Overview

30 inside stories of the American Mafia, Sicilian Cosa Nostra, Camorra and 'Ndrangheta

Images of life in the Mob pervade our film and TV screens, some glamorous, some horrific -- what is the reality?

Investigative journalist Roger Wilkes has put together the largest ever collection of insider stories from prominent ex-mafiosi, infiltrators and award-winning writers. It contains tell-all accounts by the likes of:

Richard 'The Iceman' Kuklinski, the contract killer who claimed to have murdered over 200 people in a career lasting 43 years.

Frankie Saggio, who 'freelanced' for all five of New York's Mafia families, narrowly escaping assassination before being busted for a major scam.

Joey Black, the Hitman, chillingly professional murderer of 38 victims and regarded by many as the 'original Soprano'.

Albert DeMeo, the son of a gangster, who later became a lawyer.

'Donnie Brasco', real name Joseph Pistone, the FBI agent, who worked undercover in the Bonanno and Colombo crime families in New York for six years.

Tommaso Buscetta, the Sicilian mafioso, the first pentito, or informant, of real significance to break omerta. The two judges with whom he worked, Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino, were both later killed by the Mafia.

This is the reality of the world of men you wouldn't want to cross.
