If you want to learn more about the seedy dealings of the main character - Lucas and also delve into 30 years of New York's criminal history you must pick up the book by Mark Jacobson.

“[The] riveting account of Lucas’ rise and fall is reason enough to pick up the book, but Jacobson’s other stories, spanning 30 years of NYC history, offer gripping reading as well. Whether covering the high life or lowlifes, Jacobson boasts a novelistic eye and muscular prose in the tradition of urban chroniclers like Joseph Mitchell, A.J. Liebling, and Pete Hamill.
