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.

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.

Did you think that "Deadwood" got loads better after Al Swearengen began talking like Hamlet?
Would go into your local chip shop and ask for "two servings of your finest seafood and vegetable hunger solution"?
If not then it won't take very long for this book to get on your nerves
