Anthony DiMento is a nice young man known to his friends as Merlot. Why would anyone want to hassle him? Seems he borrowed funds from the wrong lender—the unscrupulous, germophobic mobster Declan Osborne. Merlot owns a bar with money problems and Osborne, backed up by his enforcer Milton, has given Merlot a week to make it right.
Wouldn’t you know this would be the time Merlot falls for lovely bank teller Cindy? Add Otto O’Malley, who’s the brains behind the state fair taste treat sensation, Deep-Fat-Fried-Bacon-On-A-Stick and also infatuated with Cindy, and season with a sprinkling of spice from stripper Serpentina. Top off with the sinister Ditschler brothers; Mendel, Lucerne and Elvis, and you’ve got the perfect recipe for another crazy Mike Faricy suspense thriller.
Funny, entertaining and action packed, the twists and turns of this wonderfully fantastic tale will have you enthralled from start to finish. Merlot is another hilarious tale of crazy people, doing incredibly strange things, in pursuit of the almighty dollar.
