Writer Joe O’Donnell, best known for his series of mysteries starring  the rugged Boston private investigator Gallagher, returns to the podcast but he’s not alone. Introducing Steve Sachs, the subject of Joe’s new book, Living on the Fringe of the Mob. Through Steve’s eyes and life experiences Joe has compiled a riveting collection of true stories about the New York Mob from the 1960s through the early 2000s.

There are many encounters, some humorous, others downright terrifying. Here’s a look at what actual mobsters are like, both “on and off the job.”
