"A comprehensive account of the legendary 1978 heist...?mpressive." -Publishers Weekly The crime that inspired the movie Goodfellas. The rest of story that couldn't be told-until now. One of the biggest scores in Mafia history, the Lufthansa Airlines heist of 1978 has become the stuff of Mafia legend-and a decades-long investigation that continues to this day. Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Anthony DeStefano sheds new light on this legendary unsolved case using recent evidence from the 2015 trial of eighty-year-old mafioso Vincent Asaro, who for the first time speaks out on his role in the fateful Lufthansa heist. This blistering you-are-there account takes you behind the headlines and inside the ranks of America's infamous Mafia families-with never-before-told stories, late-breaking news, and bombshell revelations: Praise for ANTHONY M. DESTEFANO and His Acclaimed Books "Thrilling American crime writing." -Jimmy Breslin, author of The Good Rat and winner of the Pulitzer Prize "DeStefano is a master at cutting through the secrecy of the Mafia hierarchy." -Publishers Weekly "The best and last word on the subject...?eStefano brings the story to life." -Jerry Capeci, creator of GangLandNews.com
