The Pips of Paradise

Written by Michael Ciminera

“… a tightly written, funny, acerbic and entertaining story. Top flight reading. Welcome to the literary world, Michael Ciminera! GRADY HARP, HALL OF FAMER, TOP 100 REVIEWER.

“… Ciminera employs realistic dialogue, clever metaphors, and a well-executed twist at the end. Overall his writing has the feel of something that I could see Elmore Leonard penning, and the author could easily construct a solid crime novel on the foundation of these two goons. KEVIN JOSEPH, AMAZON VINE VOICE.

“I loved Michael Ciminera’s writing style and voice. He creates a cinematographic feel when reading as if watching the story like a movie. His quick wit, mystery and suspense make you want to turn the pages. AUTHOR, JENNIFER OWEN DAVIES.

“The hilarious dialogue between our downtrodden protagonists, Otto and Mordy, drives this captivating story. AUTHOR, TERRY W. SPROUSE.

The Pips of Paradise is a suspense thriller about two low level wiseguys who dream of turning their life of chance into the chance of a lifetime. But when their big break finally comes and goes sour, they must choose between their friendship or loyalty to a mythical street boss known as The Man With The Plan.
