Since OCB Agent Vincent Michael Terranova turned in his Federal badge, fans
have only had a single reunion movie (in 1996) to quench an insatiable

This site --
www.wiseguyfiction.com -- is one that will be in a state of evolution,
so check in often for updates on what is happening in the fictional world of
Vinnie Terranova. Feel free to write us with any questions you may have.
Hope you find this return of Wiseguy to be as enjoyable as we do.
