Mobs Mheiricea - Mickey Spillane.
Mickey Spillane was known as "the last of the gentleman gangsters". He ran the rackets in the Hell's Kitchen neighbourhood of New York and was married to the daughter of the most powerful political family in the district. For decades he waged a war with the Mafia for control of Hell's Kitchen but when Spillane was finally murdered, it wasn't the Italians who pulled the trigger but a vicious new generation of Irish gangsters.
