"...A heartwarming burlesque of the American Dream served with a twist of bitter irony. Gino, a gentle old shoeshine man who dreams of owning a fishing boat back in his Sicilian birthplace, gets an offer he can't refuse--to take the rap for a Mafia murder committed by a man he resembles. In return he'll get more than enough money to buy his boat--when he gets out of jail. Jerry, a down-and-almost-out member of the gang, is assigned the task of turning Gino in. But Gino's old-world innocence captures Jerry's heart, and with nothing to lose, he takes Gino on a last fling to Lake Tahoe's casinos. [authors] give this morality tale of tangled identities for sale another surprising spin when Gino's naïveté is mistaken for the lordly ways of a powerful Mafia don."--Back cover
