Full Title: DEADLY ASSOCIATES: A True Story of Murder, Survival, and Bringing Down the Chicago Mob by Matthias McCarn, Emma Seifert, Joe Seifert, Nick Seifert
Bringing down the mob, isn't just black and white.
McCarn, Seifert, Seifert, Seifert writes about the Chicago Mob in DEADLY ASSOCIATES: A True Story of Murder, Survival, and Bringing Down the Chicago Mob. I've read true crime titles about mob connections before, and though there are similarities, I think the location and how the mob is "run" is affected by what is done and not done. Take a step back to the 60s and 70s in Chicago. Danny Seifert is determined to succeed his father, especially with the thought of money and power that is just in his reach. Danny finally sees the "life" without blinders, where it's a world of murder, secrets, and retaliation. Danny decides in order to protect his family, to detach his loyalty to the mob, and cooperate with the feds. Eventually, Danny's sons are now grown, and seek retribution. It's an interesting story of the rise and fall of the mob, and how and where the Seifert family fall in line. This book was written very well. Sometimes the line between loyalty and freedom is death. DEADLY ASSOCIATES: A True Story of Murder, Survival, and Bringing Down the Chicago Mob is a definite recommendation by Amy's Bookshelf Reviews.
