Before "The Sopranos," there was The Syndicate-a ruthless group of men guilty of committing a thousand murders in the late '30s and '40s. From the highest levels of the U.S. government to the lowest levels of street crime, the Syndicate infiltrated everything from gambling to politics. Here is the best-selling account of the gangsters who called themselves "Murder, Inc." from the Assistant District Attorney who sent seven of them to the electric chair.
