, both honorable and selfish.
