    "I LOVE wiseguy stories... This one was pretty good"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Sure... It was an easy story to digest... like an episode of the Sopranos... only longer. Very enjoyable... but predictable for most of the way. Good guy gets sucked in... becomes a bad guy... catches a case of conscience... becomes a good guy again... gets the girl! But don't get me wrong... there are a couple of surprises that make you feel real good.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Somewhat... Like I said, it was a predictable story line. What I enjoyed most was the way the characters were presented by the narrator... with the different voices and accents. It was like listening to a radio play... which is the way I like my audiobooks to sound. Don't just read me a story... act it out!


    What does A. T. Al Benelli bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I just said above... but again, I like to feel like I'm listening to a play... or the soundtrack from a movie. The different voices and accents are very helpful in creating the "picture" of the characters in my mind. I bought this book partly because it was narrated by Al Benelli. I've listened to almost every book he's done... for the reasons mentioned above. He's done a couple of wiseguy-like stories.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    If you owe these guys money... there's no "Fresh Start Initiative".


    Any additional comments?

    A good book to take to the beach...
