Ted's Review said:
I was very disappointed in this book. Neal Karlen is a great writer, but this book is poorly written. Karlen treats the Jewish gangsters as if the killing and maiming were just cute stunts by lovable Jews. As someone who is Jewish, I find this offensive. Your fondness for either your uncle Augie, or the fact that he passed on these "secrets" to you has clouded your judgement, Neal. And the constant use of Yiddish, where it adds no value, is insulting too. Does this make you feel more Jewish? The story you had to tell was an excellent one and could have made for great reading. You blew it, Bubbe. This book is a 2 on a scale from 1 to 10. At best.
