A light-hearted, very funny glimpse into the underworld. LIvely, authentic dialogue and a breakneck pace make this a thoroughly enjoyable performance. Publishers Weekly Frank Fontana runs a Queens supper club that is neutral ground for mob families. Everything is good for Frank...until things get too good. He wins big at craps in Atlantic City, then wins even bigger in a private poker game, before he realizes that the games are rigged and he's a patsy in a gambling swindle that's put him in the middle of a underworld war...Fontana's restaurant maintains a certain sleazy charm, and their spicy dialogue is as tasty as the calamari. The New York TImesCleverly plotted and well-written. Booklist
