Read in March, 2012

Fantastic ground zero reading for anyone interested in the American Mafia. There are so many true-crimes books on the mob that it is difficult to even get started. Selwyn Raab is a former crime writer for the New York Times and this book goes through the entire history of the Mafia in New York and sorts the Godfather from the Goodfellas.
