The son of notorious mobster Frank Calabrese describes the violent world he endured before making the life-threatening decision to work with the FBI to shut down the family syndicate, recounting the months he worked as an undercover insider to collect evidence for dozens of murders.

About the Author

\Frank Calabrese, Jr., lived in his native Chicago for thirty-nine years. Mentored by his father and brought into the Chicago outfit at age eighteen, he now resides in Arizona with his ex-wife and two children.
