A law-student stripper, two inept hitmen, the First Church of Elvis, Scientist, and a small-time mobster's biggest scam... Things are about to get all shook up in this hilarious novel filled with explosions, attempted murder, intrigue, and a whole lot more.
I think this guy writes for Mel Brooks. He's THAT funny! The plot is out there from the publisher's blurb, and I'm sure that I met the characters when working the Booking Room (including the excessive/constant use of the word f***). No spoilers to be found here (you wouldn't believe me anyway). Well, I guess that you should know that the "throne" that "the king" sits on is a Kohler. Can you just see a reader sitting in the subway or other crowded place laughing so hard every few minutes that eyes must be wiped? Trust me on this, you's have to be dead not to laugh your way through this one!
And talk about the audio performer, Jack C! Not only does he do voices suited to the characters (double meaning here), but so much of the narrative delivery is laid-back tongue-in-cheek. This is the perfect delivery to showcase the hilarity of the story.

I received this audio book as a gift in exchange for a honest and unbiased review. I really enjoyed this book. It has gangsters, murders, explosions, a strip joint and more. I would classify it as a suspense / action / thriller with a touch of humor. I loved the characters senses of humor in this book. Even bad guys can be funny. Absolutely loved the voices done by the narrator. I loved the voices used for grandma and Pappa. Kat is a coot! Even though this is a suspense / thriller, I found this book to be fun!
The author, Mike Agrento did a great job writing this story. Great plot with lots of wit and many twists and turns! The narrator, Jack Chekijian did a great job delivering this story flawlessly to us. I loved all of his voices!

I liked this book. it strikes me as a book that would be real fun as a movie. if I had to wrap the whole book into one line it would be "if it can go wrong it does!" it is one mess up and oops after another! lots of great one liners that will get you to laugh out loud!
the narration was wonderful. how he comes up with a different voice for each character and manages to keep them all straight is beyond me!
