As with most Joe Bruno books, this is fairly short but contains all the facts and details of the subjects life. I’ve read several of Bruno’s books and they are all great value and very entertaining – straight into the story with no boring intros etc. Jimmy Fratianno is certainly an interesting character and was much higher in the mob than I originally thought. He was a loan shark, an extortionist, a bookmaker and a stone cold killer. He had connections with all the top guys across America from New York to Hollywood and Vegas. He was, at the time he turned, the highest ranking Mafioso ever to turn informant, and all because he got too big for certain higher ups in the organisation who decided they were going to put him out of business with a bullet. Jimmy vowed vengeance and boy did he get it. He started singing and they started shaking!!! This brief insight into his life lead me to buy ‘The Last Mafioso’ written by Ovid Demaris and Jimmy himself which I would thoroughly recommend.
