Front Cover
Adams Media, Feb 1, 2005 - Social Science - 256 pages
Features offbeat, unusual, and largely unknown details on historical Mafia figures as well as current crime bosses. Although the Mafia may take its omerta (code of silence) seriously, 101 Things You Didn't Know about the Mafia spills the beans. From what it really means to become a “made man,” to why an unfortunate fellow could find himself saddled with cement shoes, this entertaining book dishes out the dirt. Readers learn about Dutch Schultz's spiritual streak, Al Capone's crime-fighting brother, Frank Sinatra's bid to star in The Godfather, and more.
