Gangster - Lorenzo Carcaterra Not quite finished yet but I don't expect it will get any better. Finished with Mr. Carcaterra for now. I really liked his book [b:Apaches: A Novel of Suspense|66407|Apaches A Novel of Suspense|Lorenzo Carcaterra|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1348638355s/66407.jpg|2251682], his follow-on to that ([b:Chasers|1780516|Chasers|Lorenzo Carcaterra|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1348340281s/1780516.jpg|64388]) was just ok. [b:Gangster|539894|Gangster|Lorenzo Carcaterra|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1175634931s/539894.jpg|1131956] feels like an uninspired version of [b:The Godfather|22034|The Godfather|Mario Puzo|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1327871801s/22034.jpg|266624]. The book is told in a series of flashbacks. I never had a sense of suspense or felt a connection to the players.
