The Geronimo Corndogs

Genre: Fiction/Humor

Author: Richard Palombi

Part history, part humor is what this story is. Set during the great depression with real life characters such as John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson, and Pretty Boy Floyd, and the fictional Geronimo Corndogs. The tale begins with Dillinger and the Geronimo Corndogs, when they ask him to join a foursome bowling team in a league. From there begins a humorous tale of Dillinger and the Corndogs on a spree of muffed bank robberies, FBI chases and the pig stampedes.

With PETSA wreaking havoc in their desire to bring down Augustus, “the pet felon” and the jailbreaks, Melvin Purvis, J. Edgar (Hoover,) (the) F.B.I. and some funny (goings on) in the courts, including Augustus’ prison sentence as a “pet felon,” the story is part reality with a heavy dose of tongue-in-cheek humor.

While the characters are taken from the annals of the FBI with their Public Enemy #1, the Corndogs bring a unique aspect to the history of felons like John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson, and Pretty Boy Floyd. The Nelsons foster one of the Corndogs (John Luther) and act as his surrogate parents while trying to teach him the finer points of being a criminal. They soon find out that John Luther is criminally dysfunctional and will never make it as a bank robber. Read about the various trials that the bank robbers have when working with the Corndogs.

If you enjoy a touch of humor in a story, this story is for you, with shortcuts that end up going to places unintended. Reviewer, Bob Medak Allbooks Review.
