John Gotti was the original New York Untouchable - a Godfather who laughed at the law. He rose from the streets of Queens to head the Gambino family, America's most powerful crime family - and his path there was littered with bodies. He was a criminal, a killer, a womaniser and a celebrity. Known as the Teflon Don because no charge would stick, he loved to stroll out of the courtroom in thousand-dollar suits waving to the waiting crowd. Time magazine put him on the cover, but the Feds couldn't put him in jail. But then the FBI assembled a special task force with the sole aim of bringing him down. Finally they identified Gotti's weak spot and set the trap. His fall from the heights of America's Mafia shook the underworld to its core. Organised crime reporters and bestselling authors Jerry Capeci and Gene Mustain use FBI tapes and a host of inside sources on both sides of the law give the definitive account of the brutal story of John Gotti.
