5.0 out of 5 stars A lie is half way around the world while the truth is still tying it's laces..., 1 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Valachi Papers (Paperback)
There's no doubt in my mind that Valachi perhaps 'fabricated' some of the stories he tells in this book, but hey, isn't that what the mob is all about?

One of the most in depth and interesting books I've ever read on the American Mafia. Peter Maas hits all the points and gets answers from nearly every aspect of mob-life that we've been curious about in such a way that you almost forget that what you're reading is mostly true.

An absolute page turner, it left me reeling at the end at how one man can be so brazen and it has left me longing to book another flight to New York and visit some of the places Valachi talks about.

I don't think there will ever be another detailed story of Mafia life such as this one.
