Impossible to like this man,
This review is from: Hit 'Em Hard: Jack Spot, King of the Underworld (Hardcover)
The book is interesting but does lack style, but perhaps he wants it to read like a cheap thriller. It is hard to write a book about someone it is so difficult to like. Jack Spot seems to have had no endearing qualities. His fall from power shows how this his empire was. It all seems to have fallen apart when he married and lost his concentration on the business while others moved into his territory plus changes in betting law made his rackets superfluous.
It is worth reading for anyone who likes that era. His role in the Battle of Cable St is disputed. Did he really have a jail sentence for his part? Certainly a hard character. Most of us would not want to have met him.
