Publisher's Summary

For Doug Fiore running for governor was better than death at the mob's hands, if only the sex wouldn't get in the way.

Mob head Sal Tarantino doesn't want big-time casino gambling to become legal in Rhode Island. His solution is to have the next governor comfortably in his pocket, ready to veto the legislation. That means calling in the debts owed to the mob by some of Rhode Island's most prominent politicians, to clear the way for Doug Fiore, managing partner of the state's largest law firm and soon-to-be reluctant gubernatorial candidate.

Sal's plan seems to be going smoothly until the primary draws closer, when Fiore's opponent, a supporter of state-sponsored gambling and the leader in the polls, is gunned down in a bar along with the establishment's bookie-in-residence. The public presumption, driven by columns in the Providence Herald in which Fiore's ties to the family are laid out, is that the Tarantino family had reasons to want them both dead. Things get even stickier when the winner of the Democratic primary is the husband of one of Fiore's law partners--who happens to also be one of his two mistresses. She learns with horror that her husband has a set of secret recordings taken in a hotel room where Fiore has met with both women.

As the race draws to a close, the candidates are in a dead heat. Fiore, who now will stop at nothing to win, devises a scheme with both his mistresses to nail down his victory. The outcome is all in the sex.

    "There are lies and then there are Damned lies!"
    What made the experience of listening to My Honorable Brother the most enjoyable?

    The reader did a really good job. The story line with all the deception and ethical or unethical acts of "high profile people". Made me wonder if I am not cynical enough in my views of current political players!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of My Honorable Brother?

    When two of the major female characters conspire to take down the #1 politico in the book.


    Have you listened to any of Joe Knezevich’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, I haven't


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reaction, but it did make me laugh, because it is a study in human nature of justification of actions when the actions are in direct violation of propaganda the mouth pumps out

    "Great listen"

    Perfect for anyone that likes politics, big law firm intrigue and Mafia interest. Lots of fun and hope author writes another.
