“The Life We Chose is a rip-roaring tear through the Mob's heyday in America. Peppered with larger-than-life names like Jimmy Hoffa and Marlon Brando, Michael Jackson and Suge Knight, Crazy Joe Gallo and John Gotti, The Life We Chose is spellbinding. True-crime writing at its very best.”

Takedown: The Fall of the Last Mafia Empire
