Book Claims to Reveal Hoffa's Killer

In his new book I Heard You Paint Houses, attorney Charles Brandt says his late client, Teamster and Mafia hit man Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran, confessed to killing Jimmy Hoffa, the longtime Teamster leader who disappeared in 1975. Brandt based his book on more than a decade's worth of tape-recorded conversations with Sheeran. Brandt speaks with NPR's Steve Inskeep.
