    This is an incredible book If you are interested in the mob in even a marginal way, you need to read this book Corbitt has led a hell of a life, and he s got an irresistible voice He tells all in this book, and he names names I m in awe of this book, especially since a lot of it happened around where I live It s hard to believe that a place like Willow Springs was so corrupt, but after reading Corbitt s account, it s undeniable It s amazing how one guy born in poverty can become a big shot mobst [...]

    Growing up poor and angry, Michael Corbitt fought his way up the ranks of greasers and street gangs until he attracted the attention of Chicago crime boss Sam Giancana, who placed him on the Willow Springs, Illinois, police force By the time Corbitt was appointed chief of police, he d also moved up the Outfit s ranks and was living the high life of a respected mobster.Corbitt s luck turned when he was indicted on charges of racketeering and conspiracy to commit murder Although there was a mob co [...]

    Excellent expose on organized crime we got to where we are today and the effect organize crime hands on our daily lives I highly recommend this book for people wanting to get an overall view of organized crime, how it began, etc The history of organized crime is fascinating and not what most of us would think I m not condoning what these people do, by any means, but organized crime arose out of necessity, for the most part Things are much different today and there s very little excuse for street [...]

    I never finished reading this book I didn t like the character.Mike Corbitt was a young kid growing up in Chicago He was bullied in school so he learned how to fight He saw wise guys making lots of money and wanted some of that action Sam Giancana helped he join the Outfit Then, Sam Giancana suggested okay, he really doesn t make suggestions that he join the police force He did He later became the Chief of Police of a small town near Chicago and during this entire time was steal part of the Outf [...]

    At the end of this book, the prosecutor who put Michael Corbitt away said, the mystery is how a just God allows people like Michael Corbitt to crawl on the face of the earth The prosecutor goes on to call Corbitt a prostitute with a badge, which seems too kind as well, actually So it s tough to get beyond the fact of reading the memoirs and justifications I didn t shoot her, I just dumped the body in the canal of such an individual He was a corrupt cop from the word go, installed by the mob to d [...]

    Very interesting book Not just on organized crime itself, but on it s connection to the U.S government, which was kind of surprising on one hand, but on the other hand, not Totally reinforces my theories on a number of deaths that were ruled suicide most certainly on the JFK assasination The book is a few years old, I would love to know a current update on the characters in the book who were still around when the book came out, what Michael Corbitt is up to these days.

    Great book about the Chicago mob and how corrupt the police force was in the 50 s and 60 s This book gives great insight on looked over mobster Hy Larner Everyone focuses on Tony Accardo and Sam Giancana but Hy Larner was the true genius behind the coin operated and gambling empire in Chicago and around the world This is one of the few books that the author dosen t paint himself to be an angel.

    Although I did not find Michael Corbitt to be a likable person, his tale of the Chicago Outfit corruption, political corruption and name dropping, made for very interesting reading indeed I m pretty sure the goings on of the mob are continuing in much the same way as are their connections to police, politicians, heads of countries, etc The names and faces may change, but the money making schemes will always continue.

    I have always been fascinated by all things related to the Chicago Mob and Sam Giancana,this book is top notch all the way What a great ride behind the scenes of connected life during and after Giancana s rule in Chicago,told by one of the admitted most corrupt cops of the era

    I read this book years ago when my sister first moved to Willow Springs IL It s about the Chief of Police of Willow Springs and his connections to the mob It s good read if you like local true crime stories.

    This book is a work of non fiction Although it had some interesting information it can t help but make one angry that a police officer, one sworn to protect and serve, was also a mobster.

    This was a great book about the mob Its an eye opener to how much influence they have had over our country, our countries government, foreign relations and even wars.
