I came across this one at the book store today. Has anyone read it yet? I'm not too well versed on the Black Hand, but the story sounds intriguing.

I’m reading the Carmine Persico and his murderous Mafia family. About half way through it. As others have said it’s a good read.

I like pulling up google maps and looking up places and addresses when reading Mob books. Obviously things look much different nowadays. But when reading the part about the big gang fight at prospect park near the boat dock and Lullwater bridge and pulling it up on google maps and seeing it from that point of view gave a unique context when reading about that gang fight.

Please let me know whether you're prevented from viewing the French-language article to which I've linked below because you live outside Canada. The article is an interview with the individual with whom Daniel Renaud collaborated on his new book.

Anyone? Carlo's got a book coming out? In-law to the Corleone family? Given a living, but knew nothing of the family business? Garroted by Corleone capo Clemenza while believing he was being driven to the airport to be Michael's man in Vegas? He was nice enough to write a book. I'm sure there'll be a few stories about the Godfather set. Lots of wiseguys hanging around that place. He also killed a cartel lord at his restaurant. Might be worth checking out.

Joey the Hitman: The Autobiography of a Mafia Killer by "Joey Black" and David Fisher. I had heard about this for a while now but was skeptical until I saw the interview with him on youtube. Like the interview, this book comes across as realistic, but you can't be 100% sure. He seems to have been involved in too many rackets and knew too many mobsters for me to totally buy it. Having said that, a report came out after his death proving he was a real gangster and the book gives a good breakdown of a lot of different rackets the mob was involved in up to the early 70s. Check it out if you can get a cheap price.

Double Deal: The Inside Story of Murder, Unbridled Corruption, and the Cop Who Was a Mobster by Michael J. Corbitt and Sam Giancana (the nephew). This was a really well written and interesting book about a corrupt cop working for the Chicago Outfit. Goes into detail about rackets and figures that don't get covered very often such as Hy Larner and his machines. There are a few tall tales that left me a bit skeptical, but overall I would definitely recommend it.

Really even with the Pizza Connection and Valachi and another guy that starts with a C and there been a few flip and nothing??

Is the mob dying out in the minds of regular folks ?

Because regular folks loved Godfather and NY guys said that it was like the life but it’s not that movie was all over the place with a non- Italian as a consigliere .....yeah !


But tell you what if someone could make a factual movie from Lucchese , Profaci, Costello, Gambino ,Bonanno because of all the rats almost everything is out there .

Can not go before them because regular folks will never get it ....

Then again it’s possible that Americans don’t want or are no longer interested because all the info is out there including many of old cats ready to talk about the old days off the record because everyone is gone but Carmine P.

That sounds good. Thanks jjpuppet.


Mob Nemesis: How the FBI Crippled Organized Crime by Joe Griffin. Good book about an FBI agent who worked against the mob in Buffalo and Cleveland. Gives thorough details on all the cases he was involved in.

Read it, Great book about Cleveland and Buffalo. I read a lot of mob books, Ray Cerritos wife wrote about him that was good, Hes the one that got Danny Greene, he flipped and nobody bothered him. A good book in paperback, is the last lonely eagle about the mob assassination of Tampa Police ofc Richard Cloud, A lot on the Trafficantes and the Tampa mafia as well as the police corruption...one of the best books I ever read. Just read the book by Jerry Tillinghast, its new on kindle, It about Ray Patrarca specifically Rhode Island. Mentions Gerry Ouimette a lot as he was part of his crew. Ouimettes also wrote a book that wasn't too bad,

I got the book "Vinny Gorgeous: Ugly rise and fall of a NY mobster" by Anthony M DeStefano.

not much out there on Basciano so I loved it. Mainly talked about his reign as acting boss, Cicale, Pizzolo and Santoro murders and his trials. Also had a tiny bit on Bruno Indelicato. A must read for anyone who supports real men who do not fold.


And are there any in depth books about Bruno Indelicato? Cannot find much at all on him. Mainly just details on him in the commission trial for hitting Galante.

Would love a full book on Bruno. He is a legend. Son of a infamous powerful capo. Was a triggerman on one of the most infamous mob hits ever. Was one of the youngest capos in cosa nostra history. Was a defendant in the commission trial. Supposedly whacked dozens and dozens of guys. Convicted of murder twice and yet will be back on the streets in a couple years.

Wish could find more info and pics on Bruno.
