Don Winslow is one of the modern crime writers who started with a series, but then shifted into more character based stand-alone novels, kind of like what Dennis Lehane and George Pelecanos have done.

The whole Mafia thing is something I infierno into straight away, I love that genre more than most others, so much so I would say one of my all time favourite books is Gangster.
Frank agrees to do the favor, principally out of respect, only to discover that he’s been set up winsslow be killed. Hands down, one of the machinf crime novels I’ve read. Don Winslow can really write, he makes what could be generic ideas in to something fresh and readable, his books are not really about the crime or the kills like most authors using the genre today but about the people and the effect the lifestyle has on them, he doesn’t revel in the brutality yet he is aware that it exists.

This book gave me a new love for mafia books. In other words, life is pretty damned good until suddenly the bad old days rear their ugly head.
