Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The violent rise and precipitous fall of the Philadelphia/Atlantic City Mafia family led by the bloodthirsty Nicky Scarfo has received extensive coverage in Joseph Salerno and Stephen J. Rivele's The Plumber ( LJ 1/90), Donald W. Cox's Mafia Wipeout ( LJ 2/15/90), and Frank Friel and John Guinther's Breaking the Mob ( LJ 6/15/90). Journalist Anastasia's riveting account is based primarily on his interviews with Scarfo associate Nick Caramandi, a confessed murderer and extortionist-turned-government witness who helped convict the entire Scarfo hierarchy. His story rings true, and it is one of treachery and viciousness, all blood and no honor. Easily the best of the Scarfo mob books, it is recommended for organized crime collections.--Gregor A. Preston, Univ. of California Lib., Davis
