Author Loses Focus
on July 13, 2011
This book fails to truly focus on Charles Carneglia, but more so on everyone else even remotely associated with him.
The author, Anthony DeStefano, stumbles and bumbles through the whole book vainly attempting to tie numerous assorted characters together in an effort to make a story out of some relatively unknown mafia killer.
He waxes and wanes from one incident to another trying to bring Carneglia out of obscurity and into the limelight to reveal to the reader what a bad guy he really was.
As DeStefano rambles through the book he trips over himself by repeating almost word for word, descriptions and tales of events, characters and boring court cases that he had already detailed in previous chapters.
I was expecting this book to be on the order of something like "The Iceman" (Richard Kuklinski), but it doesn't even come close.
