Gangland is a standard story of the Chicago mob in its waning days beginning in the 1970s. While some of the characters are real people, others have been created for this book. I spent a lot of time on Wikipedia trying to separate the truth from the fiction.

Overall, I was disappointed by Gangland but perhaps I expected too much from the author of The Town. The plot is nothing new and was repetitive. Hopefully, the inevitable movie will be better. 3 stars.

Thanks to Grand Central Publishing and NetGalley for a digital review copy of the book.
