I Heard You Paint Houses: Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran & Closing the Case on Jimmy HoffaThis shopping feature will continue to load items when the Enter key is pressed. I understand the necessity for including information about The Teamsters and other union work in which Hoffa was involved but again, for me at least there was just too much of it. The book’s title comes from the first words Jimmy Hoffa ever spoke to Frank “the Irishman” Sheeran. This was an awesome book. In 1975 I was a twenty-six year old man living just a little over a mile from the death house.
Enjoy a great reading experience when you buy the Kindle edition of this book. Secondly there are too much historical dialogue that makes this feel like a novel.
It would be SHOCKING! After returning home he became a hustler and hit man, working for legendary crime boss Russell Bufalino. Eventually he would rise to a position of such prominence that in a RICO suit then-U.S. Attorney Rudy Giuliani would name him as one of only two non-Italians on a list of 26 top mob figures.
To someone without the deep historical knowledge and familiar with the full historical record, case files, witnesses, etc., the reality is that the most important thing about this book is whether it is accurate or not. Every adult in this country would benefit from reading I HEARD YOU PAINT HOUSES. Although it is sort of a 'death bed confession' from Frank Sheeran about his life to Brandt, it becomes more tied in to Hoffa's disappearance and activities with regards to the Teamsters union and their links to organised crime (Russell Bufalino) in the US at that time. Sheeran's important and fascinating story includes new information on other famous murders, and provides rare insight to a chapter in American history. The Ice Man: Confessions of a Mafia Contract Killer [get mauled by a pittbull and set on fire and whatever The story of Frank Sheeran's life up to and beyond the disappearance of Hoffa. I do wish there had been audible clues to the changes between the storytellers though, since it was all narrated by one person.This past week, I happened to see a clip from CBS Sunday morning in which the guests were Martin Scorsese, Al Pacino and Robert De Niro who were promoting their movie ‘The Irishman’. A ripping yarn, as they say, and if only it were true I'd have given 5 stars. Please try againSorry, we failed to record your vote. I also felt I never got a close enough feel of Hoffa himself. If I am to be honest, it seemed to go on and on, and I was relieved that it finally ended. Maybe it was this that made me feel that this book is just too damned long. Can all of this really be true?

Once I started, it only took a few weekday nights to finish it, often disappointed I could barely keep my eyes open to finish a few more pages. BEWARE. To paint a house is to kill a man.
Amazing actors for an amazing true story!! Great book, great read. It was two years before he could accept the fact that his combat experience was even worth discussing. In this book, Frank Sheeran paints a LOT of houses, including his admittance to the killing of Jimmy Hoffa. Sheeran came across as a good soldier where he learned his 'trade' but was not a good family man.
Welcome back. Perhaps the author himself bonded with Sheeran. Excellent book - I recommend it for some readers and with some qualifications.

Can't wait to watch the Scorsese film later this year...My knowledge of this part of American history has always been rather sketchy, and I wanted to know more about Hoffa, the Teamsters, the Mafia connections, and the Kennedy’s.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on February 17, 2020 I give it five stars, only because I'm not allowed to give it six. The central question is: did Sheeran (the main character) lie to the author?
Thank you, Mr. brandt, for solving the Hoffa disappearance. Please try againSorry, we failed to record your vote. Or is it all true?
So many people did he, and his mob associates, kill, that he jokes that, were a local riverI cannot imagine why the title of this book was changed, for the recent film version, to the, rather dull, “The Irishman,” when it, surely, has one of the best titles ever.

Do we now know the people behind the assassination of JFK.
