Hustlers on the Rocks

New Comedic Screenplay Entertains with Absurd World of Cons and Detectives


NEW YORKLawrence J. Corneck has high-jacked readers and lovingly pick-pocketed them once again in his new hilarious screenplay, FAT FAT Snitch (published by AuthorHouse), a dark comedy with unusual heroes, filled with bumbling parole officers and inept con artists. Companion to his previous books, this time he tells the absurd and entertaining story of Floyd Gibbons, a sleazy, now-retired detective who must give chase to two con artists, Margo and Frank, in order to secure a prestigious position on the parole board.

      Wolf Blitzker, the head of the parole office and Gibbons’ boss, calls the two con artists, “a thorn in the side of this department for a long time.” As Gibbons pursues them, Margo and Frank are each involved in their own nefarious pursuits. Margo, a lesbian who happens to be dating a beautiful blond secretary in the parole office, is adding hotdog buns at Moishe’s Gourmet Hotdog Emporium in order to double charge people for each hotdog sold. Frank, a man who is also a lesbian, is pocketing money for each drink he sells instead of ringing them into The Kon Ticki Lounge’s register.

      One morning, however, Gibbons eavesdrops on the con duo’s conversation. Confusing the words “buns” for “guns” and “drinks” for “chinks,” he immediately begins a fruitless investigation into an Asian arms operation. After a series of hysterical escapades, including the former investigator’s inability to sit after a posterior injury, Gibbons comes incredibly close to achieving his goal, but unfortunately, is foiled by “the one from above,” who watches out for Margo and Frank at every turn for a very unusual reason.
