December, 1985. Sol Edelbaum, gambling addict, is in deep trouble with the Gambino family. Find out to what extent his doting mother, Edna, will go to protect her degenerate bubela from the Mafia. Learn what really happened that fateful day Paul Castellano was shot down at Sparks Steakhouse in Manhattan. And perhaps most importantly of all, learn how to get a jar of Gefilte fish off the top shelf.

This book was nothing like I expected. It was absolutely hilarious! The only complaint I have is that I wanted it to last longer.

Sol Edelbaum has some gambling issues and he owes a lot of money to a powerful mafia family. His problem is that he cannot pay back and his physical integrity is in serious danger. But there is nothing than a mother will not do for her son.

There was real action in this book, and the events and outcome are unexpected and, honestly, impressive. It was a very entertaining story, and despite it being quite short, I found it engaging and the characters interesting. I can definitely see this adapted to the big screen.

Steven Jay Cohen did this brilliant story justice with his narration. He did an excellent job transmitting the humor in the story, but also Sol’s fear and awe. Cohen’s portrayal of Sol’s mother was just exquisite! A memorable little audiobook that I recommend to everyone! It is impossible to finish it without a smile.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
