Thank you, NetGalley for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

A fascinating exploration of women's roles in organized crime with interesting social commentary sprinkled throughout. I enjoyed the content of the story, but this book is probably not one I'd pick up again. I did not enjoy the author's tone and the self-insert anecdotes. I felt like they took away from the story and often left a bad taste in my mouth like I was being lectured by a student who spent a summer abroad in Italy. As another reviewer stated, there was quite a bit of speculation in this book over concrete facts, which not only takes away from the story but also is off-putting when the author is supposed to be a credible journalist.

The Godmother was a fascinating read! I found the topic really interesting, and the subjects were fascinating.

Thank you to NetGalley and to the publisher for this ARC in exchange for an honest review.
