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...
Also If you are Interested In "Mob" stories take a look at mobcandy.com. Let Frankie know If you visited after reading this review on Amazon europe.
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.
Over the years he has appeared on numerous tv shows in disguise as of course in the end when all the glamour was gone and he was left with a life sentence he turned rat,he is responsible for many inditments icluding John Gotti.
If you enjoy finding out about Mafia king pins this is the book for you,it goes into detail about one of the lesser known of the 5 families the and there top capo little Nicky Scarfo(the uncle) he was a total nutjob and responsible for hundreds of hits.
Crazy Phil gives a very good insight into all the mafia/ family's dealings and one on one interactions with various mobsters like his uncle Nicky Scarfo, Chuckie Merlino (Skinny Joey's dad), Bobby Manna (ex Genovese consiglieri), his meeting with John Gotti and why various mobsters within his family were murdered etc
Would recommend to those who enjoy reading about mobsters
