Publisher's Summary

Vinnie Callabrese toils in the mean world of a Mafia hood, violently enforcing his loan-shark boss's debt collections, but he lives in the world of the movies, one where he can tie a bow tie like Cary Grant and speak with the voice of Tyrone Power. Vinnie is smart, too, and he finds a way to turn his dream world into reality. Arriving on the West Coast with a new identity and some ill-gotten gains, Vinnie discovers that his sociopathic nature is just the ticket for handling the intrigues of Tinseltown. He employs his old techniques of deceit, coercion, sexual conquest, even murder, to carve out a place at the top of the film industry.
But Vinnie's old neighborhood friends have excellent memories and a long reach, and soon his fast-track career is facing derailment, or even worse, a new driver at the controls.

What would have made L.A. Times better?

Really didn't hold my interest. And the ending was like the author just got tired of writing and ended it.
