About Ernie

Hi, my name is Ernesto Lijoi, I write under the name Ernie Lijoi Sr., my site is I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY on St. Marks Ave in 1942 of Italian decent. If I may I would like to tell you a brief story about how I recently became a writer, after retirement.
I was a Police Detective for the Transit Authority back in the 1970’s in Boston, Massachusetts.
After a specific arrest of a suspect for narcotics, I was asked to take a 30 day job as a Deep Cover Investigator for a larger City in Massachusetts. This job required a new identity, Eddie Pannoni. Because of the expertise that I acquired, I was still doing the same job under the guise of Eddie Pannoni 18 years later and had a very interesting and exciting career.
In 1980 Sonny Grasso and Eddie Eagan came to see me (Known for the French Connection Movie and others). They wanted to do a book about my career.
By that time I had the two contracts on my life. I refused the book because of the never ending work that I had to finish.
At age 65, I decided to write the first book named “Street Business” with Mr. Larry Matthews. We were published a few months after it was written. I began another book and Larry suggested that I send it in without any help from him. I did and it was published.
I now am 71 years old and have 11 books published see my site a TV show scripted and based on my book The Butcher of Boston, a Movie project scripted and based on my book THE PREYERS. Both projects are under review for funding. I also write poetry and short stories.I also have a thired Movie project scripted that I can not coment on at this time.
All of my books are based on fact although told in a fictional manner with everything, including locations changed along with names and dates. You may read more about me at
I should mention that I worked with The FBI, ATF and DEA as a deep cover detective. I have enough material (newspaper clipping, reports, etc.) for at least a hundred or more books. I worked narcotics, murders, robberies and more. I was always on the inside of these jobs as a deep cover operative.
