As exhilarating as this portion of the book alone is... the true character and personality of these witnesses... which ranged from psychopathic hit men to highly intelligent financial wizards... to poor "schleps" forced into this life, either by unwanted circumstance... or a gambling addiction... are all described by John based on his almost 24/7 involvement with them for days/weeks/months at a time... which forced their real inner character to be displayed. What is yet another level of excitement for the reader is the uncovering of all the corruption not only in different police departments... but the FBI and government as well. And to John's never ending credit... he never tries to hide from it. Some of the ways this corruption raised its ugly head was when a particular witness needed additional law enforcement protection when strong death threats to witnesses and their families were made, and depending on the jurisdiction they were being hidden in... the witness might say we can't use the local cops... or a specific FBI office... because the protected "bad guy" knew the mob had had members of those organizations on "the-pad"... so they couldn't be trusted.
As an added "cherry-on-top" for a reader like myself who enjoys reading about organized crime... are all the mob nicknames. Here are just a few for you to wet your appetite:
