Event Details

Join us for the hometown book launch event for Tod Goldberg's GANGSTERS DON'T DIE, the conclusion to his acclaimed Gangsterland trilogy. Tod will be in conversation with crime writer Rob Bowman, followed by a Q&A and a book signing.


“Goldberg concludes his Gangsterland trilogy in style, following up 2017’s Gangster Nation with a mesmerizing comic noir that’s fully accessible to series newcomers. This is a stellar end to one of the most inventive crime series in recent memory. ” — Publishers Weekly (Starred)

“Perhaps the most well-written of the trilogy’s installments, Gangster’s Don’t Die has a great story, exciting characters, and a few nifty surprises.” –– Booklist

“Goldberg continues to redefine hard-boiled with his streaming profanity and ripe intellectualism.“ — Kirkus

“Only thing better than the smell of napalm in the morning is the heavy rain of body parts Tod Goldberg gives us here. That includes the heart, on every page of this conclusion to the Gangsterland series. I want Sal Cupertine to be my spiritual advisor now, please.” —Stephen Graham Jones, New York Times bestselling author of The Only Good Indians

“Gangsters Don’t Die is a thrilling and sometimes hilarious exploration of the myth and the lie and the truth of The Life. A distillation of the gangster’s code (hint: there really isn’t one) and the Code we adopt as we find the lines in our lives we can’t cross. It’s Death of a Salesman meets The Irishman with more laughs. I loved every minute of it.” —S.A. Cosby, bestselling author of Razorblade Tears and Blacktop Wasteland
