"Brooklyn Gangsters"-70 Square Miles of Blood and Balls-is a freaking phenomenal piece of true-crime. Any "LCN" or true-crime buff is going to definitely want to read this over, a couple of times, due to the spectacular stories and alot of formerly unheard of tales! From Al Capone, his mentor Frankie Yale, to Louis Buchalter a/k/a "Lepke" and Albert "the Mad Hatter" Anastasia! Each new chapter is awesome, filled with old, dated photos of the original "Midnight Rose's" in Brownsville, Brooklyn, where "Kid Twist", Abe Reles kept a sort of office, after all, he was a major player in "Murder Incorporated", who has been credited with thousands of deaths/murders. Learn about the others in the gang, "Blue-Jaw Magoon", "Buggsy", "Pittsburgh Phil", "Happy" & Louis Capone, who are all mentioned in the book with some very interesting facts about growing up and living in Brooklyn. GREAT PIECE OF WORK...A KEEPER!! Hope this author decides to write another book, his writing prose is smooth.
