I like Nate Heller and find this series interesting, but this particular story wanders about and is more historical fiction than a mystery. Given that Nate is a fictional character, the details of his experiences in WWII and in the hospital are kind of irrelevant. The role of the Outfit in both Chicago and Hollywood's history is detailed and, while I find it interesting, I never quite know how much is history and how much is fiction. (I find myself checking characters in the wikipedia in the hopes of figuring it out.) This is the finale of the Frank Nitti trilogy. The last chapter is an epilogue about what happened to the various gangsters subsequently. The writing is good and the performance excellent, so I'm not sorry I listened.

Go back to the gangsters of the 30s and 40s.
You feel like you are there.
I am going to read all the Heller books.
