God on the Rocks
The dead guy sitting in the saggy recliner:. A grey-toned digital snapshot of the body. His body. The dead wop. Whoever had the camera, they were sitting on Sweeney's sofa. Where Sweeney had sat not a dozen hours ago, smoking a cigarette.
Before the two of them can figure out what to do about this new development, Cheryl shows up. One of Sweeney's old girlfriends, his sidepiece:. The complexion and lips of a porcelain figurine but the teeth of a Kentucky tobacco chewer. Cheryl is now married to Sweeney's mobster cousin, Eddie. She and Eddie have fallen on hard times but have come up with a new scam. They need Sweeney's help to pull it off and promise to cut him in. Sweeney has a dilemma. Author Allen Morris Jones is quick with a quip, and absolutely nails the mob talk that readers are familiar with from the movies.
As for Sweeney, what's not to like? The former mobster has a soft spot for dogs, friends, and old folks, and he tries to help wayward kids. He feels really bad about dumping that guy in the river. Almost penniless he's living the straight and narrow. And even though he knows all the wise guy tricks, he doesn't practice them.
