    " Great subject matter delivered with arrogant mediocrity. "

    " I liked this book! I enjoyed getting to know Joey and his henchmen and I felt like I was one of them throughout the book. I particularly liked the fact that Folsom also attempted to understand Joey on a deeper level so that he could understand the mafioso's reasoning for doing the things that he did. The story at times would jump around and that would throw me off the emotional high that I was on just a few paragraphs ago. I understand that this is a true crime novel and filling in the gaps is a bit hard for the author so I gave this book a 3 star rating. "

    " Great premise and subject matter, horrible execution. Badly organized, spotty, overly novelistic and unfocused. A book that has the sentence, "he didn't know nothing" and isn't dialogue is hard to take seriously. "

    " Folsom tries to get too cute with his writing, and it comes off a bit stilted. I didn't really end up learning that much, when it should have been a fascinating story. "
