About this product
- DescriptionIn Brownsville, Brooklyn, 1930, life is tough, sometimes, it's murder. Jewish gangster isn't a term that gets bandied around much in the modern world. But back when the Dodgers played in the East and liquorice cost a penny a bag, Brooklyn corners were lousy with Semitic braves looking for adventure and a ticket out of the breadline - and ne more so than in Brownsville. Among the smart-alec kids looking for an out are Allie Tanennbaum and Abe Reles. They join up with Louis Lepke Buchalter as he organises scores of young hoods into the deadliest hit operation in Mafia history. Murder, Inc. Life is hard, but it's what you make of it - and Allie and Abe have made the most they can. Out of the streets and tenements of East New York and into the high life, with money, molls and the tag of most dangerous man in America hanging from their tailored suits and patent leather shoes. A good life. And one that has a habit of turning sour. When you are in that deep, it's only a matter of time before you sell your best friends up the river...
