Publisher's Summary

Author Ron Chepesiuk chronicles the little known history of organized crime in Harlem.
African American organized crime has had as significant an impact on its constituent community as Italian, Jewish, and Irish organized crime has had on theirs. Gangsters are every bit as colorful, intriguing, and powerful as Al Capone and Lucky Luciano, and have a fascinating history in gambling, prostitution, and drug dealing. In the late 1800s, Harlem became a highly fashionable neighborhood.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

total waste of time and credit

What was most disappointing about Ron Chepesiuk’s story?

the writing was mediocre at best but the narration was really poor -- the reader couldnt pronounce some of the most basic historical crime names <br/><br/>was embarrassing to hear -- The narration clearly wasn't edited

How did the narrator detract from the book?

big time

Could you see Gangsters of Harlem being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

no

don't bother

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Dullsville. Very abreviate stories and no real conection to the characters is formed. The narrator mispronounces words. No sense of neigborhood culture emerges.
