This book was Astutely researched and engagingly written. There were some typos some information could possibly get mixed up with information being translated from one author to another especially while the guy is in W.P. and a publisher then re typing the info you have to allow for minor error. I am a criminal justice educator and have studied,read & have seen documentaries on many true crime stories obviously this book was well researched, and as far as Frank Saggio being who he says he is there are public record docs and family members verifying the information to be true in the book. Fred Rosen is an astounding veteran author in True Crime he is new to writing organized crime my applaud to him in writing a well written thouroughly researched book. If you are interested in true crime and family this book had me in suspense, how much more can go wrong to this family right to the very end of the book. Two Thumbs up!Was this review helpful?

A great story about a family. Seems to be a very realistic look inside the life of a member of the New York Mafia. A must read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

I am an avid reader of organized crime books and I have to admit I was taken back when I had seen a review written from Buffet of BS from CT and researched his comment in reference to Benjamin 'Lefty Guns Ruggerio' I thaught I remembered reading something about lefty's gambling problem, so I went back and skimmed through my 'Donnie Brasco' book and sure enough on page 149 a similar statement to that of Frank Saggio's was made by FBI Agent Joseph Pistone and I quote 'His problem was so bad that it had delayed his becoming a made guy. He told me that when I first met him, he wasn't made yet, and that was because he hadn't paid off his gambling debts. He whittled them down some, and because of that he was able to get made shortly after I met him, in the summer of 1977. But now he was in hock again for a huge amount.' This book is obviously thoroughly researched and I found it to be a great read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
