Review: Saint Mudd: A Novel of Gangsters and Saints

User Review  - Jeff Solei - Goodreads

One of my favorites books of all time. The characters were great and easily identifiable. The best part of the book was that it took place during the gangster era in St. Paul. Being from there I was able to not only picture what it was like back then, but also picture present day St. Paul. Read full review
