- T.J. English, author of the Irish Mob Trilogy (The Westies, Paddy Whacked and Where the Bodies Were Buried)
"Billions of dollars passed each year through the West Side docks, spanning from Houston Street up to 110th Street, and thousands of people worked there, loading and unloading trucks and cargo ships from around the world. And one man was at the center of it all: Eddie McGrath, an Irish mob chief and mastermind of dirty money."
"Dock Boss is a fascinating and well-researched look at one of the most influential Irish mobsters of the 20th century. Eddie McGrath was not only the king of the New York waterfront, but a street-smart Irish mobster who stayed one step ahead of the law and his enemies. Neil G. Clark brings to life McGrath's story with clear prose and a sharp eye for detail."
"In his new book, Dock Boss, author Neil G. Clark takes his readers inside the violent world of the New York City waterfront and the man who controlled it. It isn't a pretty world, but it was Eddie McGrath's world. It's a story that needed telling and one you don't want to miss."
"True crime history fans will find Dock Boss: Eddie McGrath and the West Side Waterfront a gripping saga of organized crime that combines the biography of Eddie McGrath with the rise of mob activities in the 1930s. The story reads with the drama and action of fiction, but all events come from real life."
"[...] a thrilling read about a dock boss who pulled strings from the shadows, avoiding the limelight -- and would have been only a footnote in the annals of gangster lore if not for Clark's masterful exposé."
