Tod Goldberg, Gangsters Dont Die
(Counterpoint)

“As ever, Goldberg is adept at writing about mob hits, explosions, corpses and other cases of criminal bad news with a smirking, noirish tone. But he writes with sensitivity too, from painterly depictions of the Palm Desert and Salton Sea to riffs on the Talmud that suggest Cohen’s faith isn’t entirely a put-on.”
–Mark Athitakis, Los Angeles Times
