9780732287856: Gaspipe: Confessions of a Mafia Boss

Anthony 'Gaspipe' Casso, boss of New York's Lucchese crime family, was a Mafia superstar, responsible for more than fifty murders. Now serving thirteen life sentences at a federal prison in Colorado, Casso has given journalist and New York Times bestselling author Philip Carlo the most intimate, personal look into the world of La Cosa Nostra ever seen. By pure happenstance, Casso had lived next door to the family of young Philip Carlo and so Carlo was able to get into the mind, heart and soul of one of the most cunning, ruthless mob bosses in the annals of crime history. In Gaspipe, Casso reveals the shocking detail behind headline‚ making crimes and crime figures, including the relationship between La Cosa Nostra and the Russian Mafia, the truth behind the Mafia and the narcotics trade, and much more. Chilling and illuminating, unvarnished and entertaining, Gaspipe is a rollercoaster ride into a world few outsiders have ever dared to enter.

About the Author:

Philip Carlo was born and raised on the mean streets of Bensonhurst, Brooklyn—the same streets Tommy Pitera hailed from. There, Carlo earned a Ph.D. in street smarts, and he escaped a life of crime by writing about it with unusual insight. He is the author of the bestsellers The Night Stalker, about notorious serial killer Richard Ramirez, and The Ice Man, about infamous Mafia contract killer Richard Kuklinski. Carlo lives with his wife, Laura, in New York City.

From AudioFile:

If you'd like to vicariously observe contract killings, lucrative robberies, and meetings with Mafia bosses, you've found the right audiobook. Now in prison, Cosa Nostra boss Antonio Casso tells all to the author in a blatant violation of OMERT--the code of silence. His double life of loving family man and relentless killer hardly seems possible--unless you're familiar with Tony Soprano. Alan Sklar's deep, raspy voice fits the noir tale of violence and death. His delivery stays matter-of-fact and detached while describing dozens of assassinations, often preceded by torture. When necessary, Sklar's Italian kicks in so well one can almost see his arms waving. J.A.H. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
