After nearly forty years of silence, Dr. Bill Galbreth, finally tells his personal story of his coincidental repeated involvement with the Boston mafia and the torture they inflicted upon him in the mid-1970's. Dr. Galbreth lays out, in striking clarity, the underbelly and human nature of the American mob. More than thirty years ago, Bill Galbreth, then, a soon-to-be graduate of Tufts Dental School who had externed at the local prison and was the first - and, at that time, the only - certified forensic dentist in the US, was abducted, tortured, and hired by the 1970's Boston mob in their attempt to falsify evidence on a major murder which would bring down a criminal master mind. A searing yet human novel of the east coast mafia underworld, The Mark of the Mob introduces readers to the powerful legacy of criminal masterminds, the nature of the tactics they used and shows a very personal side to criminal psychology. Galbreth shares the details on the criminal mastermind, his relationships with inmates, and the gruesome torture he endured upon his capture. With its themes of the multi-faceted faces of fear, the desire to take care of one's own, and the dangerously slippery slope of a dishonest life, it will resonate with millions of readers across the world—and become one of the few mafia books told by someone who was only involved by virtue of the alignment of several circumstances; neither by virtue of criminal involvement nor an investigative career. A definitive volume of the human nature to be prone to fear, this book gives a first person account of the fearsome and fearfully enacted violence that permeated mob subculture; an underground world that, running on fear, remains mired in intrigue, complicated relationships, controversy, and the collective consciousness.
