waste of a life waste of other peoples lives
on 9 July 2012
Not as good as I thought it would be
Bought it on the pretext of a film being made from the book
Most of the stories are a tad shallow
Undoubtedly the guy was a hard working crim, and I got the feeling he could have been quite successful in a more normal life.Outside the influence of the Mob had he been introduced to the right people at the right time.
Such is the hand life dishes out
Immediately went to the Wikipedia page which actually paints a more interesting story
The book professes he turned in to a successful business man in a nice little mansion
The truth is he was addicted to crime, drugs and alcohol. Died before his time and continued to the end to live life as a petty thief . Eventually getting kicked out the witness protection program
How he then never got bumped off after that I fail to comprehend .
