This was a captivating book, written as a chronicle. It's not for everybody, but if you have an interest in organized crime and how it's members live, you cannot put the book down.

This book made me think about how different life is for other people especially people who kill other people . It made me think how easily it may have been very different for me or anyone, with a few changes to the environment of the early years. And finally, it made me alot more careful around the people you see everyday - in cars, stores and on the street. For some of them, I'm very careful not to do anything that might piss them off.

Philip Carlo's writing reads like fiction, which is great in this biography of mafia contract killer, Richard Kuklinski. While the level of everyday detail leads the reader to wonder how much of it is actual fact and how much of it is embellished for the reader's experience-- can you really remember every dish that was served for Christmas in 1971 -- it is nevertheless an intriguing voyage into the mafia world. A violent read with a shocking afterword. One of Carlo's best.
