A brilliant account of the mob's relationship with Batista during the last years of his government. Well-written, well researched and never becomes stale or overly academic. If you have any interest in Cuban history, or the American mob, this book is highly recommended.
This is a highly readable, well-researched and entertaining biography on the American Mob in Havana. I had no interest in this sort of true crime, but the author's style and method of tying conversations, memories, and archive material was so fantastic it was almost as good as living through it myself. But without bullets and bombs.
I found the end notes incredibly helpful and interesting, too! Highly recommended.
