Calling all true crime junkies and mystery lovers
You won’t want to miss this special event with organized crime historian and author Rick Porrello hosted by Hamlet at Chagrin Falls. As a former police chief and professional jazz drummer, Porrello is a character all his own – he began writing his first book while doing research into the murders of his grandfather and three uncles, all of whom were mob leaders killed in Prohibition-era violence.
Since then, he has written several more books, including “To Kill the Irishman: The War that Crippled the Mafia,” which was developed into a major motion picture starring Ray Stevenson, Vincent D’Onofrio, Christopher Walken and Val Kilmer. His latest book, “Bombs, Bullets & Bribes: The True Story of Notorious Jewish Mobster Alex Shondor Birns,” tells the true story of one of the country’s most dangerous con artists and his police officer partner.
