About this Item

Cream coloured boards with navy titles on spine on this inscribed edition on the Canadian Mafia remain in Fine condition as does the interior which is clean and bright. The pictorial dust jacket is not clipped and also remains in Fine condition. This copy is inscribed on the front end paper by James Dubro, journalist with CBC's Current Affairs program; producer of many episodes of "the fifth estate" ; Connections and documentaries on the KGB. "Rocco Perri was the most colourful, successful and charismatic Mafia boss in Canadian history. He founded a bootleg empire that stretched from Ontario to New York, Buffalo, Chicago, the Maritimes and beyond. Perri's influence extended to American and Canadian Customs officials, high ranking police officers and senior politicians. Known as "Canada's Al Capone" he was a legend in his lifetime. Equally remarkable were his two common-law wives, Bessie Starkman and Annie Newman. This is a riveting and chilling study of real life crime and how the Calabrian Mafia established a power base in North America." 372 pages. Size: 6" By 9 1/4" 372 Pages Language: eng Language: eng.
