"A very clever, extremely well-done romp that somehow manages to make the birth of a granddaughter, the Mafia and global warming all work brilliantly ensemble style. A fine, fun story that is not without serious depth and warmth. I loved it." --Ed Gorman, Writer of the Sam McCain series "A funny, fast-paced crime story whose serious points pack the wallop of a forty-five." --Terence Faherty, Shamus-winning author of the Scott Elliott series. "A hilarious, albeit chilling, eco-Mafia novel--a new species. Lopresti knows his mobsters, his New Jersey, and his science, and knows how to make it all sing." --SJ Rozan, Edgar-winning author (as Sam Cabot) of SKIN OF THE WOLF "RobertLopresti's GREENFELLAS has a great concept and vivid characters, both criminals and commoners. There's snappy patter and a fast-moving story, and it's funny, too. Elmore Leonard fans (and everybody else) should snap this up immediately." --Bill Crider, bestselling author of the Sheriff Dan Rhodes mysteries --- About the Author: Robert Lopresti's writing has been praised for "razor-sharp wit," so watch your fingertips. His most recent book, SHANKS ON CRIME, is a collection of stories about a curmudgeonly mystery writer, and definitely not autobiographical. Lopresti is the environmental science librarian at a university in the Pacific Northwest. He has won the Black Orchid Novella Award and the Derringer (twice), and been nominated for the Anthony. He conceived and edited THURBER ON CRIME. He blogs at and reviews short stories at Little Big Crimes."

Could have been the booze, the world news, or the brand new granddaughter, but in a flash Sal (The Screwdriver), consigliere to a powerful New Jersey mafia family, decides that the goodfellas must go green to save the world for future generations. This won't be easy. But it will be funny, expected hits not withstanding.

Author Lopresti knows his mob, and his territory, so prepare to enjoy this kind of Sopranos-Lite.
