Rough Riders

1 Mins read

With a five-star review on this site, and chosen by RoughJustice as his favourite crime book of 2012, Rough Riders by Charlie Stella comes highly recommended. “Stella moves his chronicling of New York’s wise guys to the snowy terrain of North Dakota in a tale mirroring the true crime career of Whitey Bulger,” says RoughJustice. “Stupid, greedy people do stupid, greedy things, but Stella writes the criminals just as well as the cops, taking the effort to make sure we know even the most desperate of them have dreams. Stella cares about his characters and he made me care about them too. Close to a masterpiece, Rough Riders is number one with a bullet.”
