** NOTE: contains some profanity, because let's face it: it's hard to get these Mafia guys to talk nice. Forget about it
Tony Bartolicotti (or Tony Partly Cloudy, as his friends in Brooklyn call him) can predict the weather with a level of accuracy that's downright freakish. But no TV station is interested in hiring a weatherman who looks and talks like a Mafia goon. Until now...
When a distantly related mob boss applies a little pressure on Tony's behalf, Tony's career starts to take off. Soon America is falling in love with the only weatherman on TV who would predict "a whole lotta freakin' snow." But then the mob decides to call in the favors they've done for Tony. That's when things get stormy.
Tony Partly Cloudy combines elements of comedy, satire, Mafia lore and romance into a slick, funny novel that readers of Elmore Leonard and Carl Hiaasen will enjoy.
