    good read

    I just read The Silent Don by Scott Deitche and I enjoyed it. I learned a lot about Santo Traficante Sr. and Jr. and how they ruled Florida unabated for decades. Marked Card was a different type of story than that of the Florida mob during its hayday. It read like Goodfellas. It showed me that the mob wasn't glamorous anymore but instead a cut throat kill or be killed life style. I especially enjoyed the detailed story telling of the two authors. I enjoyed hearing a story told by a soldier in the Patriarca family who had been there almost from the start of the war. To hear him speak of the treachery and betrayal of today's mob was truly inspiring. The glory days of the mafia are long gone.

    finally a tell all story that's told in the first person

    I found this book to be unique in it's genre. Most mafia books I've read are told by some reporter or third person source that interviews the wise guy a couple of times. Silverman tells the story the way it should be told. He also doesn't follow typical mobster protocol. He doesn't make himself out to be someone he wasn't. He also tells some intimate stories about many of the guys that were in the news during the 90's and 2000's. I follow the New England mafia very closely and I can tell you that his stories weren't found in any news papers. It was very interesting to hear about the involvement of at least two of the New York families during New England's internal mob war. Only a guy in the know could tell those details.
