reviewed on + 66 more book reviews


Had want to read this book for awhile now as I'm really interested in history as well as Mob/Mafia related history. This book details some of the life of Minneapolis' own Augie Ratner.

Augie opened up his own speakeasy and was really adored by the people and gang members that were patrons of it. Augie was well liked and trusted which allowed him to maintain this business. During those times he encountered some of the most dangerous men in the business, but went unscathed, again because he could be trusted.

Being from Minnesota, I enjoyed reading about Augie and the mob history here in the Twin Cities, but you don't have to be from here, to enjoy this one. I definitely recommend this one.
