This is a fast paced fact filled book. I was drawn in from the very beginning and was amazed at what some of these women went through. Some willingly. The author describes in detail giving the facts in a way that makes it almost like reading a novel, but not quite so that you think she's making it up. There are some dry parts, as in all things non-fiction, but with the mob it's always dangerous.
The only problem I really had with this book is that a couple of times the author seemed to be too emotionally involved. She seemed to judge some of the women, particularly the daughters who after finding out what their fathers did for a living still loved them.
I recommend this book for all interested in the mafia. And now I must go watch the Godfather movies because apparently I'm missing out.
