KIRKUS REVIEW

Gotta get this guy Breslin. He's a Character see... a capital C Character and does he do a number on us! Like who gave him the inside Info about Baccala and Kid Sally and Big Mama and Big Jell and Beppo and the night of the rub out when we missed the pigeon but accidentally ran over him instead; or the great six day bicycle race when all the odds were wrong... that was some organization but anyway what about that last business when Kid Sally tried to wipe Baccala With the wrong ammunition. And remember that little guy Mario who come over from the old country to be an artist? The one who broke everybody up in the bicycle race? Well they're all in this book see by this Character who somebody told me was once running for Mayor or something and must have a pipeline to Little Italy. Like Kid Sally says it's ""Infuckincredible"" and I gotta admit it's kind of funny but who wants to be laughed at. And it's gonna make a movie yet! He's ruined our Rep! At least people like J. Edgar Hoover get theirs too. But gotta get this guy Breslin.
