A new history of the American Mafia from a man who has seen it all from the inside – former mobster and internationally bestselling author Louis Ferrante.
How did a clandestine Sicilian criminal organisation come to exert its influence over nearly every level of US society?
Louis Ferrante led a heist crew for the Gambino crime family and served in America’s worst prisons, where he educated himself in law, science and history. Now he joins us to pull back the curtain on the world’s most infamous criminal fraternity.
From the potent political cauldron of nineteenth-century Sicily to American cities such as New Orleans, New York and the gangster’s paradise of Las Vegas, Ferrante will trace the political and economic forces that powered the mafia’s unstoppable rise – and deliver scoops and insights galore, from uncovering the origins of the word ‘mafia’ for the first time to revealing the truth about murders, rivalries, and more.
