Format: Paperback
Overall a good book to read, although not very detailed about the individual 'Hits', it does offer a good amount of background leading up to the murders and a great overview of the murder itself.

The book would somewhat apeal to individuals looking for a quick introduction and overview of some of the more well known organized crime hits, but not overly useful for those after a more in depth exploration of mafia crime/murders.

The rating system is an idea which i enjoyed, i have not seen this before in any other books and it is a very inovative way to compare the 'quality' of the 'hits' and their resaulting effects.
Although on some i do not entirely agree with the ratings given, the rating system is explained at the start and allows the reader to conclude his/her own 'hit' score for the murders.

So in a nutshell, a great book. Writing style is ok, as stated by another reviewer "The writing is not without defect" and once you get around that, the book with its ratings system is an enjoyable read and something different in organized crime writings.

This book fills in a lot of details that were left out of the documentary video of the same name which I saw on cable. The author really knows his stuff.
