It's been a long time since I read the original Albany trilogy, (how many are there now, five?) but I found the other two to be a lot more fun to read. There's "Legs" about the crook Legs Diamond and "Billy Phelan's Greatest Game" about the shenanigans, arm-twisting and goings-on behind the closed doors of Albany's political machine. Excellent reads both.
