Publisher's Summary

Linda Scarpa had the best toys, the nicest clothes, and a close-knit family. Yet her childhood was far from idyllic. Classmates avoided her; boys wouldn't date her. Eventually she learned why: They were afraid of her father.

A made man in the Colombo crime family, Gregory Scarpa, Sr., was a stone-cold killer nicknamed the "Grim Reaper." Unlike most tight-lipped mobsters, Scarpa talked business - and murder - in front of his kids. But to Linda, he was also a loving, devoted father who played video games with her for hours. In riveting detail, she reveals what it was like to grow up in the violent world of the mob and to come to grips with the truth about her father and the devastation he wrought.

    "Awful!!!!"
    Would you ever listen to anything by Linda Scarpa and Linda Rosencrance again?

    Never


    What three words best describe Elise Arsenault’s performance?

    Tried to sound like a Brooklyn gal. Was OK until she tried to do a voice for another woman character or a man.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was very disappointed in this book. The author whined on about her life. How she wasn't accepted because of her father. She didn't seem to mind have all the material things his life of crime provided.But her father was her hero in life. She worked very hard to try and convince the reader what a wonderful family man he was even though she acknowledges he killed over 50 people. Then she feels so bad when contracts AIDS because someone as wonderful as he surly doesn't deserve to suffer. Is she kidding?

    "Entertaining Story"

    A great listen, worth the time and money. Interesting Mob story. I found the cuts to flashbacks and others accounts of what was happening a bit confusing but only if I wasn't giving it 100% of my attention.

    "Couldn't wait for the ending"

    My husband & I listened to this together on a road trip. The story was interesting however seemed to drag out towards the end. We both were thinking many times, "get to the point"! Hoping this book was therapeutic for Linda and my husband wonders if she needed $$ in writing it.

    "Get the written copy....trust me!"
    What did you like best about The Mafia Hit Man's Daughter? What did you like least?

    I enjoyed hearing the story....the narrating was the worst though


    What did you like best about this story?

    the history basically


    How could the performance have been better?

    ANY other narrator....I'm sorry it was someone trying to put on a Brooklyn accent and it was the furthest thing from a Brooklyn accent...quite painful to listen to actually

    Story
    "Wish they were all like this and more!"

    Absolutely excellent book. I wish there were more books from mobsters family members as well as mobsters. This Italian sounding female narrator really makes the book here on audible. Unfortunately there are a lot of brilliant audiobooks here on this app but have a horrible narrator reading these tales in which most have to be returned. Linda told this story like a true champ and I don't look at mobsters who turned into "snitches " as snitches. More like calling them victims or defectors since they're not snitching on their friends but mafioso brutal deadly and vicious cult killers ready to dispose of their friends or family anyways.
    Going to read Sammy the Bulls daughters book next regardless of personal or paid reviews.
