Johnny Martorano was half Irish, half Sicilian Even though his father was Sicilian and worked for the patriarchs out of providence, because he was not full blooded, he could never be a made man. Growing up south of Boston, was a high school athlete and was pre-law at Boston college for a short time. His father ran a bar in was was then known as the combat zone of Boston Basically Boston’s 42nd street. Many of those were during the gang wars. Best way I can describe it is that because Boston is Irish, the Italians never got big in Boston the way they did in other cities. This was the book I had been wanting to read. Carr delivered the goods here. HITMAN is well written, factually accurate and presents a story that needed telling.
