The Silent Don: The Criminal Underworld of Santo Trafficante Jr. exposes the life and ruthless times of one of America's most powerful and feared mob bosses. With a criminal empire that stretched from the Gulf Coast throughout the Caribbean, Trafficante was linked to drug trafficking, plots to kill Fidel Castro, and the assissination of JFK. Scott M. Deitche scoured court records, law-enforcement reports, newspaper accounts, and counted dozens of interviews to find the complete-and compelling-story of this enigmatic Mafioso don.
