Jimmie is a true Irishman. He is also a family man. He has a beautiful wife, Betty and an adult daughter, Dorothy. Jimmy has tried to live an honest life but it is hard when his daughter requires lots of medical assistance. Someone has to pay for it. That is why Jimmy though his bar makes pretty good money, he works with the Mafia, doing smuggling work and some heist jobs here and there.
Through out the course of many years, Jimmy has made some really close friends that have his back. Jimmy learns that he has been diagnosed with a medical condition. One that makes Jimmy realizes that it is time he sells his bar and move down to Florida to be with his family. Jimmy has a nice egg’s nest that amounts to about several millions. It is locked up in some secure foreign bank accounts. Jimmy needs his friends to help him get the funds out.
I liked the plot for this book but unfortunately I couldn’t find any connection with the characters, which turned me off a little. I liked how Mr. Seamus wrote the story. It was like one of those old classic shoot them up, not down, drag out Mafia style noise I enjoy to watch. One thing I did like was that everything Jimmy has done in his life was not because of greed or even because he was a bad guy but because he really loved his family. He is just a good ol’ Irish boy.
