Better Off Dead In Paradise
Staten Island, NY (PRWEB) July 10, 2007
Just when you think you are safe - all hell breaks loose! That's what has happened to Frankie Granstino and his fiancée, Alicia.
"Better Off Dead In Paradise" is the new action packed, Mafia thriller novel, and sequel to "Better Off Dead". "Better Off Dead" told the story of Frankie Granstino, the young life insurance salesman from Brooklyn New York, who got trapped by the Vongemi Mafia Family into writing life insurance policies on people who ended up dying mysteriously.
Frank was in line to get killed to keep him quiet. The FBI managed to save him and Alicia in the nick of time whereby they became FBI witnesses and placed in the Witness Protection Program. The Vongemi Family Mob leaders were sent to prison for life. But prison doesn't weaken a powerful Mob Family. They continue to rule, but with a newfound vengeance, an intense urgency for revenge.
Better Off Dead In Paradise, now takes us to the pristine Cayman islands in the Caribbean, where Frank and Alicia, a former FBI agent, believe they are safely hidden away from the powerful Vongemi Family, safe in the Witness Protection Program.
Something goes terribly wrong when Frankie and Alicia's witness protection location is suddenly compromised, and Mob associates are suddenly in the Caymans blowing up cars and shooting up victims in their mad pursuit of Frank and Alicia.
The story takes us through all three Cayman Islands, to New York City, and back to the Caymans. All the while, lives are lost, bullets fly, and Frankie and Alicia are on the run for their lives, once again, from the ruthless Vongemi Mob Family.
Author, John Paul Carinci, in his fifth novel, gets inside our heads as we feel, taste, and fully visualize the intense fear Frank and Alicia sense from an all out imminent Mafia hit on their lives, where no one stands in the killer's way in the pursuit of the two.
Dramatic events keep unfolding chapter by chapter, which makes the exciting Better Off Dead: In Paradise the page turner book of the decade.
EXCERPT: It happened so fast. An instant of insanity. Like a show from hell. First, the car, parked, the engine running, a man behind the wheel. Then a madman with a gun. I watched, while standing close by, as Bobby "The Bull Dog" Vongemi obliterated the driver's side window with an explosive punch of his fist. Then, in the blink of an eye there were five blasts from Bobby's gun into the man's head. I felt horrified, unable to move. Then, Bobby's voice, loud in my ear, "Frankie, get us out of here! Now!"

A Comment from the Author: My writing is geared towards all ages and walks of life. My writing is very visual, as if the movie is playing out right before you. My ultimate goal is to have the a person who rarely reads books, delve into one of my books and realize that they can't put it down. Only then will I feel that all my writing efforts have paid off.
