Item Description...
"I heard you paint houses" are the first words Jimmy Hoffa ever spoke to Frank "the Irishman" Sheeran. To paint a house is to kill a man. The paint is the blood that splatters on the walls and floors. In the course of nearly five years of recorded interviews Frank Sheeran confessed to Charles Brandt that he handled more than twenty-five hits for the mob, and for his friend Hoffa. Sheeran learned to kill in the U.S. Army, where he saw an astonishing 411 days of active combat duty in Italy during World War II. 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. When Bufalino ordered Sheeran to kill Hoffa, he did the deed, knowing that if he had refused he would have been killed himself. Sheeran's important and fascinating story includes new information on other famous murders, and provides rare insight to a chapter in American history. Charles Brandt has written a page-turner that is destined to become a true crime classic.

"Pre-production of the movie 'The Irishman' is moving ahead. That's the name currently given to the film based on Charles Brandt's book, 'I Heard You Paint Houses.' It's a compelling, can't-put-down account of the life of Philadelphia-area mobster Frank Sheeran." —Delaware News Journal
 

“Is Sheeran believable? Very . . . and ‘I Heard You Paint Houses’ is a very enjoyable book.” —Trial Magazine

 

“A page-turning account of one man’s descent into the mob.” —Delaware News Journal

 

“Sheeran’s confession that he killed Hoffa in the manner described in the book is supported by the forensic evidence, is entirely credible, and solves the Hoffa mystery.” – Michael Baden, M.D., former Chief Medical Examiner of the City of New York

 

“I’m fully convinced – now – that Sheeran was in fact the man who did the deed. And I’m impressed, too, by the book’s readability and by its factual accuracy in all areas on which I’m qualified to pass judgment. Charles Brandt has solved the Hoffa mystery.” —Professor Arthur Sloane, author of Hoffa

 

“One of Sheeran’s virtues was his gift as a storyteller; one of his flaws was his tendency to murder, in mobster jargon, ‘to paint houses.’ . . . Sheeran acknowledged that he was the one who killed the Teamsters boss. . . . On July 30, 1975, Hoffa disappeared. Sheeran explains how he did it, in prose reminiscent of the best gangster films.” –Associated Press

 

“Told with such economy and chilling force as to make The Sopranos suddenly seem overwrought and theatrical.” —New York Daily News

 

“Brandt’s book gives new meaning to the term ‘guilty pleasure.’” —Bryan Burrough in the New York Times Book Review

 

“A terrific read.” —Kansas City Star

movie  Oct 17, 2008
martin scorsese has begun production of movie for this book starring robert deniro as frank sheeran
 
Terrific and nostaligic  Oct 4, 2008
Solves a mystery, and it's distant enough in time to be fascinating without seeming horrifying. It's basically a narrative confession, and it rings entirely true. Feels true. I was almost more fascinated by the flavors of the time, the cultural aspects of mob life in the "old days." Can you trust this account? Maybe not entirely, since at times the story seems so full of pride and bluster, and surely there's some exaggeration, but it does read like non-fiction, not fiction. Genuinely hard to put down.
 
Poor condition  Sep 11, 2008
Received "I Heard You Paint Houses.." by Charles Brandt quickly enough however, the book was in very poor condition (ragged pages and food spots.) It was supposed to be "like new." I threw it out!

Virginia Perry
 
EVERYBODY BLEEDS... THE WAY I THINK IT WENT DOWN...  May 10, 2008
...Of course, this is just my opinion after reading Charles Brandt's book, but I have to say Brandt makes a compelling case for the unsolved mystery of Hoffa's dissapearence. "I Heard You Paint Houses," reads like a good detective story and creates a profile of Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran and his motive for killing Hoffa-- a leading suspect in his murder. The FBI could not get a deathbed confession out of "The Irishman," but Brandt comes close. The information is well researched, factual.

We'll never close the book on this case and Hoffa mystery theories will continue to abound, but myself, as a reader, have to say I think it was the way it went down.
 
Evil personified  Apr 7, 2008
November 22, 1963 was a defining moment for the Boomer generation and this book tells "the rest of the story" or at least more than I knew growing up in a sheltered Midwestern lifestyle. Autobiographical quotes of Frank Sheeran helped me to connect the dots between politics, unions and the mob families from WWII to the turn of the millennium. If you can stomach nonchalant murders, you may rate the book higher; you will find that Sheeran did not hesitate to paint "houses" and casually painted in towns all over the USA for cash or just to do what "needed to be done" without any apparent ethical consideration.
Charles Brandt does a good job of putting Sheeran's comments into historical, factual context so the outlandish story seems not only believable but also the personification of evil.
