Having just turned sixteen, Sara Jane Rispoli’s birthday is anything but sweet.
Returning from her first high school dance, Sara Jane walks into a ransacked home and finds her family missing, the dog maimed and a psychopath in a ski mask who won’t rest until she’s dead. With nothing to go on but a clue hidden in a bust of Frank Sinatra, Sara Jane jumps into her dad’s 1965 Lincoln Continental and drives into the night.
The clues lead her to an ancient, worn notebook that contains a guide to a Chicago hiding in plain sight— safe houses, secret doors, mysterious phone numbers are all suddenly at Sara Jane’s disposal. But it also contains darker, more troubling secrets concerning the Rispoli family, including the revelation that a rare and powerful hereditary trait passed down from the time of Alexander the Great enabled certain male members of the Rispoli clan to become major figures in the Outfit, Chicago’s storied crime syndicate.
Sara Jane realizes the secret-filled notebook is the reason why her family was taken, and why she’s being pursued by three different factions: her turncoat uncle, Police Detective Dotty Smelt, and the huge, shambling freak in the ski mask. Learning of the gift awakens a realization in Sara Jane that she, too, possesses the powerful phenomenon.
With the help of a weight-challenged sidekick, an angry Italian greyhound, and a legion of guardian angel sewer rats, Sara Jane is chased, attacked, and fights back with cold fury, staying one step ahead of her pursuers and circumnavigating the male-centric Outfit while also keeping a growing romance.

Ok, first of all, I have to say that this is not my typical read. But it sounded really good so I gave it a shot and well, I really liked it. I don't like boxing very much. I think its really dangerous. But upon reading this book, it does help out in life if your family is in the Mob. 

So we meet Sara Jane, who is about to turn Sweet Sixteen... only it hasn't been what she had in mind. 
She finds out that her parents have kept secrets from her and her little brother for a very long time and when something bad happens, she must try to figure out what those secrets are.

I don't want to ruin the book with spoilers so I'm just going to say that this book was amazing! Lots of action packed scenes, total roller coaster ride! This book was awesome! I didn't think I was going to like this one because of the genre and I generally don't read books by male authors... but I enjoyed this book very much!

If you're looking for an exciting and thrilling action packed book, 
then T.M. Goeglein's Cold Fury is just for you!

I gave Cold Fury 4/5 Butterflies!
