Quite an interesting research for a book — for a professor to undertake to interview Jewish mobsters and their families. This is what makes But He Was Good to His Mother as humorous and unique as it is, making it a worthwhile read to people in all different walks of life. Material for the book came from FBI files, newspapers, books as well as familial influences. You actually feel like you're watching a gangster movie as the tales in this book unfold. 'More than twenty shots ricocheted around the room, six of them slamming into Masseria. He slumped, face down, on the table. The killing took less than a minute. Luciano left the restaurant before the police arrived and the police could find no witnesses to the shooting.'
