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

Synopsis

Gangsterland by Tod Goldberg

Sal Cupertine is a legendary hit man for the Chicago Mafia, known for his ability to kill anyone, anywhere, without leaving a trace. Until now, that is. His first-ever mistake forces Sal to botch an assassination, killing three undercover FBI agents in the process. He knows this could be his death sentence...so he agrees to a radical idea to save his own skin. A few surgeries and some intensive training later, and Sal Cupertine is gone, disappeared into the identity of Rabbi David Cohen. Leading his congregation in Las Vegas, Rabbi Cohen feels his wicked past slipping away from him. Yet, as it turns out, the Mafia isn't quite done with him yet. And that rogue FBI agent on his trail, seeking vengeance, isn't going to let Sal fade so easily into the desert.
