Overview

Much blood has been spilled by the Sicilian and American Mafias—and almost as much ink has been expended upon the details of their culture and crimes. Little has been revealed, however, about the brutal, elusive figures who masterminded the birth and growth of one of the most powerful organizations in the world. Enriched by carefully researched material, first-hand documents such as a 1931 interview with Al Capone, and previously unpublished photographs, this page-turning account of the mysterious lives and harrowing crimes of the Mafia dons takes us into the heart of the Cosa Nostra’s innermost circle. Subjects of exclusive interviews include Thomas V. Fuentes of FBI International Operations, Rudolph Giuliani on the fight against organized crime and his prosecution of white-collar criminals, former NYC Police Commissioner Bernard B. Kerik, and former New York governor and Italian-American advocate Mario Cuomo. Also included is a testimony from Tommaso Buscetta, the famous Sicilian mafioso informer who revealed all the secrets of Cosa Nostra.
