Format: Paperback

The book gives you the details of murders that were unsolved. It gives word by word confessions of some of the top capos in Murder Inc. It tells you the true reasons behind Bugsy Siegel and Kid Twist deaths as well as others. The Murder Inc. book gives you a detailed event of how and why Murder Inc. was created and how it became the power structure it is today.

Format: Paperback
a good book with all the big underworld names (luciano, mrA, buggsy seigal ,johnny torrio ,anastasia, lepke).the only bad point was that it did not highlight probably the most powerful and defnetly the smartest and richest gangster of that era meyer lansky .all in all a good book giving you a ringside seat to witness the chilling accounts of death that were murder inc.
