    Karen Gravano is the daughter of Sammy “the Bull” Gravano, once one of the mafia's most feared hit men. With 19 confessed murders, the former Gambino Crime Family underboss - and John Gotti’s right-hand man - is the highest ranking gangster ever to turn State’s evidence and testify against members of his high-profile crime family. But to Karen, Sammy Gravano was a sometimes elusive but always loving father figure. He was ever-present at the head of the dinner table.

    Story

    While I don't doubt the validity of the story itself, I don't think Karen wrote it at all. the narration sounds like she is reading it for the first time. Her style of reading is choppy and detracts from the flow of the story. It is clear she is not reading using punctuation with odd pauses where there aren't periods and breathless periods of would-be run ons. The story is interesting but I wish I had skipped this one in audio format and just read the book. Usually I find autobiographies better when the writer reads them aloud, but that is certainly not the case with this one.
