  • Deal With The Devil

    Good read, one of the best for factual and background events regarding the Mafia families.  This book focuses on Gregory Scarpa, Sr., whom was an informant for the FBI.  Scarpa was in the top ranks of the Colombo crime family. 

    The book brings out official corruption as well as the dealings of the mafia.  Extensive factual acknowledgements, appendix and references as well.  Hundreds if not thousands of factual references and notes regarding each chapter. 

    Great book IMO, if you are at all interested in the subject at hand.  BTW, I am from NYC and I had a partner who happened to be a brother to one of the infamous mob bosses of NYC as well. 

    Highly recommended.  Thanks, Glen.

  • Thank you, Glen. I ll try to get hold of it and read it.
    All beings are born and steeped in debt. I know of no creature that negates this fact. The commodity they bought with borrowed means, is life, and the price for its duration, be it good or bad, is death.
