Format: Mass Market Paperback
Crittle does an excellent job describing the main characters and the different crimes that they committed whilst associated with the bonanno crime family and Joey Massino's crew. Another plus point of the book is the chapter on the rubout of the three captains, Sonny Red, Big Trin and Philly Lucky. However the book was just lacking that something extra that would have made this a great read. Overall though I would reccomend this book to anyone interested in the life of Joey Massino. Also excellent photographs in the centre pages.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is a must read for any lover of this genre. It provides an excellent insight into one of the most feared men in modern years. Not to sound like im praising the man, because he was a twisted physco, but he was very clever and had an excellent business mind. This book does a very good job to document Massinos rise and fall in the Bonanno Familly and i highly recomend it.
My one negative is that, like the other reviewer said, it does tend to jump about between past and present, but its easy to get used to.

By E. Granter on 26 May 2014
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
A fairly lightweight summary of Massino's career. It does contain some personal colour and some detail about his business dealings. However, there are quite a few sections that consist of court transcripts cut and pasted. This is fine in the sense that we hear the mobsters in their own words, but they sometimes seem rather over-used. Whilst business issues are discussed, some, such as drug dealing, could be covered in more depth. There's a reference to narcotics and to Massino discouraging the trade, but that's not really satisfactory.

There are some patches of writing that are less than polished, with words repeated from one sentence to another. There is also a reference to 'Joe Crazy' Gallo that I haven't seen before - it's usually 'Crazy Joe' - and I wonder if this is correct.

I read The Last Godfather in a couple of days and so it's certainy easy reading, but I didn't get much more than I got from other books such as Selwyn Raab's 'Five Families'.

The wording on the cover is somewhat misleading - yes, Massino 'broke his silence', but we don't hear much about that here, apart from some brief comments at the end. It's not as if he was interviewed for the book. Now that would be something worth reading.

if your looking for an in depth look into the life of joey massino then this book not of much use, instead it briefly looks at probably the most significante parts of his life. it does skip alot but is still a good book to read.
