Paddy Whacked The Untold Story of the Irish American GangsterHere is the shocking true saga of the Irish American mob In Paddy Whacked bestselling author and organized crime expert T J English brings to life nearly two centuries of Irish American gangsterism which spawned such unforgettable characters as Mike King Mike McDonald Chicago's subter For all the acclaim it's received I was very disappointed with this book The general background on the Irish gangster seems well researched but when you get down to specifics the whole effort falls way short Errors abound throughout Bugs Moran was actually not Irish but the son of French Canadian immigrants and Chicago's North Side mob could hardly be considered an Irish gang fictional dialogue is employed throughout thankfully sparingly and the supposed long rivalry between Irish gangsters and Italian and Jewish mobs seems largely speculative and overblown Where is the evidence for Owney Madden English born and far removed from his Irish ancestry being pressured by the Italians and Jews to turn on his Irish mob brethren? The supposed alliance between Vincent Mad Dog Coll and Jack Legs Diamond was newspaper speculation than anything else and English's theory that it constituted a possible Irish combine to rival the Italian Jewish syndicate falls flat when one realizes that Coll's mob were mostly Italians and Diamond's was also ethnically mixed And it's really a stretch connecting Joe Kennedy's early bootlegging ties to the JFK assassination which may or may not have been a Mob hit All in all it's an ambitious effort that still leaves a lot to be desired
