Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Written by a veteran crime reporter, this best-seller is the most complete and up-to-date source on this fascinating subject. In this "Who's Who" of organized crime, readers will find the Mafia culture, customs, and characters presented in more than 400 entries. More than ninety-five black-and-white photographs help capture Mafia history from the birth of the brotherhood to the law enforcement agents and organizations who have tried — and failed — to destroy it.

This edition traces the great Mafia dynasties up to and including the current heirs apparent.

A second edition of the complete guide to the history, culture and characters involved in the Mafia.
