From the acclaimed author of The Town, a "masterly" epic thriller about the secret right‑hand man of one of the most infamous unprosecuted mob bosses in American history (New York Times Book Review).
In the late 1970s, The Outfit has the entire city of Chicago in its hands. Tony Accardo is its fearless leader. Nicky Passero is his loyal soldier, though no one knows he has a direct line in to the boss of bosses. When the Christmas gift Accardo got for his wife, an inscribed bracelet with gold and diamond inlay, is stolen along with other items in a jewelry heist, Nicky is charged with tracking down and returning all of the items—by whatever means necessary.
Forced into an impossible situation, Nicky must find a way to carry out Accardo's increasingly unhinged instructions and survive the battle for control of Chicago. What Accardo doesn't know: Nicky has a secret which has made his life impossible and has put him in the pocket of the FBI.
Based on the true story of Tony Accardo, the longest‑reigning mob capo in history, Gangland is a Shakespearean-esque drama of integrity, lost honor, and revenge. Gritty and action‑packed, it is the ultimate gangster tale and Chuck Hogan's most thrilling novel yet.

If you love Mob stories then Gangland by Chuck Hogan is a must read. The writer does a fantastic job of making you feel the pressure of needing to make the best decisions possible in order to survive. Make sure to buy yourself a copy of this wonderful book. Thank you to NetGalley and Grand Central Publishing for this advanced copy.
I loved this book. Classic mafia story with some unique twists. All the cloak and dagger underhanded dealings expected in a mobster story with some completely unexpected turns. Nicky Pins is a character you really learn to love a criminal that you hope can turn things around. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a good mob read.
