The old age confession and biography given to an experienced interrogator and lawyer by "The Irishman" on his life before WW2 , during the war and then as a racketeer culminating being the muscle for Jimmy Hoffa and ultimately being the trigger man at his execution. In addition Frank confesses to the murder of Joey Gallo as well as a small part in "Dallas". The book is well written with a good pace that does a solid job of humanizing Frank Sheerhan . The stories are fascinating though the link to "Dallas" is pretty tenuous and it is hard to understand why the mob would need to fly guns from the northeast to Dallas. I would think there would be plenty of weapons available in Texas. Notwithstanding it is an excellent book to read if you are interested in Mob history.
