GANGSTERNATION by Todd Goldberg is every bit as funny as GANGSTERLAND the initial entry into this Las Vegas- Chicago Mob tale of comic woe and laughs. Sal Cupertine is a deposed hit man. He has been relocated to Las Vegas, and is a Rabbi. And such a Rabbi. Quoting the Torah and the Talmud, all the while calculating how he can escape his new identity, reclaim his wife and child, and get out once and for all. Unfortunately, the mob bosses back in Chicago have other ideas, as does a dedicated ex-F.B.I. agent who wants revenge for his murdered partner and a few other dead agents. Goldberg has written a funny, unique and sometimes poignant novel of mistake, regret, and faith. GANGSTERNATION is violent, unpredictable, and wonderful. Read it if you know what is good for you.
