Publisher's Summary

Orphaned and homeless in New York City at 14 years old in 2009, Carlo Juliano lived on the streets to survive until a local crime family boss, Johnny Toracio, gave him a job, his own place to live, and mentored him into a life as a gangster. For the next few years, Carlo flourished on the streets of New York befriending leaders of construction scams, art theft rings, drug cartels, biker gangs, extortion rackets, gambling, and cybercrime.

In 2015, a series of events ignited a treacherous power struggle for control of New York City's underworld.

Wow great voice!

Would you consider the audio edition of Ticket Man: Inside the Criminal Underworld of New York City to be better than the print version?

A book audio is new for me. My first impression is it's telling a wonderful story with enthusiasm. The voice has a little New York accent and switches from a 14 year old boy to the main character so well. I had it on while driving a two hour ride and the trip flew by. I tried to imagine what the characters look like, and wanted to hear it till it finishes.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Ticket Man: Inside the Criminal Underworld of New York City?

The accent and enthusiasm in his voice.

What about Steve Stansell’s performance did you like?

He's excellent!

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

Pursuit of a dangerous life always ends bad Except........

Any additional comments?

Love the book and would love to see it as a movie. Sean Penn plays Juliano and Jack Nicholson plays Johnny.
