In Tampa in 1955, a time of Cuban neighborhoods and cigar factories, Sicilian and Cuban gangsters competed to control the city's illicit activities. One of the most colorful characters was Charlie Wall, a crime boss and political operative. His assassination by a pair of thugs is the starting point of this novel, closely based on fact. William Dufris gives some figures slight vocal characterizations, which help identify characters in passages of extended dialogue. At the close of the book there are fascinating interviews with the author, the first reporter on the murder scene, a sheriff's officer at the time, and the police interview with the prime suspect, "Scarface" Johnny Rivera. These added features are a true bonus. R.G. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/ MAY 07]
