One girlfriend -- trouble. Two girlfriends -- double trouble. Mafia vengeance -- multiple trouble.

And yet he's able to muddle through, using the tools of the lowlife gumshoe: logic, persistence, and a disregard for legal "niceties."

Can he avoid Mafia vengeance for hiding out his old mob friend, Johnny Dosso?

Not to worry! If Big Bob Zapolska can't outwit, or out trick his many "opponents," nobody can!

NOTE: This is a full-length Novel (91,000 words)
