@ John Joe McGinley

The Irish Wise Guys is a no-holds-barred account focusing on the most notorious Irish American Gangsters. Crime bosses for whom death and destruction was a daily currency in their lives.
Gangsters like Whitey Bulger, Vincent ‘Mad Dog’ Coll, George ‘Machine Gun’ Kelly and Owney ‘The Killer’ Madden. In different circumstances these men could have been captains of industry, politicians, or even union leaders. Instead, they choose a path of crime that would make them into some of the most wanted men in America.

    The Irish Wise Guys was read by my sons and husband. It’s the type of book that makes a great addition to the family bookcase. It’s well researched and informative with fascinating stories about an aspect of Irish people and history that isn’t always covered in the school curriculum. My sons in particular were intrigued to read that one of the Irish gangsters shared the same surname as themselves!! Overall an enjoyable read and one that can be dipped into again and again.
