The Ballad of Danny Greene Clevelan d the 1970s A fearless Irishman boldly muscles in on the Italian American Mafia intrepid charismatic shrewd cunning and armed with a master plan to take over the rackets under the auspices of the Irish banner of which he was so fiercely proud His name is Greene his signature This book was a lot smaller than it looked from the outside; big font big spacing big margins lots of addenda at the end etc It was supposed to be the story I thought about this dude who ran an Irish mafia in Cleveland but ended up being about the Italian guys trying to kill him I never got a good idea of Danny Greene the titular Irishman I don't see how he segues into murder or how any of these criminals were out in the open enough to be doing gossipy interviews with the newspapers etc The writer of the books is a cop I think and that kind of shows It's not terribly well written but it's knowledgeable in a way that a journalist might not be And the author's own grandfather and uncles were mixed up in the mafia too and the whole thing has the ring of authenticity But it just didn't really grab meOne thing I had NO idea that car bombs were as popular at one point as they are in movies It seems like every other page there's a bomb on some guy's car I can't imagine living in a place especially in America where that went on Times have definitely changed It was pretty fun learning about this part of not so distant American history
