    An excellent, but difficult book for me to read because of the impact on my family. However this deeply personal account from my Mother provides a terrifying and tragic in-sight into the sometimes glamorized world of organized crime and reveals the treachery and ugliness that really exists and how it can impact the innocent.

    This book really highlights the terror ordinary people living their ordinary lives can be embroiled in through no fault of their own. I felt every emotion possible whilst reading it, and once started had to finish it. A fascinating account of a terrible time and really brings it home that these awful things did happen to people who had played no part in the nightmare world of the Mafia. A well written read and thoroughly recommended. Enjoyed every page.

    Thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. It provides a genuine insight to the corruption and crime that existed in Chicago and how this affected the lives of ordinary people. The author invites you into her world and shares all the agonising experiences that shaped her family. Highly recommended.
