9781609495640: Gangsters and Organized Crime in Buffalo: History, Hits and Headquarters (True Crime)

Stories abound about legendary New York City gangsters like "Lucky" Luciano, but Buffalo has housed its fair share of thugs and mobsters too. While many were nothing more than common criminals or bank robbers, a powerful crime family headed by local boss Stefano Magaddino emerged in the 1920s. Close to Canada, Niagara Falls and Buffalo were perfect avenues through which to transport booze, and Magaddino and his Mafiosi maintained a stranglehold on the city until his death in 1974. Local mob expert Michael Rizzo takes a tour of Buffalo's mafia exploits everything from these brutal gangsters' favorite hangouts to secret underground tunnels to murder.

About the Author:

Michael Rizzo was born and raised in the suburbs of Buffalo. History was not his first love, but after purchasing an 1893 house in Buffalo, a light bulb went off in his head. He released his first book in 2005 and has not stopped since.

Review:

"Much has been written about Buffalo area mobsters in newspaper articles, magazines and, of course, in police and FBI files. But never has anyone put it all together... until now." --Lee Coppola Buffalo News
