Canadian Jerry Prager Upsets Townsfolk with New True Crime Book

I came across an interesting article on the Guelph Mercury website about Ontario true crime author Jerry Prager (pictured left) who recently self-published the second chapter in his true crime trilogy, Legends of the Morgeti.

The website noted that Prager's second book in the series "relates to crime connections, between 1922 and 1950, in Guelph's immigrant population from the village of San Giorgio Morgeto in southern Italy, where powerful criminals known as the Calabrian 'Ndrangheta operated."

On Prager's blog, he received a comment from a reader who not happy about his books. The comment was in response to the author's announcement of the booksigning and said:
That's great. I'll be there. You son-of-a-bitch. "Maybe he deserved to die, you'd almost have to hope so." Who the hell asked you for your opinion? I'm looking forward to this. You??? See you on Saturday.

Apparently, Prager's signing went off without incident.

If you are interested in purchasing a copy of Prager's books, you'd better hurry. He only printed up 635 copies of Volume 1, of which only twenty remain. He only printed up 300 copies of Volume 2.

You can buy the books directly from Jerry Prager here.

Good luck with your book, Mr. Prager. We here at BOTS always support new authors and ones taking risks to spread the truth. Keep up the good work.
