This isn't "just another mob story." It's a suspenseful, exciting, and entertaining account of one of the greatest scams to hit Las Vegas...a scam that has never been exposed before, and one that changed history and gambling laws across America forever! Through the eyes of the author, who grew up in that world, and the words of his Godfather, an underboss who told his story before he died, The Boss Always Sits in the Back details the demise of the mobsters who ran northern New Jersey.

This is a story about the Mob, Italians, Vegas, Jersey and Gambling to name a few, which happen to be some of my favorite things. Living in the area of Jersey where the book takes place Jon is right on about all the little tidbits and facts which give the listener a sense of being right there. Not being an avid reader I purchased a copy and read it anyway and when it came to Audible I ordered it right away and listened to it again. I have recommended this book to my friends and family and all of them came back to thank me for telling them about "The Boss". Come on you have to listen to this book to find out why; "The Boss Always Sits In The Back" and why Jon took the letter "h" out of his name. In my opinion it is definitely a good read/listen and I highly recommended it.
