In truth I started to read this because a friend of a friend had wrote a novel and I wanted to show some support to an indie writer.
For the price of 99 cents, buying it was a no brainer. Initially I was overanalyzing the novel as I got started into it. I felt the first chapter was well written and intriguing enough for me to turn to the next chapter. The book took a step back nothinf thereafter as there was a lack of originality and a repeat use of descriptions in the first part of the book. It In truth I started to read this because a friend of a friend had wrote a novel and I wanted to show some support to an indie writer.
It was easily forgiven, again, because for a dollar I wasn’t expecting a masterpiece. As I continued to read, the story started to come alive.
For Nothing : Nicholas Denmon :
I found myself reading more and more with each sitting, until last night when I refused to go to bed until I finished.
The plot was thickening so well that I was praying I would not be disappointed in the end, and I wasn’t. The ending was not cliche, nor was it predictable. It was a great debut novel from a promising young author. There’s definately some room to grow if he wants to spin his hero into a series, but I believe any expectations will be well met. May 29, Sharon rated it really liked it Shelves: So glad I did Definitely want a sequel! Such a professional editing job too as for 69p you usually find an appalling edited ebook but this was flawless to my memory.

He went along and he watched his friend get killed. With justice and revenge as a motivating factor, New York City cop, Alex Vaughn, goes back undercover, as Victor Garducci, to find the man responsible for Jack’s death.
Bu assassin Rafael Rontego does his best to stay ahead of and out of the way of the war that is brewing within the mafia underbelly. His most recent hit, a seeming successful operation, sets in motion a fr of events that could end up disrupting this plan and put him right in the middle of the war.
Nicholas Denmon’s For Nothing captured me from the amazingly descriptive opening chapter. It is a tale I am thrilled to have gotten a chance to read. It sent shivers down my spine. It made me foe over my shoulder to see if Silvio Dante was sneaking up ready to take me out. The characters in For Nothing are so descriptive and intriguing that I even had a difficult time disliking the assassin.
Rafael is the bad guy. I’m not supposed to like him or want him to prevail in notying away with murder, but I couldn’t help it. There were many times when I found myself trying to will Rontego to go a different direction so he would not walk into any danger.
Feb 21, Missionman rated it did not like it. I have to agree with the other readers who don’t understand all the high reviews on Amazon.
I had such high hopes for this book. What an awful letdown. This book is dreadful; poorly written and chock full of 1-dimensional cookie-cutter stereotypes.
How bad is the writing you ask? Here are some examples: So which is he – emotional or devoid of emotion? Wha I have to agree with the other readers who don’t understand all denmonn high reviews on Amazon. No, he didn’t kill his best friend in all of Canada, the killer is in Canada – but that’s not what the sentence says. These are the kinds of things that would drive a high school English teacher crazy.
How on earth did it ever escape an editor’s eye? This book broke me. The best thing I can say about “For Nothing” is that the machinations of the Buffalo mafia were interesting.
It seems that the author has done his homework. The tone is about right, but there my praise if you can call it that abruptly ends. I’ve read this book so you won’t have to.
You have been warned. The novel was written, obviously.
But it was not crafted, also obviously. The characters were wooden and the prose was simply atrocious. Four or five edits later, I could see this being a good book. But the writing really got in the way of enjoying the story. The plot itself moves ahead in spite of the characters, dnemon reading through this is like running up the side of a mountain over a half mile of scree.
Neither experience was very pleasant. May 13, Nicole Smith rated it it was amazing.
Some of have been real duds that have fallen short of capturing the right tone for that sort of book. This story is gritty and definitely captures the tone of the Mafia world, as seen in shows like The Sopranos. From the very first page of this novel, I was hooked!
The opening scene made my jaw drop because of how descriptive it was. If future authors are looking for a shining example of how to hook a reader from the very beginning, For Nothing is a novel to look at. Nicnolas was completely intrigued by him, and found Mr. I was easily able to visualize him in my mind. In fact, I was able to visualize the entire story without much effort because of the detail included within the pages. Denmon did his research. So I give For Nothing a solid five stars.
I honestly cannot wait to read the next installment. Jun 28, Gareth rated it really liked it. Dark and dangerous thriller: A hard-boiled gritty thriller, vividly describing the Mafia underbelly and the fragile undercover cops that work within it. The central core of this story is about one such undercover cop seeking revenge against the assassin that killed his best nicholxs. But the environmental surrounding is rich with betrayal, violence, and vengeance.
Alex has given up his personal life as an undercover cop, and regrets it. And both must fight for their survival — from the mob organisations, and from one another. With crooked cops nicholss in, and intense all-round rivalry, demarcation lines keep getting redrawn.
Thus, trust is a rarity; Suspicion and duplicity are rife. This is fast-paced, exciting and… a recommended read! May 15, Allie Burke rated it it was amazing. This is the first “Mafia Crime Thriller” I’ve ever read. Mystery, suspense, thrillers, yes, but never anything like this.
