The Iron Will of Shoeshine Cats - Hesh Kestin Does your heart go pitter-patter for "Bugsy Malone"? Or maybe "The Godfather"? Perhaps "The Maltese Falcon"? If so, "The Iron Will of Shoeshine Cats" by Hesh Kestin serves up 2 parts mob story, 1 part noir to make a gripping, ripping fun yarn about the Jewish mob in 1960s NYC. Definitely recommended.
