Back to Brooklyn (My Cousin Vinny #1)

BACK TO BROOKLYN                                     LAWRENCE KELTER

Gambini is back! Hot on the heels of rescuing his cousin Bill and Bill’s friend Stan from an Alabama electric chair, our wildly inappropriate hero, Vincent Gambini heads home to Brooklyn where he attempts to establish a successful law career. Meanwhile, Lisa aches to have a wedding band placed around her finger and her biological clock is still ticking away like mad.

In the course of building his practice, Vinny is reunited with Joe, his walking, talking embarrassment of a brother and his dear old friend Judge Henry Molloy, who refers him the mother of all capital murder cases.

Theresa Cototi is young and pretty but far from innocent. Her boyfriend has just been scraped off the pavement after taking a dive from eight stories up and she’s going to trial, charged with murder one.

Aided by Lisa and a ragtag team of misfits, Vinny defends his client against overwhelming odds. In the balance hangs the life of a woman he believes to be innocent. Or is she?


The story picks up with Lisa and Vinnie trying to leave Alabama, but even that has some problems. When they finally make it back to New York Vinnie is set on working and making money. He also ends up in court a few times trying to get his brother Joe out of trouble. His other two problems are Lisa, and the case he picks up which the D.A. thinks will be a slam dunk because he is new. With the odds against him once again along with family members because they feel he is not doing right by Lisa. You have the makings for a very good book. The description of the characters are a little different than the movie especially Vinnie, but that is okay. Overall the story works and I am good with everything except the ending. Lisa has been with Vinnie for ten years and I wonder how many women would stay around. Overall a good book. I received this book from I gave it 4 stars. Follow us at
