Overview

Growing up poor and angry, Michael Corbitt fought his way up the ranks of greasers and street gangs until he attracted the attention of Chicago crime boss Sam Giancana, who placed him on the Willow Springs, Illinois, police force. By the time he was appointed chief of police, he'd also moved up the Outfit's ranks to live the high life of a respected mobster.Corbitt's luck turned when he was indicted on charges of racketeering and conspiracy to murder. Although he faced a twenty-year sentence, he refused to testify against organized crime figures under the witness protection program, maintaining instead the mafioso's code of silence.

Now Corbitt breaks that silence. Making no excuses for his dual existence, he bares his soul, confessing in graphic detail a life lived as both saint and sinner, a life that moves back and forth between the worlds of policeofficer and gangster with schizophrenic ease. Michael Corbitt recounts a life in the fast lane, where a new breed of wiseguys walks a tight rope of intrigue that spans thirty years and stretches around the globe from the Bay of Pigs to Iran Contra.

Performed by Stephen Lang
