Mobsters: What's Not To Like?


My Rap Sheet is one pretty piece of work. Take a look at what I done so far.

Gang Name: Vinnie the Mug

Title: Head of the Hi Octane Gang, downtown Caffeine City
Main Disguise:
Source
Get Away Car: When out of Regular Coffee


Known Heist:
One hundred pounds of Starbuck's Coffee, ten Starbuck's Mugs and a handful of stirrers. Armed with napkin holder. Considered dangerous when confronted before coffee in the morning.

Catch Phrase: Hand over the beans. 


Now here's Officer Blake Herro. Watch out! He's infiltrating the MOB, and if we're not careful, he'll take all of us down.  



30 SECONDS BEFORE BLURB:

Blake Herro is a cop in the Cleveland Police Force. Ever since he was a child he wanted to do right by the city he loved by cleaning up the streets and protecting its citizens. Red, a notorious mobster, has other plans.

On a bitter December night, ten police officers are drawn into a trap and killed by Red’s followers. Blake wants to bring down the Mob to avenge his fallen brothers and to prevent other cops from being murdered. Except the only way he can do that is by infiltrating the Mob.

Every minute he’s with these mobsters he’s in danger. Around every corner lies the threat of coming face to face with a gun. Will he make it out of the Mob alive or will he be their next victim?

  1. Hi, Cheryl Lee!

    Those mug shots made me do a spit take and spray coffee on my screen. :)

    It's nice to see my friend Chrys in your post. Thanks for the blurb summarizing her new prequel book. Looks like a great one.

    Have a wonderful weekend, C-Lee!

  3. Disaster Chrys may leave her Mob so she can get in on all of that coffee. ;)

    Did you know there was a real Mobster named Vinnie Carwash?

    Thanks for participating in my Mobfest!

    1. I knew there had to be a mobster somewhere called Vinnie, but Carwash? That's unique.

  4. Hand over the beans!? Ha! If I was the stealing type, I might sneak into the animal shelter and help myself to the kittens.

  19. If you robbed a Starbucks of all their coffee, I think the public would hunt you down. They run over the police and all other authorities.

  20. Love your get away car. Not sure how far you would get, but it's unique. This has been a fun and different blogfest. I thinks it's cool the way Chrys used it to promote her book. Her book sounds like just my kind of read. I'm very excited for her.

  21. Fun way to do this! Not sure you'll get far in that getaway car, but with all that coffee I'm sure you can just stick your feet through Flintstone's style and go to town.

  23. What an adorable mobster profile! And your 'mug shot' almost had me in tears it was so funny. Good thing your heists involve Starbucks and not Dunkin' Donuts, otherwise we may have to 'war'. :)

    1. I like to specialize, so Dunkin' Donuts is safe for now.

    At the risk of repeating myself, Chrys, this was really a 'novel' idea;)

  28. I LOVE your mobster personality! You cracked me up! I need to make a stop in Caffeine City. Considering the lack of progress on my WIPs, I probably need to take up residence there. Congrats to Chrys!

    1. Progress is relative, Lexa. We should compare notes on our WIPs and then you'd feel you were speeding ahead.

  30. I love your mug shots. I am a big fan of coffee and even though I haven't been back to New Orleans in 25 years, I still get a monthly coffee shipment from Cafe Du Monde.

  31. I'd love to get my mug into one of those! Off to get coffee!!
    Congratulations Chrys!

  32. Ha! A most clever theme but I would expect nothing less from you. I thought of doing a wine related blog similar to what you did.
