From the days of prohibition to modern times, this debut novel by MN author, Duane Schwartz, follows the saga of Cobb's Landing, a favorite rest stop to whiskey running gangsters of the past. Safe from the scrutiny of the law, underworld figures were free to frohlic, gamble, and drink undistrubed until the rape of a teenaged girl rifles a placid town to take action.
Providing refuge from the gangster wars of the Prohibition days, Cobb’s Landing became a haven for the leaders of organized crime and a location where they were free to frolic and party. The wild and careless actions roused the town to become a gang of vigilantes determined to rout the high-flying gangsters from their locale. Surviving a personal tragedy and deliberately prevented from associating with his mobster grandfather, Adam Bell was determined never to return to the scene where his family had been destroyed. Still, something was calling to him, something from the past, something that hovered over him. Could it be tied to the gorgeous Maggie Bartell, someone that he should know? But how? From when? And, from where?
Adventure, action, passion, love and intrigue abound in Schwartz’s exciting tale of the development of a lifelong bond which is held in place by the terrible secrets of three youngsters whose lives are molded by the incidents of one, long-ago day.

"Sheriff Morgan shot her", Frankie Beletucci told his friend, Jake.
"I know," Jake said. He brushed at a fresh tear. It had been Amelia, his Amelia, who had been shot. The last he saw of her, she was being carried, bleeding and sobbing, to a waiting airplane. "Let's go find Jonah Cobb. He'll know what to do."
Well researched and written story about crime...
"Cobb's Landing", by author Duane Schwartz is a MUST READ for anyone interested in organized crime and gangster conflicts during the exciting prohibition days.
This book is a spellbinding account of dangerous undertakings, crafty plots involved in sinister ends, treachery, lies and intimate relations.
I've read a many crime stories by various authors but this one had me turning pages with all the anticipation of a suspense novel.
I would most definitely recommend this book to anyone interested in a book filled with exciting adventure, mystery, suspense and intrigue.

|Most girls get their fair share of compliments from their husband, but mine comes in writing for all the world to see. If you read no more of Cobbs Landing, read the dedication.|
