"In the late 1970s, The Outfit has the entire city of Chicago in its hands. Tony Accardo is its fearless leader. Nicky Passero is his loyal soldier, though no one knows he has a direct line in to the boss of bosses. When the Christmas gift Accardo got for his wife, an inscribed bracelet with gold and diamond inlay, is stolen along with other items in a jewelry heist, Nicky is charged with tracking down and returning all of the items-by whatever means necessary. Forced into an impossible situation, Nicky must find a way to carry out Accardo's increasingly unhinged instructions and survive the battle for control of Chicago. What Accardo doesn't know: Nicky has a secret which has made his life impossible and has put him in the pocket of the FBI. Based on the true story of Tony Accardo, the longest-reigning mob capo in history, Gangland is a Shakespearean-esque drama of integrity, lost honor, and revenge. Gritty and action-packed, it is the ultimate gangster tale and Chuck Hogan's most thrilling novel yet"-- Provided by publisher.

For decades, Chicago's crime world was ruled by the Outfit, and Tony Accardo, known for his brutality, was the Outfit's longest reigning "capo dei capi." Hogan's story is based on a true incident that occurred in the 1970s, when some of the soldiers overseen by Accardo's loyal lieutenant, Tony Passero, rob a jewelry story without informing Accardo of their plans. Enraged at this act of extreme disrespect, Accardo charges Passero with forcing the renegades to give up the goods they stole, which included a bracelet destined to be a Christmas gift for Accardo's wife. In revenge, the thieves decide to burgle Accardo's house. Disrespect times 10! As Passero metes out Accardo's punishment on the thieves, the violence escalates into a bloody vendetta. Passero is a good company man, but he has a secret that could prove much more problematic for Accardo than an unauthorized jewel heist and a lost Christmas present. This skillfully written, suspenseful roller-coaster of a thriller will please fans of both Mob fiction and true crime. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
