About this title


First published in 1980, Sweethearts is an eye-opening account of the men who controlled Toronto's highrise apartment business during the building boom of the 1960s.

The book tells the fascinating inside story of a thriving, profitable new industry and how organized crime moved in on it. It names names: the syndicate leaders, corrupt subcontractors, hitmen, couriers and extortionists. And it chronicles the violence--the burned cars, bombed buildings and shootings--that signalled the extent of mob involvement in the industry.

Based on years of careful research in Canada and the U.S., Sweethearts is a meticulous analysis of a bloody time in the nation's development history.

About the Author:
