Review:

In Donnie Brasco, FBI agent Joseph D. Pistone tells the story of working so deep undercover in the Mafia that the truth of his identity became blurry even for him. For six years, Pistone posed as jewel thief Donnie Brasco in order to pull off one of the most audacious sting operations ever. Because any small detail could blow his cover, Pistone adjusted his personality and habits to earn the trust of Mafia soldiers, connected guys, captains, and godfathers. He was so successful that many FBI surveillance teams assumed that he was yet another Mafia guy. This memoir paints a vivid portrait of the underworld of wise guys by revealing their code of honor, their treacherous dealings, their relationships with their wives and mistresses, and their lavish money habits. The suspense in Pistone's story builds as he unfurls his experience of life on the edge of good and evil and on the verge of death.

About the Author:

Joseph D. Pistone was an FBI agent for seventeen years before retiring from active duty in 1996. He is the New York Times bestselling author of Donnie Brasco: My Undercover Life in the Mafia, Donnie Brasco: Deep Cover, and Donnie Brasco: Mobbed Up. The Academy Award-nominated movie Donnie Brasco and the television series Falcone are based on his life as an undercover FBI agent. He now lives under a secret identity in an undisclosed location.

Book Description Hodder & Stoughton General Division, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. In 1978, the US government waged a war against organised crime. One man was left behind the lines. From 1976 until 1981, Special Agent Pistone lived undercover with the Mafia. Only able to visit his young family once every few months, Pistone - under the alias Donnie Brasco - ate, drank, partied, worked and sometimes killed with the wiseguys. He got so close that his Mafia partner, Lefty Ruggiero, asked him to officiate as best man at his wedding. Pistone's eventual testimony, in such spectacular prosecutions as 'the Pizza Connection' and 'the Mafia Commission' resulted in more than 200 indictments and 100 convictions of members of organised crime.
