Would you try another book from David Mamet and/or Jim Frangione?
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?
Chicago settings during that time period
Which character – as performed by Jim Frangione – was your favorite?
Mike, the main character
Did Chicago inspire you to do anything?
Any additional comments?
Mr. Mamet creates great characters but for a story set in the Capone era, I expected more action. This is a character driven book with excellent dialogue not enough insight in gangland Chicago. The Title and cover photo do not represent what happens in the book.

Maybe a chuckle or two but I did not think I'd be laughing out loud. The buddy-banter is hilarious and now we heard Mike's side it makes me want more of Parlow.
Could have used a more dynamic reading, more divergent voices, but that's pretty subjective. I listen to a lot of audio and found the performance bland as compared.
