Probably the best book i've ever read!, 12 Nov 2006
An extreemely interesting read about post second world war mafia. It is extreemely well written and will give you a very concise read about the higherlings of the five mafia families.
The books main point is the introduction of the Rackateering Influenced and Corrupt Orginations law (RICO) and its major implementations on recent crime figures such as gotti and massino.
However, if you are looking for a book detailing pre second world war mafia then this is not it. Luciano is briefly detailed, murder inc is included a bit but that is not what this book is about - and no, al capone is not in this book!!
If you want to know all sbout the ups and downs of more recent mafia activities then i would definately recoment you read this book!
