Having grown up in NY and an avid reader of Pete Hamill, I was interested about this side of Manhatten and an era I knew nothing about. It was a little slow in the beginning and difficult to keep track of the characters, but it caught my attention towards the middle and it was delightful to listen to. Maybe a little overdone on detail but the individuals eventuallylly come to life and I found myself relating to them, of course not in character, but by being overwhelmed by a society out of control, power run amok and being trampled by the system and people interested in only themselves, their achievments and personal success. Certainly not an original concept but one played out in a unique
corner of society. I ended up having compassion for the victim, though certainly not an admirable person, and his loyal, loving wife, and of course the proper disdain for the system and the injustice it perpetrates to self serve individual desires. Not much different than the world of today and our self serving politicians and political figures, but a different and unique scenario.
