I grew up in Montréal on rue Jeanne Mance. I had friends in Griffintown and Goose Village and "The Point." As a boy I boxed a little there in a boys club sometimes.
Thankfully, I never did become one of the 'bad' guys but I did know one of the people in the book who was a very 'Bad Guy' and wound up dead stuffed in the back of his car as D'Arcy O'connor says. I 'knew' that guy because he became my next door neighbour on the south shore before he was murdered.
Matter of fact the QPF hauled me in to talk a bit about that neighbour who they kept arresting because I got in his face for killing my family dog.They told me who he was and to stop 'bothering' him. LOL Bizarre is all I can say about mobsters and O'Connor certainly displays every facet of that life.
The book is very well written, brought me some memories, and my friend John Westlake told me to buy that book and I'm not sorry I did that.
It is an extremely interesting and factual story that didn't take me long to read because it is that interesting I couldn't put it down.
