Synopsis: Be sure to see Kill the Irishman?the major motion picture based on Rick Porrello?s true-crime masterpiece!

A modern warrior known as Greene
Was very quick and smart, and mean.
He scrambled hard and fought like hell,
And led a charmed existence.
They shot him down and blew him up
With most regular persistence.
?From The Ballad of Danny Greene
Clevelan d, the 1970s:

A fearless Irishman boldly muscles in on the Italian-American Mafia?intrepid, charismatic, shrewd, cunning, and armed with a master plan to take over the rackets under the auspices of the Irish banner of which he was so fiercely proud. His name is Greene, his signature color is green, and with his Irish luck for surviving bungled mob attempts on his life, he is seemingly indestructible. In the end, the war with Danny Greene?and his ultimate murder?severely crippled the Italian stranglehold on organized crime, with historic repercussions that outlived the unsinkable Irishman himself.

About the Author: Rick Porrello is a Greater Cleveland police officer with Mafia roots. He is also the author of The Rise and Fall of the Cleveland Mafia. Porrello began writing his first book during research into the murders of his grandfather and three uncles who were mob leaders killed in Prohibition-era, bootleg violence. The book quickly became a regional favorite. Porrello is an accomplished jazz musician and soloist, and spent three years traveling worldwide as a drummer for the late Sammy Davis Jr. With a degree in criminal justice, Porrello is a member of the Italian-American Police Officers Association, the National Writers Association, and the American Federation of Musicians.
