Reviews

New York Times review

… the snappiest of the genre … the gamey history is punchily put together…”

 

“Unlike Hollywood which has added a patina of glamour to the Mob of decades ago — Loyalty and Betrayal: The Story of the American Mob, does nothing to mask the murderers and their grisly violence. There are blood and guts, photos of the players, and elegant accompanying essays by New York Daily News columnist Sidney Zion. Mob won’t necessarily lead you to a better understanding of the workings of the underworld, but it drives home its horror. B+”
