The incredible true story of the death of Jimmy Hoffa, the most famous hit in Mafia history. Now a major motion picture.

‘The movie event of the year’ – Rolling Stone

‘One of Martin Scorsese’s best films ever’ – Guardian

The Irishman is an epic saga of organised crime in post-war America told through the eyes of World War II veteran Frank Sheeran, a hustler and hitman who worked for legendary crime boss Russell Bufalino alongside some of the most notorious figures of the 20th Century.

Praise for I Heard You Paint Houses: Now Filmed as The Irishman directed by Martin Scorsese

The book Brandt has written gives new meaning to the term ‘guilty pleasure.’ It promises to clear up the mystery of Hoffa’s demise, and appears to do so. Sheeran not only admits he was in on the hit, he says it was he who actually pulled the trigger – and not just on Hoffa but on dozens of other victims, including many, he alleges, dispatched on Hoffa’s orders. This last seems likely to spur a reappraisal of Hoffa’s career. – Bryan Burrough, author of Public Enemies, in The New York Times Book Review

My source in the Bufalino family . . . read I Heard You Paint Houses. All the Bufalino guys read it. This old-time Bufalino guy told me he was shocked. He couldn’t believe Sheeran confessed all that stuff to [Brandt]. It’s all true. – New York Police Department organized crime homicide detective Joseph Coffey
