In 1987, seasoned journalist Jerry Capeci was hired by the New York Daily News to cover the crime beat. His reporting on the Mafia proved so popular that he was given a weekly column, which was tagged "Jerry Capeci's Gangland."

"Gangland" was an immediate hit with New Yorkers and continued for almost seven years. Capeci wrote on the everyday trials and tribulations of La Cosa Nostra, putting the mob under a microscope and laying bare the inner workings and day-to-day operations of both mob bosses and low-level street soldiers alike. He reported on such major mob events as John Gotti's murder conviction and Sammy "the Bull"Gravano's testimony that put Gotti behind bars.

Have not read book yet, still reading Karen Gravanos' book about her dad and his affiliation with the"Family Ties". I can guarantee though that will be in my top ten books to read. My
family said l must of been a gangster back in the day, because l am so infatuated with the "Process" of the lifestyle. Anyway thank you Jerry!
