As high rollers, hustlers, and scheming manipulators use power, sex, and betrayal to win, the strongest survive—but fools die/5(80). About Fools Die “A page-flipping tale of power, brutality and glamour (Library Journal) from the bestselling author of The Godfather. Played out in the underground worlds of high-stakes gambling, publishing, and the film industry, this epic thriller follows two brothers, Merlyn and Arite, as they delve into the dangerous underbelly of American life.

The characters are fun, Donald finally meets a verbal sparring partner, and it has one of the better endings of any ESG book. These are all quick, enjoyable reads, but if you are going to read only one Bertha Cool/Donald Lam mystery, I recommend it be Fools Die On Friday.4/5. I read Fools Die for the first time when I was sixteen and it was chosen by me because of my desire to learn more about Mario Puzo's work aside from The Godfather. It changed me.

It makes you deliriously happy and you just can't leave it alone. But sooner or later the wheels come off. Then you leave it in a corner and forget it. Falling in love is great. Being in love is a disaster” ― Mario Puzo, Fools Die. Not sure if this was Puzo's diary or his autobiography written by himself but this certainly was a queer book. Firstly, the writing is in first person which is really unlike Puzo. Secondly, I can't Read full review. Fools die: a novel Mario Puzo Snippet view - /5(7).

Puzo obviously wants to say Big Things about survival (fools die), art vs. money, love vs. sex, and (most successfully, as in Godfather) betrayal vs. loyalty; and a lot of readers will feel that loquacious Merlyn, supposedly so modest, is awfully full of himself. Fools Die on Friday by Erle Stanley Gardner Book Resume: Death gave its warning in the form of a luscious brunette. She walked into the office of Donald Lam and Bertha Cool, calmly announced that her employer was about to be killed, and paid them a healthy fee to keep the boss alive. For Cool this case meant cold cash. Fools Die on Friday Hardcover – June 1, by A.A. Fair (Author)/5(6). Played out in the worlds of gambling, publishing and the film industry, Merlyn and his brother Artie obey their own code of honour in the ferment of contemporary America, where law and organized crime are one and the same. Follow the action from New York to Las Vegas/5(5).
