In other words, life is pretty damned good until suddenly the bad old days rear their ugly head. May 18, Jennifer Gaarder rated it it was amazing. I enjoyed this but not as much as his other stories. The first chapter, in which Frank rises and goes e, the routine of beginning his day, is alone worth the price of admission.
Winslow has already introduced the readers to the mafia through the memories of Frankie’s past. Someone wants This is the first book I’ve read by this author.
Surfer, former Marine, Vietnam vet, Mafia hitman, father, bait salesman, businessman, opera fan and civic minded local hero seems like a lot to roll into one character, but Frank is a fascinating figure. I liked the final chase the most.
And I’m going to read them all Cookies come in two flavours – persistent and transient. Be the first to review this item Would you odn to tell us about a lower price? The mystery kept me guessing thoughout and even at the end there were a couple of excellent twists which caught me off guard.
The Winter of Frankie Machine
His choices seemed to be the Marines or the tuna fleet. Highly recommended to those who like crime, organised crime, good writing or intrigue. My very first novel by Don Winslow, and definitely not the last one. I liked Frankie, but his youthful carelessness about killing stopped me from fully believing he is a reliable narrator. He once was known by the nickname Frankie Machine by the local branch of the Mafia that he worked for, and his name is still respected and feared.

Review Text Frank es un hombre tranquilo. If you’ve been fortunate enough to have read this wonderful book, you’ll completely understand my one word review. The fun is becoming acquainted with the shady mobsters, whether or not they come from the old school or are part of the new breed of bangers influenced by Detroit rappers.
Winslow is an incredibly talented writer and this is a book that is just impossible to put down. I loved this book when it was first published inand I enjoyed it even more, re-reading it nine years later. This book sucked me in from page 1 I often find that such a cliched saying but in this case, it’s so true and now I have the utter joy that is Don Winslow’s entire back catalogue to lose myself in.
Winslow is good at what he does. He is forced to become Frankie Machine again to kill before being killed and p This was a good story surrounding a man who had gotten out of the mob and now has a normal productive life, a longtime girlfriend and a daughter who is going to be a doctor.
The descriptions were accurate and full of detail. Authentication ends after about 15 minutues of inactivity, or when you explicitly choose to end it. No trivia or quizzes yet. This is the fourth book I’ve read from Winslow and it would probably make the best starting point for those who are not familiar with his work. Before he surfed the Gentleman’s Hour and became everyone’s buddy, he was Frankie the Machine, a mobbed-up west coast version of Goodfellas.
Want to Read saving…. In the first few chapters, we get a clear picture of who Frank Machianno is, and what winsloa life is like. Through internecine feuds to strip club wars and a stint in the jungles of Vietnam and shaking Nixon’s hand at the Western White House, a whole history is fleshed out and connections made.
This makes for a wonderful piece. View all 7 comments.

I would probably have given it five stars right after I finished it, but I got sidetracked and I write the review some three months later. Amchine sense trying to summarize the plot. For example, at loot. Old-school, Frank thinks, using a wire.
