I was (no pun intended) blown away by Mob Cops. Smith's writing, pace, and character development makes the book transcends the genre. The book provides an amazing, in depth portrait of humanity (granted, in many cases, of its lowest form), with stunning detail, arch humor, and behind the scenes knowledge of the inner workings of the mob, NYPD, and FBI/5(9).

The book is well written and larded with interesting anecdotes and voices. Eppolito's mother provides entertaining insight into a Mob family's life from a woman's point of view. What's missing is Louie Eppolito's shadow life/5(24). The book is even more interesting in light that he was later convicted in court of murdering several people on behalf of the mob.

Since the indictments came twenty years after this book, and just after he retired from the NYPD, Eppolito does not send much time discussing the mob in this book/5. Smith's presentation is at times confusing; and he ends the book before the Mafia Cops Story ends, so there is a cliff-hanger.

Smith is not too clear as to his sources. The result is that parts of the book appear to be biased and unbalanced. Lou Eppolito was the son of a mafioso. Nevertheless he pursued a career as a police officer/5. Mob Cops book book was really well written and beautifully narrated.

it Dives deep into the corrupt lives of both Mafia cops. It also does a good job describing the other players involved and it really sucks you into the story. I give this book five stars.
