My brilliant wife and writing partner Marsheila Rockwell and I signed a new book contract the other day, and now it can be revealed!
We're writing a novel based on the hugely popular, award-winning video game Mafia III. The game tells the story of Vietnam veteran Lincoln Clay, who was adopted as an infant by Sammy Robinson, leader of the Black mob in New Bordeaux, LA (a fictionalized version of New Orleans). Shortly after returning from Vietnam, Sal Marcano's Italian Mafia betrays Sammy, killing him and his son Ellis, Lincoln's brother, and leaving Lincoln for dead. The game's focus is on Lincoln's efforts to take Sal and his operation down, and to take over New Bordeaux for himself and his allies.
Our book will delve into Lincoln's past, specifically his years in Vietnam and his involvement with secret CIA ops in Laos.
More details when we have them. This is going to be fun!
