Classic paperbacks#6: Luciano’s Luck

Luciano's Luck
             Luciano’s Luck

Read this one when it first came out in 1981. Classic Jack Higgins’ use of a half-truth from history to build a solid thriller.

The book is based on the US government’s use of a Mafia hood, Charles ‘Lucky’ Luciano, during WW2.

What Luciano did in real life is debated; Higgins turned it into a great book.
