Overview

While the story of the Mafia may not be over, it is a long and enthralling tale, drenched in blood and scored with betrayal. The History of the Mafia is full of blood-chilling characters—from Don Vito Cascio Ferro, the New York mobster who lured Joe Petrosino to his death in Palermo, to John Gotti, “the Teflon don” and Bernardo “The Tractor” Provenzano, who hid out in a farmhouse for forty-three years and was recently arrested by police. These were extraordinary men who lived through extraordinary times, times that are rapidly disappearing. The History of the Mafia tells the story of their lives, their families, their code, their crimes, and their cold-blooded murders.
