"This fascinating account of a dark side of American history takes its title from the first words Jimmy Hoffa spoke to Frank Sheeran; to paint a house is to kill a man. But the book is about far more than killing. It is a rich cultural history told from the inside - a riveting read that is likely to become a true crime classic. And it introduces to the reading public Frank ""The Irishman"" Sheeran, a figure as ruthless and as fascinating as a mob legend can be."

I think this book answers the question: what happened to jimmy Hoffa, sr.? who else would Hoffa trust, to get into their car, in the parking lot where he was waiting for the meet, other than family members, and close associates of himself? the book answers the question of what happened to the body (it's not buried in a football stadium). frank sheeran, the big Irishman, was on his death bed when he wrote this book, with a ghostwriter. he goes so far as to reveal the moment of the murder, what was going on in his head, and --likely-- in Hoffa's mind, too. chuckie O'Brien, foster son of Hoffa, was complicit; he was the driver of the auto used to pick Hoffa up, ostensibly for the meet with a gangster. sheeran reveals the methods used for such an execution; as well as the motive.
