If you feel the "alure" of the Depression era Gangster/Outlaw, a book about "Legs" is a must! The Author manages to capture the rise and fall of John Diamond in a particulary pleasing and always interesting way. You will read of a man who associated with many of New York's infamous "Bad guys", and how readily many of them became his enemy. Is he deserving of the "reverance" of criminals such has Capone,Luciano,Moran etc? Well you can make up your own mind. One thing is for sure about "Legs", he sure took some "putting away", the man was shot, and survived several times till he met up with his maker! A Very fine read, well meriting it's 4 star rating.
