**Now a major Netflix film directed by Martin Scorsese and starring Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel**

The Irishman is an epic saga of organised crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran, a hustler and hitman who worked for legendary crime boss Russell Bufalino alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th Century.

Spanning decades, Sheeran's story chronicles one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in American history, the disappearance of legendary union boss Jimmy Hoffa, and it offers a monumental journey through the hidden corridors of organized crime: its inner workings, rivalries and connections to mainstream politics.

Sheeran would rise to a position of such prominence that in a RICO suit against The Commission of La Cosa Nostra, the US Government would name him as one of only two non-Italians in conspiracy with the Commission. Sheeran is listed alongside the likes of Anthony "Tony Pro" Provenzano and Anthony "Fat Tony" Salerno. In the course of nearly five years of recorded interviews, Sheeran confessed to Charles Brandt that he handled more than twenty-five hits for the mob, and Brandt turned Sheeran's story into a page-turning true crime classic.

Can't bloody wait for this to come out, got it on my reminder thingy on Netflix. Three and a half hours is a long bloody film, but then again I have seen Once Upon a time in America about 10 times so should be a breeze

No idea how the book will compare to the film....or maybe that should be the other way round....just glad that Amazon stated for once that it had been published under another name as wouldn't have realised that I'd already bought it...ehm a year ago...and not got round to reading it yet....the film will probably have become a classic by the time I read the book

And wasn’t that a great film!
Thanks for posting @tiggerloveslife . Heat added.
I’ve read this book. Whether Sheeran’s Story is true or not I can’t say but it’s a fascinating book.

I spent quite a while this morning reading the background of it all before deciding whether to buy, because I really dislike factual stories that aren't factual for sure.

It appears probably not, or at least certainly not beyond a doubt, but that's the trouble with publishing the stories of any life-long lying sociopath like this guy. You have to distrust them by default.
