Publisher's Summary

Mob opens terrifying windows on the brutal and mysterious world of organized crime. You'll meet murderous wiseguys, scheming Dons and undercover agents risking their lives to break the Mob's most powerful syndicates. The picture that emerges from these stories is astoundingly complex and all too human: a world of warped desire and violent consequences that is at once shocking and fascinating.

    "Disjointed stories"

    This was not what I expected. It's just a bunch of disjointed stories from many books. Most of which are not very good. I would reccomend NOT getting this audiobook. The best story is from Wiseguy the Donnie Brasco book. But this short excerpt doesn't save this audiobook. It just makes me want to get Wiseguy.

    Story
    "Nice little grab bag of stuff, went by quickly"

    These are mostly excerpts from fairly familiar popular mob books -- Donnie Brasco, Underboss, etc. There are stories of Sammy the Bull, Gregory Scarpa Senior, some unnamed but very prolific and connected hit man, and a few guys in the old country. The scenes are mostly from the 1970s onward through the fall of the classic mob. Some interesting weird smaller, colorful characters flash through -- as in, some flamboyant cokehead Sammy Gravano dealt with and did away with, etc. Other than that, there doesn't seem to be a lot of rhyme or reason. It does give a good flavor and sense of atmosphere of being in the life day to day. The book ends with an analysis of the attitudes and culture that led in Italy to cosa nostra, tied into a few actual stories -- that part was very interesting to me, and made a lot of sense.

    Good. I enjoyed and loved these real stories some of which I would not have believed if it was not not for this book.

    "Extremely interesting short stories!"

    Perfect for fans of the Mafia story genre. Lots of narrators and short stories means if you don't like a voice, don't worry it will only last for a few minutes.
