The Hammer Conspiracies
564 pp. 8 1/4 x 5 1/4. Black wrappers, red titles. Details investigations of mafia activity in Rochester, New York, the subsequent trials, and the debacle that followed. It is a story of perjured detectives, gang wars, organized crime, overthrown convictions, imprisoned law enforcement officers and prosecutors, faulty police work, and corrupt officials. "Vincent 'Jimmy the Hammer' Massaro was hit by the mob. His death generated conspiracy prosecutions against what was alleged to be the top echelon of the organization in Rochester, New York. The testimony of informers, including two of the alleged triggermen, and detectives who surveilled mob meetings where Massaro's fate was plotted produced convictions. But there had been no surveillances. Detectives admitted perjuring themselves. Alleged mobsters were released from prison. A bloody gang war erupted, and Federal Indictments were returned against Detectives and Prosecutors. A saga of fabricated evidence and corruption unprecedented in the war against organized crime."Keywords: TRUE CRIME MEMOIR BIOGRAPHY MYSTERY THRILLER SUSPENSE MOB MAFIA MAFIOSO CRIME DEATH VINCENT JIMMY THE HAMMER MASSARO CONSPIRACY PROSECUTION ALLEGED TOP ECHELEON ORGANIZATION ROCHESTER NEW YORK TESTIMONY INFORMERS INFORMANTS TRIGGERMEN DETECTIVES SURVEILLANCE CONVICTED CONVICTS CHIEF UNDERBOSS 1977 MURDER MURDERERS TRIAL SALVATORE SAMMY G GINGELLO BUFFALO NIAGARA FALLS BINGHAMTON PITTSBURGH LAW ENFORCEMENT MODUS OPERANDI COKEY FLO TOM DEWEY LUCKY LUCIANO LOCALS FEDS FEDERAL BUREAU INVESTIGATION FBI UPSTATE NEW YORK NY NY LAKE ONTARIO ROCHESTARIAN ROCHESTERIAN DON BOSS CONSIGLIERE GANG WAR CONTEMPORARY HISTORY MOTEL ALIBI MURPHY MURPH 1970S 1980 JUDSON MARSH ERIC REYNOLDS ANNA RUIZ RIC KATZ JAMES LATROBE MARCIANO MARY MORGAN JOSEPH PAN PANTANGELI METRO DETECTIVE AGENCY ALBERT DECANZIO ERNIE WHITE JUDICIAL JURISPRUDENCE JUDICIARY GUILT INNOCENCE CIVIL LITIGATION INCARCERATION COURTS WILLIAM C MAHONEY AME...
