The Mafia (Paperback)

William Balsamo

-  

Tracing its beginnings as an underground society which sprang up six hundred years ago in Sicily, to the Mob which went on to run organised crime throughout Italy and America, "The Mafia: The First 100 Years" tells the gripping story of the most mythical and misunderstood criminal organisation. How did the Mob evolve from a gang of bumbling killers into the smooth-running international 'corporation' of today? Drawing on nearly two decades of research, William Balsamo - great-nephew of the original godfather - and George Carpozi Jr. reveal the Mafia's coalescence into an organisation whose insidious influence reached across the Atlantic and into a presidential administration. Delving behind the headlines to uncover the true extent of the Mafia's influence, "The Mafia: The First 100 Years" reads like the most compelling crime fiction, yet is the terrifying, deadly truth.
