    Paperback ¶ Dock Boss PDF º dock epub, boss epub, Dock Boss MOBIA fascinating read that lures you in from page 1 This well researched book weaves the stories of the McGrath Dunn mob into one compelling narrative that exposes some of the most brutal tales of New York's west side waterfront The stories were both shocking and almost disturbingly comical as Clark explored the corruption and deceit that riddled the port thanks to these gangsters I appreciated the depth and details included by Clark that really brought the stories to life the citations included in the back of the book really highlight all the research that went into this His writing style and the short chapters for me were a win because they kept me engaged and always turning the page I would definitely recommend this book to those interested in true crime and those who love a good murder story too
