Once again, Winslow does not disappoint! This story starts off like a slow burn. Frank Machianno runs a bait shop and has a lot on his plate. It's not easy being him! Then, his past catches up with him, and the book takes off like wildfire! Lots of action, lots of mob stuff, and some heavy duty killing! And a good ending, with an even better epilogue! I can't believe I got this for a $1! ( )

Review for audiobook ~ 3 stars story ♫ 3 stars narration. I liked it well enough. It was so hard to keep up with who was who with all the flashbacks. Maybe if I was reading the book instead of an audiobook, I could have managed better... at least I could flip back and forth so I could remember these people, but I couldn't. So, a lot of the audiobook, I struggled.
The narration didn't really do it for me either. I feel generous with 3 stars. To me, he didn't sound anything like an older mob guy.
So, 3 stars all the way around. ( )

Questo potrebbe essere uno dei rari casi in cui il film tratto dal libro sarà migliore di quest'ultimo - sembra davvero scritto per De Niro. Il resto è il solito visto, con sovrabbondanza di omicidi. La trama, necessariamente scontata. I personaggi, i ben noti "bravi ragazzi". Ellroy, che in 4^ di copertina tesse le lodi di questa storia, un patacca. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0307277666, Paperback)

From the bestselling author of Savages (now an Oliver Stone film).

Frankie Machianno, a hard-working entrepreneur, passionate lover, part-time surf bum, and full-time dad, is a widely recognized pillar of his waterfront community. He is also a retired hit man. Once better known as Frankie Machine, he was a brutally efficient killer. Now someone from his past wants him dead, and after a botched attempt on his life, Frankie sets out to find his potential killers. However, the list of suspects is longer than the California coastline. With the mob on his heels and the cops on his tail, Frankie hatches a plan to protect his family, save his life, and escape the mob forever. Then things get really complicated.
