Charles 'Lucky' Luciano was a vicious mobster who rose to become the king of the New York underworld. He was a legend - but also a fake master criminal manipulated by the federal agents who had put him behind bars. This myth-busting biography tells Luciano's real story, from his early days as a top hit man to his exploits running sex and narcotics empires and revelations about his trip to Nazi Germany to set up a drugs racket. Through painstaking research, Newark exposes the truth about what Luciano really did during the war and reveals the gangster's role as a Cold War agent, helping the US government fight Communism in Sicily. "Lucky Luciano: Mafia Murderer and Secret Agent" turns accepted Mafia history on its head with an extraordinary story that has never been told before.
