Mafia ongoing,and on,and on and on.....................
on 30 March 2014
I have really enjoyed JD's previous two books an was waiting till I could get my hands on a paperback version.
Just arrived and just finished it. At almost 500 pages it is a bit of a slog. Gone has the pacey narrative and it is just a meander through killing after killing, after assassination after extortion. Interesting if this had not been covered in the previous books in the series, but a bit samey through out. Characters are explored, but it just seems like a series of mafia fables, albeit no doubt true. For my money it could have lost at least 200 pages and have been a much punchier read.
