You may remember going to the small grocery stores and would see a fellow come in and one stand out front with long black coats and just look at the store owner as he opened the cash register and took out a certain amount of protection money and hand it to the fellow standing there with a little grin on his face as no words exchanged. Then they would leave till the following week and repeat it all over again store after store to pick money. If not the store might be burnt to the ground soon.Back then almost everyone knew what was going on but it seemed like it was something they were scared to interfere with at the time till many years later.
But this story is about a very nice Lady that was just a waitress with a boyfriend that happened to become friends with a group from the underworld. All of the names in this book have been changed as to protect any one of whom might still be alive. The person that gathered the information and kept notes has recently passed and his lovely wife who was told of the dealings every night wrote them down as she heard his words.
They sat in a tiny booth typing away through the years till they had a box of five thick books more than enough for 20 books to be written. For the present time we will only take a part out of one to let you know of the dealings and how Antonio became involved and how things got settled for some of the Mafia's higher up's back in the 1940s and 50s. If you like crime stories you will like this one.
