This is Collins’s third book about Michael Satariano, released a couple of years ago. The first two, ROAD TO PERDITION and ROAD TO PURGATORY, were dark, bloody masterpieces. Both were made into movies. Though this one is not of the same caliber, it's entertaining, as most Mafia-related books are. Michael, now a middle-aged casino manager in Reno, refuses Sam Giancana's request to kill a rival gangster. He's framed for the murder anyhow. Narrator Yuri Rasovsky is a bit off his mark. He reads too slowly, and often his voice cracks when it shouldn't. Nonetheless, his performance doesn't get in the way of the story. And his accents are wholly believable.
