About the Author
--This text refers to the audioCD edition.
''The Mob takes retribution seriously. And it has a long memory and they will find an opportunity, if possible, and they will kill Michael Blutrich.'' --Art Leach, former federal prosecutor and chief of the Organized Crime Task Force
''Scores is a compelling true crime book that takes readers on a wild ride. This book has it all mobsters, strippers, extortion, G-men, and one unlikely FBI informant. Michael Blutrich has told a riveting tale that will keep reader entertained and enthralled.'' --Miles Corwin, author of Homicide Special
''In Scores, we finally have the definitive insider memoir of the club that changed New York City nightlife forever. The book is a blockbuster ride revealing secrets held close since the 1990s.'' --Harvey Osher, Scores owner, 1998-2008
''Michael's story is a riveting window into the secret world of FBI undercover cooperation by a prominent NYC lawyer against the Mafia. As Michael's lawyer, I was present for many of the events he describes, and, unbelievable as it may seem, his story is true. His case is like no other I've encountered in my 40-year career, and his book will become an instant classic. Even knowing how it would end, I couldn't put the book down until the final page.'' --Morris ''Sandy'' Weinberg, Jr., Partner, Zuckerman Spaeder LLP, Tampa, FL, Former AUSA in the Southern District of New York, Chair-elect of the ABA Criminal Justice Section
''Michael Blutrich, a smart lawyer from Brooklyn, was feeling pretty good when his new Upper East Side strip club became a must-visit destination for everyone from Leonardo Di Caprio to Donald Trump. Then Blutrich found out he had partners he hadn't known about: John Gotti's crime family. An irrepressible wiseacre, Blutrich's first thought was that he'd seen nothing about that in the lease. Then a couple of hoods whacked two employees and things got very real, very fast. Soon, Blutrich became the least likely undercover agent the FBI ever had, wearing a wire against Gotham's biggest gangsters. But he kept his eyes open and his sense of humor and the result is this great read.'' --Tom Robbins, investigative reporter and coauthor of Mob Boss --This text refers to the audioCD edition.

Personally I would have preferred more of Scores. But this is more a Mafia book which was slightly tedious. Don't get me wrong. I read and recommend. But know what you are buying.
Top international reviews
Blutrich wonderfully creates a stunning backdrop for his unprecedented government co-operation, making the high-steaks nature of his involvement self-evident without being precocious.
Throughout, Blutrich's acerbic and cutting humour makes even the most ridiculous and intense of situations funny to the reader, though this is not to take away from the more existential elements of the narrative where he is forced to question his own morality and fate.
Precisely edited and formulated, the book moves at rip-roaring pace which makes it difficult to put down, and no encounter or chapter is drawn out or self-indulgent.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to know more about both the inner workings of the mob, and of the mind of an individual tasked with taking them down again their will. But be braced for an emotional rollercoaster.
