Synopsis

Once Upon a Time in Brooklyn (Book One) Redemption Don't Come Cheap by Paul Mackenzie

This is the preposterous story of three nine-year olds who do something highly amusing but incredibly stupid after going to see the movie Goldfinger. They are caught for their juvenile prank and receive well deserved punishment from their parents. However, the event changes everything and the boys drift apart while fostering a growing distrust of each other. Even so, their residual guilt, a series of letters from the grave that finally start to work, and a strong yearning to be friends again link their lives together for thirty tense years; until fate gives them a chance to make amends or die trying. Their tale involves painting an eighteen month old baby, pet theft from a local Mafia boss, a language challenged priest who pays for insulting the pope, a drunken monkey with a bad attitude, the theft of some unlucky diamonds, an international diplomatic incident, abduction, public humiliation, lying, cheating, murder in abandon, accidental serial pet-o-cide, and of course, a side trip through the twilight zone.
