And nobody mentions Billy Bathgate, by E.L. Doctorow? Oh, man. Dutch Schultz. He was a real mobster, but the book is a novel, written about one of his associates. Dutch was nuts, he allegedly beat a man to death just for looking at him, which is actually in the book with a little more meat to the motive. It's seriously one of the greats. Enough sex and violence to last you for a good while.
