But best of all, Breslin captures the moments in which the Mafia was made and broken. Breslin was there the night John Gotti celebrated his acquittal, for example, having bribed his way to innocence.
In The Good Rat, Breslin brings together the most recent, most memorable, and the long forgotten stories to create a sharp-eyed portrait of the mob as it lived and breathed, as it sounded and survived.

What the !?
Being a fan of mob books I thought I would try this one. It took me two attempts to finish it. It seems to be wandering memories of Mr. Breslin. It jumps around telling seemingly unconnected stories. Don't expect too much from this one.

Not so good of a rat
I am fascinated by stories about the mafia. However this book is long winded and not fascinating at all. The author laments the death of the mafia and glorifies these guys at times. I liked 'Mob: Stories of Death and Betrayal from Organized Crime' much much better. If you want to hear stories about the kinds of things these guys did without praising them or getting the feeling the author misses them, look elsewhere.
