If this book had been around 5 years ago, when I first started reading about organised crime, I could have avoided many titles that used fabricated, exaggerated and/or simply recycled information. As it is, I have read dozens of historic accounts concerning the Italian-American crime groups (Mafia, La Cosa Nostra) and Reppetto's book still informed me of facts and events I had not yet read.
Its well written without becoming too scholarly and stuffy but, at the same time, it does not sacrifice truth in aid of a better story. A real pleasure to read!
If your just starting to read about the mob then this is a God send! It will provide an invaluable all-round knowledge on the subject and leave you with an understanding what I had to read many books before attaining.
If your someone who has read several mob books then this is still a great book to read. It probably will have events that you did not know of and, if not, its a great collection of all the most important happenings. Wall to wall major events within the world of LCN.
I'd reccomend it to anyone with an interest in Italian-American organised crime and cannot emphasize enough how much I enjoyed it.
A 'must own' for any Mafia fan.
