Right to Kill A Brooklyn Tale
In his debut iUniverse novel “Right to Kill: A Brooklyn Tale”, Jim McGinty paints a picture of New York in the 60’s.

In his first work of fiction, “Right to Kill A Brooklyn Tale”, the author provides a new point of view about the people who lived through this difficult period.
“Drawing from his own life experiences, Jim McGinty has artfully created an excellent debut novel,” said Alan Bower, director of Channel Book Sales at Author Solutions, Inc. “We are proud to name ‘Right To Kill’ as an iUniverse Rising Star.”
