Also check out the book entitled "Bad Company"
This other book goes into this crime further and the association with the Manson Family. I remember reading this book a few years ago and it sent chills up my spine...why? well, because I used to date Bill Mentzer (the "hit man" profiled in this book. It's truly amazing that he could have actually been the person that I read about and I was, well, shocked to say the least. I thought he made all of his money being a body guard for the rich and famous and had no idea that the trips he took me on were his alibi's...scary stuff when I look back. I also learned from the book that he was cheating on me with Lannie what's her name. Well, at least it had a good ending and he ended up in prison where he 'ought to be after he got his 7 minutes of fame featured on "America's Most Wanted. I stopped taking his collect calls and letters since I saw the show and read the book.

Chilling true life crime. Good portayal of the subjects

This book should be reprinted!
Oh wow!!!! Just when you think you've read everything about very bad people, along comes this gem. The cast of characters in this book makes Caligula look like Mother Teresa. A real page-turner about the murder of an aspiring producer, Roy Radin, in the 1980s. Steve Wick is a reader's writer: he keeps the pace moving weaving the details into a very rich tapestry. I didn't want the book to end. NB--Because this book is out-of-print, run, don't walk, to the public library and check out a copy. It's worth your time and effort.

Nice photos, but book has fundamental flaws
Avoid this book, in which the author fundamentally mis-characterizes events on Long Island's East End. While marketed as "non-fiction," it becomes apparent from the opening page that this is not a serious social history or economics text. Instead, diligent research and expert analysis are dispensed for an effort to develop an entertaining story with little connection to reality. Oliver Stone might be proud, but those seeking to develop a genuine understanding of the North Fork will be badly mis-informed. Despite the author's errant prediction that farming families face imminent financial demise, these people continue to prosper by marketing their high-end products to the area's well-heeled vacationers. One has to wonder why the author is taking pot-shots at these hardworking and successful people.

A fascinating history of a bygone era
Steve Wick captures history as an eyewitness and spins a heart touching tal

an excellent piece of work
as beautiful as it is profound. this book offers keen insights into the plight of the modern-day farmer as urban American encroaches upon his dwindling domain
