    Subtitled "My Life of Crime in the Chicago Police Department", Mob Cop tells about former Chicago police officer and Outfit associate Fred Pascente as the man who links Tony Spilotro, a central character in Nicholas Pileggi��_��s Casino and one of Chicago��_��s most notori��__ous mob figures, to William Hanhardt, chief of detectives of the Chicago Police Department. Pascente and Spilotro grew up together on Chicago��_��s Near West Side, and as young toughs they were rousted and shaken down by Hanhardt. While Spilotro became one of the youngest made men in Chicago Outfit history, Pascente was draft��__ed into the army and then joined the police department. Soon taken under Hanhardt��_��s wing, Pascente served as Hanhardt��_��s fixer and bagman on the department for more than a decade. At the same time, Pascente remained close to Spilotro, mak��__ing frequent trips to Las Vegas to party with his old friend while helping to rob the casinos blind. As a policeman he led a double life, doing genuine police work un��__der Hanhardt��_��s tutelage while at the same time keeping an eye out for opportunities for bribery and theft. His position on both sides of the law gave him unrivaled knowl��__edge of the workings of Chicago��_��s deeply rooted culture of corruption. Mob Cop details the decline of tra��__ditional organized crime in the United States, and reveals information about the inner workings of the Outfit that has never been publicly released. Fred Pascente��_��s col��__orful stories of crooked cops and danger��__ous criminals make his memoir a matchless tell-all. Photographs 328 Pgs. Hardcover 2015
