it was amazing
bookshelves: true-crime
Recommended for: Nick and Meghan
Read in October, 2008

** spoiler alert ** what I learned from this book?? really you have to ask? How about don't Fu** with the mafia! now admitally this book was set between 1933 and oh about 1979 (correction October 5, 1977) I think is when they finally got Danny Greene, It's interesting to me because a lot of it is based in and around Cleveland. Lot's of name dropping, lots of gangster talk and I don't mean the "Yo Yo" kind.
It's based around the popular La Cosa Nostra gangs based all the way out to California. I am almost done and once I'm finished I may be willing to mail it to a certin someones in Akron (nudge Meghan and Nick)
