This Is the definitive book on the Scarfo years. "Mafia Prince" is the story of how the most violent crime family of all came to power and In the end Imploded, as "Little Nicky" began to trust no one, not even his most loyal "Capos". The story as told by Phillip "Crazy Phil" Leonetti starts from when Phil's father abandoned him and his uncle Nicky takes him under his wing, teaching him from that moment on about "Our Life". A must read book with treachery, and bodies every where. Before the end Phil has seen his uncle for what he really is and as he puts it "Several times in the mid 80s I came very close to killing my uncle" "What honour Is there In killing our most loyal captain, killing two men In front of their mothers and my uncle telling me to slit his wifes throat"

Phillip has admitted to killings and describes them in the book. Should a man sentenced to 40+ years in prison be allowed to walk the streets with a new I.D.? Read the book and see what you think. You won't be disapointed I have over 100 books on the U.S. "Mafia" and this one rates In the top 3. Buy it you won't be able to stop reading once you start. A page turner from the first page...

This book is such an excellent read for anyone who has an interest in the American mafia, very easy to read but hard to put it down.
Philip Leonetti describes his life in the Philly mob in his own words and describes how his uncle Nicky Scarfo became the most violent mafia boss in history, with his liking for killing, even within his own family and when that killing went to far when Scarfo orders the killing of one of his most loyal capo's Salvie Testa, that would eventually have Leonetti question his uncle's actions on La Cosa Nostra, this thing of ours and the life he lead in the Philly mob to become the number 2, under boss with ten killings under his belt.
Leonetti would eventually turn RAT and take down Scarfo and other bosses from other families, including John Gotti.
I recommend this book to anyone that has an interest in the mafia.

Reasonable book, however if you have read any other mafia related books or seen any documentaries on the subject, no big revelations.
