Hollywood Bilker Review

We are back with another post from the Alex Cohen series so make sure you check out the boxset!


Is building another casino worth dying for? 

Jewish gangster, Alex Cohen returns to America and settles in 1960s California to build a drug and prostitution empire in LA. When he gets a call from the mob to help the CIA invade Cuba, Alex must decide between family and his business associates.

If he helps Uncle Sam and the Mafia then he puts his life on the line fighting for freedom and the chance to rebuild his Havana casinos. If he refuses the favor then death will call on him, his ex-wife and their sons. Once he agrees to one accommodation then others are sure to follow, in a decade where even presidents, assassins and presidential candidates were whacked at a terrifying rate.

The sixth book in the Alex Cohen series is an historical thriller novel, which rips open Jewish organized crime involvement in Lee Harvey Oswald’s death and the assassination of Bobby Kennedy. Leopold Borstinski’s searing crime fiction lays bare the making of today’s USA.

My thoughts 

Back again with Mr Alex Cohen. This series has been a part of my reading journey for quite some time and these books just get better and better. 

I love Alex. He is a hard ass who takes no shit but in this one he is living at a slower pace. I really enjoyed seeing him and Sarah back together and getting everything back in order. 

Book five ended with quite a bang but book six is definitely a much more slower story but I loved it. 

We see many famous people dotted throughout this story like Marilyn Monroe, JFK and Bobby Kennedy which is so interesting! 

I cant wait to see where the rest of this story goes. I’m hoping for a happy ending with this series but Alex has had a pretty lucky life for the world he lives in.
