In Bronx Boy, Book One of The Zombie Island Trilogy, Firpo begins his journey through the one way door of eternity in search of life's ultimate revelation.
It is 1959 in New York City. A serial killer is loose in Central Park and a copy cat killer, of sorts, prowls Firpo's Bronx. Firpo is thirteen years old and his faith is being tested by the world around him-family, friends, mysterious creatures known as girls, even by his beloved baseball Giants.
Firpo confronts the confusion that comes with adolescence while the police struggle to capture the serial killer, and he and his friends strain their wits to identify their neighborhood's copy cat killer.
As events unfold, Firpo grapples with life's many mysteries, sweet and otherwise. In the process, he questions what place faith holds in his journey through life. As he closes in on the answer, Firpo realizes the journey has only just begun.
