Mafia Hits: 100 Murders That Changed the World Paperback
by M. A. Frasca
Since the late 19th century, the Mafia has been a presence in North America using intimidation and worse to exert its control over organized crime in the major cities and beyond - anything from loansharking to bootlegging during Prohibition to extortion, kidnapping and racketerring.
Throughout the 20th century, the ruthlessness of the Mafia has been in evidence: the list of Mob victims seems endless. 'Mafia Hits' recalls the most important executions - the rival bosses, the stool pigeons and snitches, the good cops and the dirty cops, the vicious feuds and the hit-men who lived by the gun and died by it.
All are here in this fascinating book.
