So does bad company, like the well-heeled, well-armed gangsters who regularly convoy their bosses to Fontana's supper club just across the river in Queens to play craps.

SIGNED BY AUTHOR to title page. Book and dust jacket appear in fine, unread condition. Remainder marking to bottom edge. Second novel. Jim Cirni [ps. James N. Cirnigliaro] wrote three excellent novels about the New York underworld between 1987 and 1991 [all published by Soho Press]. He recreated the conversations and the low-life settings of Queens and Atlantic City as skilfully as Boston's George V. Higgins and with Donald Westlake's sensibility and humor for his hapless hoodlums and mobsters. 'The Come On' continues the story of Frank Fontana, now an owner of a supper club in Queens, a favorite hang-out for gangsters and mob bosses. " This crime novel involving a high-stakes poker game features some extremely poor losers. "-Publiushers Weekly. "The dialog...[is] tough, accurate, and laced with humor and venom. "-Library Journal.
