The Mafia shows the reality of what life is like inside the American Mafia and Sicilian Cosa Nostra. The 19 insider accounts, collected here in the largest anthology of mob stories, are at once glamorous and horrific. And irrefutable, since they come from prominent ex-mafiosi, infiltrators, and award-winning writers.
You will get to meet serious men you would not want to cross: Richard The Iceman Kuklinski, responsible for as many as 200 murders in a career that spanned 43 years. Frankie Saggio, who freelanced for all five of New York s Mafia families and narrowly escaped assassination. Joey Black, the Hitman, a cold-blooded murderer of 38 victims, who is considered by many to be the original Soprano. Donnie Brasco, the FBI agent who worked undercover in the Bonanno and Colombo crime families for half a decade. Tomasso Buscetta, the Sicilian mafioso the first pentitio, informer, of real significance to break omertà, the code of honor. The two judges with whom he worked, Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino, were both later killed by the Cosa Nostra.
Like no other book, The Mafia shows in gritty detail mob life and mob business from the inside.
