    One thought on “From the Dead”

    1. well written and worth your time. Having grown up in a suburb of Philly the story brings back memories of places and times. John writes a very readable book that holds your interest and you buy into the main characters wanting to know how the fare in the end. Well written and very well worth the time. Growing up I knew about the mob, but this paints a picture of how deeply they we ingrained into Unions and drugs. I hope John has another book like this that he's working on.
