But the twenty-ninth contract hit Joey has taken on (without a conviction) turns out to be a lot more complicated than it first appears. As recounted in Joey's patented matter-of-fact, regular-guy tone, the target, a low-level numbers "controller," turns out to be an old acquaintance from the neighborhood, the client is a man who once tried to have Joey hit, and there are enough twists and double-backs not to mention fascinatingly credible mob details and color to keep Soprano fans up all night. -- a true-crime classic."---any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
