A Maxim Jakubowski selected title. A wonderfully sprawling thriller of mafia life and aftermath, in which Sal Cupertino, a notorious Chicago hitman is exiled to the dark glitterland of Las Vegas where, after reconstructive surgery following a botched job in which he was seen and had to kill FBI agents, he emerges as of all things a rabbi, David Cohen, which all things said isn't too much of a stretch for him as it unpredictably opens up the door for all sorts of further criminal activities like using the cemetery for other purposes, organ trafficking, etc...! Dark humour, colloquial wise guy machine gun patter, devious schemes by the dozen and a determined federal agent on a trail of revenge inching towards him form all the ingredients for a both violent and light-hearted gangster adventure at times gruesome as well as funny. Splendid entertainment. ~ Maxim Jakubowski
