TJ English's book Havana Nocturne: How the Mob Owned Cuba and Then Lost It to the Revolution brought me a much better understanding of Meyer Lansky.  It's pretty easy to read.  The book is now in paperback and on Amazon  here.
English has  new book out --- The Savage City: Race, Murder, and a Generation on the Edge.
