Sept. 15, 2012 - PRLog -- The first book in the Teen Mobster Series, Accidental Mobster, is scheduled for release by Bluewood Publishing on September 18, 2012. The book is told from the perspective of Danny Higgins, a poor teenager who moves in with his wealthy godfather. But Danny quickly discovers his new extravagant lifestyle comes at a big—and illegal—price. When Danny’s tagged by an undercover FBI agent to help take down the mob leadership, he is forced to choose between his loyalty to his godfather and saving innocent lives.

The Accidental Mobster is a deviation from recent popular teen fiction, which has relied heavily on paranormal characters and dystopian themes to draw readers. In contrast, the Teen Mobster Series, and the Accidental Mobster in particular, gives readers a chance to explore contemporary subject matter that has captured the attention of audiences for decades—from the classic movie The Godfather to the more recent HBO series, The Sopranos.

“I actually wrote the book because of my strong respect for law enforcement and my fascination with the history of organized crime,” author M. M. Cox said. “Accidental Mobster dabbles in the real world of crime, so it’s an exciting alternative to much of the young adult fiction one sees on the shelves at bookstores.”

Accidental Mobster will be sold in print and e-book format by Bluewood Publishing on their website and by other vendors including and The print version can also be requested at most bookstores.
