I find Anthony Spilotro and interesting figure in mob history and this book had some good information but it didn t do it for meRoemer was an FBI agent assigned to the Chicago office in the 1960s and 1970s As a result he was familiar with Spilotro long before the latter went on to infamy as the Outfit s top man in Las Vegas in the 1970s As such Roemer provides a lot of good behind the scenes information about investigating organized crime at this time It was especially intriguing to read about how FBI agents perceive informantsThat being said Roemer is not a good writer He is rambly and repetitive and loves to talk about how awesome he is and is fond of name dropping than any other writer I have ever read Even stranger he name drops people who are not famous and never bothers to explain who they are He also really seems to have an ax to grind with Spilotro based on their handful of personal encounters I don t blame him for not liking someone who had a reputation as an unhinged psychopath But the way he goes about it is childish and unprofessional everything from height jokes to odd stories that are meant to make him look awesome as he humiliates Spilotro but just make him look lame By the end I was rooting for Spilotro out of spiteMy favorite scene was the part where Roemer and Spilotro have a snark off and Spilotro tells him that his house is crappy This evidently really bothered Roemer because decades later he seemed to still be fuming about it Nevertheless Roemer tries really hard to make this seem like a battle of wills that he won but it still reads like he just got owned in the middle class middle aged suburban version of a grade school fight

Some good details poorly writtenby a writer that thinks too highly of himselfThis book is about mafia enforcer and hitman Tony Spilotro that was immortalized as Nicky Santoro played by Joe Pesci in Casino it is written by an FBI agent that had a number of run ins with Spilotro thru out the yearsWhile Spilotro is by all accounts accurately described in the book and Roemer seems to have a real dislike for the subject of this book but on the other hand the author comes across as having such a high impression of himself that it grows tiresome very uickly the arrogance just drips off the page and while he seems to genuinely dislike Spilotro there are a half dozen other mobsters mentioned in the book that he apparently finds to be nice guysand I recall at least 3 or 4 cases of police and FBI agents that turned to crime and got arrested themselves and the author brushes this off with a simple I guess the stress just got to them all I can say is that the author seems to be a weird judge of character
