I don’t know how to review this book. I loved the story or stories behind the book. Blackie the gangster, cop, and family man all rolled into one person with a whole lot of messed up. I met David Steece at a book signing. We had a wonderful conversation about his life and children. He was a very nice man to talk to. The book paints a very different picture of a man struggling to raise five daughters, using women as needed, and not sure what side of the law he wants to be on. I had a hard time following what was going on in the main story with all of the flashbacks. It took me longer than expected to read this book because I found myself getting lost. I would have to go back several pages just to figure out what the main story was. With all that said, I really did like all the flashbacks. My favorite flashback was about his daughter and vacuuming the water out of the bathtub. This book was funny, entertaining, and a good book. I as a mother and a woman had issues with the treatment of women in this book but what did I expect from a gangster?
