Welcome to Mike Romano's World (the author's alter ego) Joe DeCicco is a retired, highly decorated, New York City Detective who, with his first novel, “Angel with a Gun”, received recognition by being included in the
Pennsylvania School Librarians Association 2007 Young Adult Top Forty Best Selection List. Joe's Works are currently published exclusively by JNJ Associates Publishing Company.
His Mike Romano police series explores the moral dilemmas and personality of a righteous man who never sees skin color or creed and must exist in a world full of corruption. Romano interacts with a wide variety of
society’s miscreants and bad guys including, pedophiles, drug dealers and gangsters of every ethnicity.
His entertaining works show sometimes-complex personalities of those who choose to be the daily guardians of our society, while fulfilling the public’s ongoing interest with police work.
DeCicco also tries to include information that the public at large is unfamiliar with, such as how to detect two way mirrors, graphically described in "Worms in the Apple."
Mike Romano's courage and obstinate determination makes for an exhilarating, sometimes action-packed tale, as he tries to follow official procedure, which is frustrating and not often easy.
The reader is drawn into the psycho emotional depth of a modern day centurion. As one reviewer put it, "captured the grit and grime of what it means to be a cop"...another reader stated, "Not only is he a good cop and a
good man, but he made the character likable and it makes you want to sit down and have a beer with him. He's just a regular guy who happens to be a cop."
Joe DeCicco is now residing in North Carolina, and pursues varied interests including writing novels based on his life experiences. The author also tries to include information that the public at large is unfamiliar with,
such as how to detect two way mirrors, graphically described, in "Worms in the Apple."
Joe is an internationally read author whose novels are currently offered for sale on Amazon
in printed format and Kindle format.
He is currently working on additional Mike Romano novels and plans to continue the series
bringing his alter ego along to the present.

Cops live in a world where everything is not black and white, their world is filled with different shades of grey !!!
Steven R. Merola reviewed Dirty Baggs (Mike Romano Novels Book 3)
The Real Thing October 16, 2017
Dirty Baggs is a gritty, no-nonsense, reality-based procedural that keeps you "on the job"
throughout the read. This guy must have actually been to these places because I have, and his
descriptions are spot on! The123Precinct does have peeling paint in the offices upstairs...I was
there once filing an anti-fraud complaint.
The tension combined with boredom of a stakeout is rendered perfectly.
This is a must-read for mystery and crime story fans.
