After a quarter of a century of silence, Henry Hill can finally tell us the rest of the story. Gangsters and Goodfellas picks up where Wiseguy left off, taking readers on the crazy ride of Henry's life—hiding out in the Witness Protection Program, doing prison time for drug charges, testifying in high profile, heavily-guarded mafia trials, leaving his wife and children and eventually ending up in, yes, the entertainment business.
