Publisher's Summary

Frank Sheeran, known as "The Irishman", waited his entire life to tell his story or at least his version of his story. The world knew him as a union official, a longtime member of the Teamsters union; he was a member of Jimmy Hoffa’s inner circle at the top of the national union. He had run-ins with the law in this position. He was charged with the murder of a rebel union member in a riot that occurred outside the Teamster’s Local Philadelphia Union Hall, but the charges were later dropped. He went to prison in the '80s after being caught on a wire instructing one of his crew to break someone’s legs and was named in Rudy Giuliani’s Mafia Commission Trial as an unindicted coconspirator and one of only two non-Italian members of the Mafia Commission.

As an old man suffering from cancer that would soon kill him, Frank Sheeran shared his story with his attorney. He told him of the things that were already known, but he shared much, much more. This audiobook explores Frank Sheeran’s confessions as a lifelong criminal with ties to some of the biggest crimes of the 20th century.

Inside this audiobook, you will find:

  • A detailed account of Frank Sheeran’s time in the army during the Second World War, where he was in combat for an astounding 411 days, with a focus on the war crimes to which he has admitted
  • A look into Sheeran’s post-war slides into a life of crime, finding himself working for the Mafia before he even knew what the Mafia was
  • Information on his time as a hit man for the Mafia and how that led him to work for Jimmy Hoffa as muscle and hit man for the powerful Teamster boss
  • Frank Sheeran’s accounts of his connections to the Bay of Pigs Invasion and the assassination of JFK
  • His confession to the murders of Crazy Joe Gallo and of his friend Jimmy Hoffa

Just what i needed

Unfortunately, Frank Sheeran had to face such a deadly disease as cancer, so he decided to “clean” the soul and tell about all his sins and it opened the character from different sides.Great book!!

give it a try.

Great book! Makes you think and be surprised. For example, the fact that you never know what awaits you in the future and how you will act when you are in the place of a hero.

Successful

I really enjoyed the background on Sheeran, particularly his pre-Mafia days. Even though the author doesn’t delve into psychology, he did an excellent job painting a thorough picture so that the reader can conjecture those things.

A great grab!

I honestly don’t have much interest in true crime stories, but this was exceptionally well-written.

Quick and interesting!!

It is written as a historical narrative full of intrigue, rather than a sensationalized movie, which happens so often with Mafia-related characters.

well done

The scenes are vivid, but not overwhelming which I worried about since much of Sheeran’s history is drenched in blood and horror.

Really amazing one

While this is truly a portrait of a horrible man, the author has done a great job of imbuing the story of the Irishman with a ton of historical facts. That aspect alone makes this a worthwhile read. If you like history and true crime, this book is a win on all fronts. Highly recommend.

This book is incredibly helpful.

This detailed account of his life focuses on his war crimes, his post-war life as he begins a life of crime in the mafia, how he became a hit-man and a powerful teamster, and finally, his confession to the murders of Jimmy Hoffa and Crazy Joe Gallo.
