Two FBI agents investigate a shady real-estate mogul and the mob in Atlantic City in this “hilarious adventure” (Publishers Weekly).
A celebrity real estate tycoon wants to open the biggest casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey—the only problem being that he still owes millions to the mob, and he’s not quite as rich as he seems to be . . .
As FBI agents Mike Tozzi and Cuthbert Gibbons investigate, the story soon involves an oversexed trophy wife, a Mafia boss who pretends to be a mental patient, his sister (the nun), a championship prizefight, and Gibbons’s reluctant wedding preparations, in a witty killer cocktail of a crime novel from an Edgar and Anthony Award–nominated author.
“The pacing far exceeds the legal requirements for crime thriller. Bad Luck, a novel filled to the brim with born losers, turns up a lucky seven.” —People
“Bruno drives deep into Elmore Leonard territory . . . It’s like a giant box of chocolates without a single dud.” —Kirkus Reviews
