Written with the assistance of a $25,000 foundation grant, based on personal research that has been invaluable to law~enforcement agencies all over the country, this book names the names~from Las Vegas to "legit" take~overs in eastern real estate. ~ The full, shocking, eye~opening, intensively documented story of major crime in America has never before been told. It rivals in suspense such popular TV shows as "The Untouchables"~as a matter of fact, there really was an Eliot Ness, a legend more than a reality as far as his crime~busting was concerned. While the author concentrates on the mammoth Cleveland Syndicate, such are the incredible interlocking relationships of big~time crime that through the story of this one organization the whole national picture emerges. More than thirty years ago, during the Prohibition era, the Syndicate first ran armor~plated rum~running craft on Lake Erie. From rum~running, illegal distilleries, and bootlegging, the mobsters turned to many other profitable rackets. (As Owney "the Killer" Madden, who had invested $350,000 in a New York laundry, was quoted as saying in 1930: "These legitimate rackets, there ain't no sense to them. You've got to wait for your money.") Gambling casinos, night clubs, charging "dues" of $1,000 a week to keep out unions from laundries and dry cleaners, slot machines, the numbers game, Murder, Inc., betting ~ the boys took over. In 1934 the country was divided into territories (the details are shrouded in mystery), and internecine gang warfare was called off. Meyer Lansky got Florida (and the Caribbean), "Bugsy" Siegel got the Far West, including Nevada. The Eastern Syndicate got the Atlantic Coast, where Costello got slots, Lepke the garment industry, Luciano narcotics and prostitution, and "Trigger Mike" Coppola numbers. The Cleveland Syndicate got Arizona. (Al Capone's successor still ruled Illinois.) While many of the gangsters have since either been liquidated by their own fellows, imprisoned, or have even died from natural causes, the crime machine is still functioning. Currently, there has been great excitement nationally about "skimming" practices of some western casinos. Mr. Messick's book, written a year and a half ago, describes in detail how the skimming works. The Silent Syndicate is fast~paced reading; it is also so completely factual and thoroughly researched that it is already being used by federal agencies as a source book on organized crime. (the history of the "boys in Cleveland" as detailed in the Robert DeNiro film "Casino"). Seller Inventory # 10061801
