Reading “Five Families” by Selwyn Raab. Required reading for anyone interested in learning about the mob in America. Well written and engaging. Highly recommend.



That's sitting on my nightstand, going to get to it this summer.

I just got done with "Fade Away" another Harlan Coeben thriller(sic) with Myron Boliter getting a chance to play in the NBA. He goes undercover to find a superstar, his former rival from N.C.. Myron got his knee blown out in a practice game before he got a chance to play in the NBA, despite being a top ten pick out of Duke. He went to Harvard Law School, passed the bar, and became a sports agent. In the novels he spends a lot of time finding out the truth to heinous crimes with sports as a back drop. The are very descriptive of the Jersey, NYC area and very 20 years ago, plus, "the author has read a lot of the newspapers to get his material." My significant other's words.
