    1 thought on “Accardo: The Genuine Godfather”

    1. Some nice stories, interesting facts. Told from the perspective of the Hoover FBI. Lots of talk, very little in the way of results. The author takes far too much credit for far too little action. But not a bad read.

    2. Once again Bill Roemer spends half the book talking about himself and his fellow workers at the FBI. Still a really good book.

    3. Any man that is nicknamed Joe Batters because he beat two men to death with a baseball bat is probably not the sort of man you want to mess with. Add to the fact that he got his monicker from Al Capone – the most notorious Mafioso of them all – only adds fuel to fire that this is one vicious gangster.And who else better to tell his story than the one man who tried for years – yet never succeeded – to bring Tony Accardo to justice than former FBI Agent William F. Roemer, Jr. Whilst the li [...]

    4. Again, this is a difficult read because the author is an F.B.I. agent. Though, is a detailed account on one of the least heard of and most powerful mafia bosses to ever live. A man who ruled in front of and behind the scenes of the Chicago outfit for decades without a major scrape from the law. Anthony Accardo started as Al Capone's driver/bodyguard and was an influential figure within the Chicago mafia into the 1980's. A little-known, yet fascinating character in the mythology of the mob.

    5. One of the best books i've ever had the pleasure to read.Maybe even the best.The book brings you into a sometimes violent world.With a true life GodFather with absolute power.Who once was a bodyguard for Al Capone and went up in the ranks.Who believed in his on brand honor and respect.And who was lucky enough to never stay in jail over night.

    6. The only book written about one of the most successful godfathers in history. Roemer was a hard-as-nails FBI agent who hated his opponents; but developed respect, and maybe admiration, for Accardo.
