Bumping Off Fat Vinny - Revenge is Sweet - Review by Martha A. Cheves
CEO of Vitali Publishing, Vincent Vitali tips the scales at just over four hundred pounds, distributed evenly over his five-foot-seven frame, earning him the nickname of Fat Vinny. As he sat in his office glaring at the man and woman seated across from him, he drew on a cigar and blew smoke in their direction. "You call this piece of crap finished? It's not the book I thought it was going to be." Danny Garrett, a former FBI agent with a string of successful books behind him tensed as he said "Well, you thought wrong. This is the book we signed a contract to write. We're willing to do some minor touch ups, but you're the one who gave us the assignment. Danny's co-author Margaret Stanton added, "Look, Vinny, you wanted the memoir of a Mob wife; you got the memoir of a Mob wife. "My problem is -" Vinny paused, 'There are no investigative interviews. Did you contact Tony "The Nose's" brother.What about the Mob bosses his widow rags about in this piece of garbage? It's her word against theirs."
Much to the disapproval of Danny and Margaret's agent, have signed a contract, not with Vitali Publishing but with Fat Vinny himself. They have completed their part by giving him the memoirs of the wife of mobster "The Nose" who was murdered a few years earlier... but, Fat Vinny isn't a man to be reasoned with. With an iron clad contract he can change his mind about what he wants and will get what he wants or hold the manuscript until he does. So, what can Danny and Margaret do to make him change his mind and let them have their manuscript back? Ahhhh, that becomes the fun part of this book!
This book is full of humor with a little suspense mixed in here and there. That is until you get to the end and discover that there was more suspense than you realized. Yes, what I'm trying to say is that there is a very big surprise at the end. This is another fun book from Authors Dennis N. Griffin & Morgan St. James. Don't let this one slip away before reading.
