English, T. J., The Westies: Inside New York's Irish Mob

"Masterfully told, gracefully written…the true story of the most violent men this nation has ever seen. Al Capone would have cringed…you want to cheer at he end…The Westies will blow you away."—Edna Buchanan, author of The Corpse Had a Familiar Face

"Must reading… an investigative story about contract killers for the Mafia that will shock even the most hardened reader."—Playboy

"A disquieting look at a worthwhile subject: the frailties of justice in the big city."
