A law-student stripper, two inept hitmen, the First Church of Elvis, Scientist, and a small-time mobster's biggest scam... Things are about to get all shook up in this hilarious novel filled with explosions, attempted murder, intrigue, and a whole lot more.
"It's an understatement to say that Mike Argento is a funny writer. His wit unfolds across every character, scene ,and scenario of Don't Be Cruel. Virtually every page elicits grins and frequent gut-busting laughs. I'll never sit in a church pew again without looking at the altar and imagining the worship service at the First Church of Elvis, Scientist." (Mike Leonard, columnist, The Herald Times, Bloomington, Indiana)
"Bizarre, clever and full of pitch-black humor, Don't Be Cruel is one hell of a debut novel! Argento's voice, prose, and wit are sharp as razors." (Brian Keene, best-selling author of Ghoul and Darkness on the Edge of Town)
"In his first novel, the delightfully goofy Don't Be Cruel, Mike Argento proves once again he's a twisted bastard with a heart of gold. This crime caper novel is filled with classic Argento observations of true life absurdities that devoted readers of his columns (and there are more than a few of us) will immediately recognize and appreciate. He'll hate me for saying it, but his sentimental side is on fine display in Don't Be Cruel. As I have done countless times, I'm simultaneously shaking my head head wondering, ‘What the hell is wrong with that boy?' as I'm smiling and thinking, ‘Awwwwww.'" ( Lauri Lebo, author, The Devil in Dover: An Insider's Account of Darwin v Dogma in Small Town America)
