    Good Mob Book

    This is a very good book on the Chicago mob dealing with the years for the 1950¿s, 60¿s and 70¿s. The book is loaded with tons of information on Sam ¿Mooney¿ Giancana, Chicago¿s most famous mob boss other than Al Capone. The book goes into great detail about his organized crime operations, his life as mob boss, his friends, his enemies, his lovers, his association with Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, his family, and the battle between Giancana and the FBI. It explains how the FBI investigated Giancana and the steps that were taken to bring him down. It¿s a good book!
