  • Résumé

“[A] hilarious, warm look at one of organized crime’s oft-neglected ethnic groups.”--The New York Times Book Review

William Gordon’s dear Uncle Max is dead. Dear, crooked, murderous, notorious Mafioso kingpin Uncle Max. But Pulitzer-winning foreign correspondent Gordon always knew Uncle Max to be generous. Now, even in death, Uncle Max comes through, for he leaves Gordon millions--in the form of a Mafia territory.

The only catch is that Gordon, the cultured journalist, might have to fight to retain his piece of the mob. On the other hand, who wouldn’t fight for half a billion dollars? But can an educated Jewish reporter who regularly rubs shoulders with world leaders really succeed as a semi-don? Maybe--if he’s greedy enough, and not afraid to get his hands dirty or bloody. . . .

Praise for Inherit the Mob

“I can’t think of two professions that more richly deserve each other than journalism and organized crime. Zev Chafets does an honor to them both.”--Carl Hiaasen, author of Native Tongue

“If you think there’s nothing funny about organized crime, pick up a copy of Inherit the Mob. Zev Chafets makes his fictional debut in this sidesplitting spoof of Mafia family matters, manners, and misadventures. . . . Chafets has perfect pitch for dialogue and an eye for vivid, unforgettable characters.”--The Cleveland Plain Dealer

“Lively entertainment.”--Chicago Tribune

“A full-fledged romp bursting with energy, good humor, and plot curlicues aplenty.”--The Detroit News
