Paddy Whacked By: T.J. English

This is by far my favorite book club book we have read. It was a challenging, interesting, and fascinating read on the Irish American Mob since its inception to its downfall, not too long ago. Their influence in politics and business and the outright brutality of the murders which occurred was startling to say the least! The book was amazingly well written and captivating. Slight warning to those who like quick reads: this is not one of those books. It took two weeks of dedicated reading for me to finish this book. I loved every second but it was a commitment and not the kind of book you can pick up and read/get distracted! I got so involved in the book it seemed that the world around me dissolved.
