Bravo for this new novella by Peter Cimino. I sat down and read Lucky Says Hello in one sitting. Youâ€™ll be introduced to, Pete Carissimo, a Sicilian immigrant, businessman and politician. I would call â€śBig Peteâ€ť an intimidating gentleman. The setting in this book is so true to life, you might think you walked back in time to New Jersey, 1931.
The author does a great job of writing believable characters. I felt like I was right there at the table with Big Pete and his â€śfamilyâ€ť as they talked of secretsâ€¦and how to keep them secret. This is where the gangster, Charles â€śLuckyâ€ť Luciano, comes in. He could very well be the biggest secret of all. When Big Pete glared across the table at his meetings, even I knew he meant business. Without giving away spoilers, I wonâ€™t go into too much detail about the story. Donâ€™t be fooled by this book being a Novella. The storyline and characters will take you to a satisfied ending. I enjoyed reading Lucky Says Hello, and would like to read more about these characters and their story. Iâ€™m looking forward to more books by Mr. Cimino.
