Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his inimitable New York voice, Pulitzer Prize winner Jimmy Breslin gives us a look through the keyhole at the people and places that define the Mafia—characters like John Gotti, Sammy "the Bull" Gravano, Anthony "Gaspipe" Casso (named for his weapon of choice), and Jimmy "the Clam" Eppolito—interwoven with the remarkable true-crime saga of the good rat himself, Burt Kaplan of Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, the star witness in the recent trial of two NYPD detectives indicted for carrying out eight gangland executions. Through these unforgettable real-life and long-forgotten Mafia stories, Jimmy Breslin captures the moments in which the mob was made and broken.

Synopsis:

In his inimitable New York voice, Breslin, "the city's steadiest and most accurate chronicler" ("Village Voice"), gives readers a look through the keyhole at the people and places that define the Mafia--characters like Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, Gaspipe Casso, and the good rat himself, Burt Kaplan.
