Until it was destroyed from within by drugs, greed, and the decline of its traditional crime Family values. And by guys like Sal Polisi. He was born in Brooklyn—the same place that spawned Murder, Inc., Al Capone and John Gotti, the future Mob godfather who became his friend. Polisi was raised on a family legacy that led him into the life...

                                                                Whereas the Purple Gang was a predominantly Jewish group, the crime organizations covered in this volume all come from different ethnic backgrounds. Each gang covered provides insight not only into their crime organization, but also into the ethnic origins of the region. For instance, the chapter on the Giannola/Vitale Mafia covers the origins of the war between the two gangs, which lasted from 1918 to 1921. It also covers the origins of the Italian Mafia-including the history of the dreaded...

But he was present at such key events of the modern Costra Nostra as the sensational slaying of mob boss Paul Castellano, Gotti's predecessor, outside a Manhattan steakhouse. A story about killing and being killed, revealing the truth behind a quarter century of shocking...

He is Salvatore ("Sammy the Bull") Gravano, second–in–command of the Gambino crime family, the most powerful in the nation.

This is the truth about the Mob's control of the casinos in Vegas like you've never heard it before, from start to finish. Two of the nation's most powerful crime family bosses went to prison in the 1930's: Al Capone and Lucky Luciano. Frank Nitti took over the...

The riveting front-page news story of an FBI agent falsely accused of ordering four mob hits. FBI agent Lin DeVecchio was a key player in the New York Mafia wars from the late seventies through the early nineties.

Who went after Lin...
