Overview

Beginning in the 1920s, an all-star team of goons, gunmen and garrotters transformed America's criminal landscape. Its membership was diverse; the mob recruited men from all ethnicities and religious backgrounds. Most were natives of the Big Apple, handpicked from the city's toughest neighborhoods: Brownsville, Ocean Hill, Flushing. So prolific were their exploits that the media soon dubbed this bevy of hired hands Murder, Incorporated. The brainchild of aging mob bosses, including Meyer Lansky and Bugsy Siegel, this ruthless hit squad quickly captured America's attention, making headlines coast to coast for over two decades. As for who these men were and how their partnership came to be, join author Graham Bell as he sheds light on this dark history of the Mafia's most notorious crime syndicate.

    Ten dollars for a nook book that's a hundred pages long and fill

    Ten dollars for a nook book that's a hundred pages long and filled with no exciting info or revelations at all.  It tells the story so vaguely and in such generalities (poorly) that it's not worth the read. If you want confusing sentences or paragraphs that mention ten people at once going back and forth between people not so specifically then this is a book for you.
