Painting a vivid picture of murder, courtroom drama, family loyalties and disloyalties, journalist Jeff Coen accurately portrays the Chicago Outfit's cold-blooded - and sometimes incompetent - killers and their crimes in the case that brought them down. In 1998 Frank Calabrese Jr. volunteered to wear a wire to gather evidence against his father, a vicious loan shark who strangled most of his victims with a rope before slitting their throats to ensure they were dead. Frank Jr. went after his uncle Nick as well, a calculating but sometimes bumbling hit man who would become one of the highest-ranking turncoats in mob history, admitting he helped strangle, stab, shoot, and bomb victims who got in the mob's way, and turning evidence against his brother Frank.

Not very good at all.
Would you try another book from Jeff Coen and/or Matthew Boston?
If your big into mafia and audio-books, you will hate this book. First, it sounds like a 1970-80's read. Second, the narrator is awful. But if you can get past that, the data it conveys is interesting. They go into a lot of nonsense that doesn't need to be in the book and duplicate things unnecessarily.
