Using the career (?) of real life gangster Joey Gallo as a stepping off point, Mr. Breslin spins a tale of lunacy that involves guns, bombs, lions, bike races, modern art, politics and power plays. He creates a crew of the most inept gangsters who ever shot themselves in their collective feet.
I read this book years ago when it first came out. I liked it then, I love it now.
Each chapter is like following a lighted fuse to get to the explosion. There are lots of funny surprises and a hoot of a finish.
By the way, it was made into a movie. Many good actors appear but it never takes flight.
Give yourself a few good laughs. Read "The Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight".
I must have recommended it to my friends several times.
