After a review like this, I need to read this book:
“All my life I’ve felt the story I was told about how my father died did not add up,” Mr. Hainey writes. So as an adult, now deputy editor of GQ, he set out to investigate. He also set out to write a suspenseful book, but the mystery surrounding Bob Hainey’s death poses a problem. If it were bluntly explained, it would not fill a book. Neither would the circumstances that conspired to hide what happened, although they are the most interesting parts of this story. It turns out that the code of omertà in “The Godfather,” the “don’t ask me about my business,” was part of Chicago’s newspaper world too.
