Jean-Claude the waiter doesn't like it when a new guy horns in on his territory. Even when the new guy's a private waiter working for the meanest mob boss in town, Mr. Donzatto. No way will Jean-Claude let some mob flunky steal his thunder. He'll stop at nothing to put the new guy in his place, from tripping him up to breaking him down with a series of violent "accidents." But playing hardball with a mob waiter is risky business, especially when the last course of dinner is a dark secret that could change the whole menu forever. Don't miss this exciting tale by award-winning storyteller Robert T. Jeschonek, a master of unique and unexpected crime fiction and mysteries that really pack a punch.
