My Cousin Vinny

The Book Series




Vinny and Lisa have returned to star in a new series of comic thrillers. Our wildly inappropriate attorney and his hot-blooded fiancée will star in a new series of comic thrillers with Lisa leading the investigation and Vinny in charge of litigation.

My Cousin Vinny has always been my favorite film comedy, the one that made me late for appointments if it popped up on the TV when I should’ve been walking out the door. If you're on this page I’m guessing it’s one of your favorites as well. I’ve met very few people, who didn’t remember it with great fondness.

Am I sure?
Yeah! I'm pos-i-tive!

Warm regards,
Larry Kelter

"I've been waiting for years to find out what happened to Vinny Gambini and Lisa. Now we know. My Cousin Vinny comes into the 21st century with this fast and feisty tale of a most unconventional lawyer and his most unusual assistant. Top-notch fun." Steve Berry, New York Times bestselling author of The Lost Order

"Like visiting with old friends, Back to Brooklyn captures the fun and spontaneity of every lawyer's favorite legal comedy, My Cousin Vinny. As surefooted as a '63 Pontiac with Positraction." William Landay, New York Times bestselling author of Defending Jacob

"Lawrence Kelter is an exciting new novelist, who reminds me of an early Robert Ludlum." Nelson DeMille, New York Times bestselling author of Radiant Angel

"If you're anything like me, you can't get enough of MY COUSIN VINNY. So what could be more fun than the continuing adventures of Vincent Gambini and Mona Lisa Vito? I loved every word and every scene of this pitch-perfect, rollicking good story. Lawrence Kelter has an unerring ear and a wonderful knack for comedy. This is the kind of book you will want to read again and again. I loved it!" J. Carson Black, New York Times bestselling author

"I can still remember falling on the floor laughing at My Cousin Vinny. I've watched that movie twenty times since. Now, Vinny and Lisa are back thanks to the brilliant mind of Lawrence Kelter. The characters of Back to Brooklyn have not only arrived back into my life like long lost friends, but the novel has got me down on the floor laughing my tail off."Vincent Zandri, New York Times bestselling author of The Corruptions

"With 'Back to Brooklyn,' Lawrence Kelter turns the traditional mold inside out by taking a screenplay and using it as the basis for a novel. Isn't it supposed to be the other way around? Readers will soon find that nothing about this continuation of the 'My Cousin Vinny' franchise is 'normal.' Vinny Gambini litigates a murder case while his sharp-tongued girlfriend, Mona Lisa Vito, investigates. The result is a murder mystery set in Brooklyn that is full of local flavor, twists and turns, and is just plain funny as hell. I loved it!" Scott Pratt, bestselling author of the Joe Dillard series.

"A quarter century and they haven't aged a day. Vinny and Lisa are still going toe-to-toe in that riotous cat and mouse game we just can't get enough of. Back to Brooklyn is clever, crisp, fun. I dare you not to laugh." Diane Capri, New York Times bestselling author of The Hunt for Jack Reacher series
