Based on previously unavailable information and nearly two decades of research, Crime Incorporated reveals for the first time all the unsavoury facts of the Mob's bloody evolution from a gang of uncouth, bumbling killers into the highly organized, smoothly running 'corporation' it is today.
William Balsamo, great-nephew of the first godfather, Don Guiseppe - 'Battista' - Balsamo, and George Carpozi, Jr. disclose the Mob's savage beginnings in the group of Italian immigrant - the 'Blank Hand' - who tore control of New York's waterfronts away from the Irish racketeers - the 'White Hand' - and went on from there.
They trace the Black Hand's coalescence into an organization who insidious influence reached across the country and into a presidential administration.
Crime Incorporated explores the horrifying facts behind the rise and fall of the Mob's most notorious leaders - Al Capone, Charles 'Lucky' Luciano, Vito Genovese, Frank Costello, Albert Anastasia, Joe Bonanno, Carlo Gambino, Joe Profaci, Thomas Luchese. And it goes behind the headlines of Rudolph Guiliani's pursuit of the Mob. - the Pizza Connection and Commission trials - to cite with chilling clarity the Mafia's control over daily life in America.
Crime Incorporated reads like a novel. But it is frightening, deadly true.
